At Human Things, we believe in the human potential of everyone to determine their path in life and work. Our Life Design work is centered around the belief that people are happiest when their values and the work they do are in alignment. Our unique practice incorporates elements of Design Thinking, LEGO Serious Play and Futures Thinking to help you apply creative and collaborative problem-solving skills to every facet of your personal and work life. Come play with us to unlock your potential and sculpt a future of meaning, purpose and possibility.


Session One

What’s Design Thinking and Life Design?

An introduction to the basics of the Life Design approach
and mindsets. Why approach Life Design through the lens
of Design Thinking? Four key mindsets: Curiosity, Bias to
Action, Re-framing, and Radical Collaboration.

Warm-Up Activity

Meet your collaborators

Identity Module

What’s your superpower? Create a list of accomplishments
that you feel most proud of. These may or may not have
anything to do with what society considers important
achievements. Tell the story of how you got the results that
you did, and what skills, strengths, or characteristics you
drew upon.

Introduce the Journey to Now Map Assignment

Session Two

Alternate Version of You

Individually generate as many ideas (about potential future
careers, ideas for life change, values you’d like to boost, etc.)
as you can. Present to your design partner. Capture their
suggestions and write down your high-level plan.

Art of the Possible

Consider examples of small, incremental steps that real
people take. Refine the ideas of future you.

Prototyping Strategy

Create a strategy for the next steps, consider how you will
use radical collaboration, and commit to actionable steps
you can take immediately.

Looking Ahead

Continue on with a community of changemakers. We’ll lay
out next steps for ongoing collaboration and inpsiration.
