Designing your Life Course

Today, the notion of ‘life-balance’ that acknowledges the interconnectedness of the different dimensions of 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’, this course guides students through that inner journey.

This cutting-edge course bridges the gap between the ‘self-help’ genre of books and the theoretical research by PhDs in psychology.

It will give you the space, structure, support and motivation to answer some very fundamental questions about your passions, strengths, goals, priorities, your comfort zone, key relationships, and your limiting beliefs (yes, everyone has some). Map out your path toward success and well-being!
