Designing Your Success

Designing Your Success was launched in 2019 as an intensive, research-based professional development program that helps mission-driven organizations build growth mindset and improve career resilience within their teams and communities. The program was developed in collaboration with a cross-disciplinary team of researchers and educators from Stanford’s, Graduate School of Business, and Graduate School of Education, in partnership with Stanford Life Design Lab Co-Founder and Co-Author of New York Times bestseller Designing Your Life, Dave Evans.

What is Designing Your Success?

Designing Your Success is a ten-module series delivered by New Sector's certified facilitators. The program can be offered in person and virtually through intensive multi-day workshops or over several months via one to two hour sessions.

Side-by-side with their colleagues, participants learn how to develop a roadmap for their personal and professional success; build confidence to navigate ambiguity and "get unstuck;" reframe fear, failure, and risk taking; and develop and test real life plans within a nurturing and highly collaborative learning environment. 

For organizations ready to take the next step and bring this curriculum in-house, New Sector offers a train-the-trainer certification that allows workforce educators to deliver the program independently within their organizations.
