Sarah had a very comfortable position in a well known food company in Switzerland. Out of work she liked playing guitar, outdoor sports, and had an active social live. She liked her work and had a nice life, however, she wasn’t happy. Sarah wanted a more creative environment / job but wasn’t sure what to do since her major wasn’t a “creative one” We spent some time working on figuring out what was the real challenge. I turned it wasn’t the work itself but a matter of unbalance between her values and what she was doing. We did some exercises to cultivate creativity, we researched some ways she could find a better position within the company. She was designing her way forward until she found something she really liked.
Sooner than she thought she found an innovation team in the States lhat were ooking for a person with her skill-set. She moved few months later as an expat. In the process of moving she met her now husband, a Creative director who moved with her too.
By reframing the problem, prototyping different possibilities and being more aware of what she wanted in life, Sarah designed a life that worked for her: full of creativity, adventure and building her professional career in a more creative environment.
Accepted belief: If you are unhappy at work look for another one and then you’ll be fine. Reframed: Life is a process so design it holistically and in a way that works for you.
For the last five years I've been working with individuals like Sarah to help them design a life that works for them. I worked with people in different stages in life with one thing in common: they had now idea what to do with their lives at that moment.
Human Centered Design works great for unfixed problems. Guess what? Life is one of those.
