We are very glad that the results of our ongoing research on Life Design have been accepted for presentation at the Academy of Management Annual Meeting 2020
Departing from traditional one-on-one coaching sessions, we investigate the effectiveness of a collaborative life design method based on Design thinking and conducted in large groups. Through a quasi-experiment we find that participants who attended the life design workshop significantly increased their Positive Psychological Capital (specifically self-efficacy, resilience and hope), their self-esteem and the presence of meaning in life. The qualitative data analysis revealed that the intervention allowed students to broaden their sight on life, discover authenticity by reframing their measures of success.
