What is Life-Work Discovery?
Life-Work Discovery is a model for helping people discover their passions and empowering them to design a life and work they love. The model features an experiential, results-oriented process that recognizes and honors each person’s unique qualities and needs.
Future Design Studio uses the Life-Work Discovery model to focus on the entire world of one’s life. We are not victims, but rather, creators of our lives.
Consider this 7-Step approach that includes the following components:
Deep Self-Exploration – Look inward to discover your passions and complete probing assignments geared to surfacing your unique talents and gifts.
Fears & Resistance – Seeking fulfillment clients inevitably encounter the unknown which opens a Pandora’s Box of fear and resistance. They prefer to stay in well-established ruts. However, if you give yourself to the Life-Work Discovery process, you are able to accept your fears as normal, part of the human condition, and are empowered to transform your personal barriers into pathways to success.
Research – Sometimes our resistance to change and self-actualization lies in the simple reality we don’t have enough information. By gathering and assimilating information and creating your own support team, you gather the resources needed to help you reach your goals.
Action Plan – To create a life you love, you need a map to help you find your way. Using the Life-Work Discovery process, you define your short- and long-term goals while formulating an action plan to achieve them.
Coaching – Some fortunate people can “go it alone.” For the rest of us, however, a trained, skill coach is essential to clarify issues, identify roadblocks, and shorten the time needed to walk the path to fulfillment.
Unlocking Doors – People help people. Through this process, you learn how to identify and put yourself in front of people who can open doors, cultivate those relationships and engage them to help you overcome obstacles on your way to success.
Fulfillment arises from within. It emerges from an understanding of our True Nature.
To create a life and career you love, you need to:
- Be clear about what you want
- Discover the many options available to you
- Design a plan that meets your needs
