Designing your life: Innovating from the Inside Out - Online course NEW DATES!

Course Overview: 

You have always known that work-life balance is critical to your well-being and happiness. Today, this notion of  ‘life-balance’ that acknowledges the interconnectedness of the different dimensions our life is entering mainstream thinking like never before. Buoyed by the growth of books on ‘Happiness’ and the study of what contributes towards 'Personal Productivity', leading universities are offering courses that allow students to take an inner journey. 

At the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education, we are excited to offer this cutting-edge course that bridges the gap between the ‘self-help’ genre of books and the theoretical research by Ph.D.s in psychology. This month-long course will give you the space, structure, support and motivation to answer some very fundamental questions regarding your passions, your strengths, your goals, your limiting beliefs (yes, everyone has some), your priorities, your comfort zone, and your key relationships.
