Course overview

Discover Your Zone of Genius

Life's too short to do work you don't love. We'll give you a blueprint to think clearer, live louder, and find your life's work.

Who This Course Is For


You secretly wonder about those people who always "knew" what they wanted to be when they grow up and wonder if you missed something.


In the back of your mind you’re thinking, “Is this... it? There’s got to be something more.”


You want to find a career that's more fulfilling, meaningful and aligned with your personality and strengths but not sure where to begin.

What You'll Get

Get confirmation and clarity on your direction

Get a direct 1-1 with us and walk away with clarity about what you can do immediately to apply all the insights gained from the course.

Crystallize your work "Must-Haves"

Make choosing your next career a clear and simple, no-brainer decision. This is absolutely possible once you get crystal clear on your work non-negotiables (especially the non-obvious ones) — all in a single evening's work.

Discover your Zone of Genius

See how your Zone of Genius has played a role in your life and career thus far and how it can play a central role in how you make your biggest life decisions.

Discover your Work Tendencies

Quantify and clarify what aspects of work you naturally gravitate towards and see how uniquely different it is from your peers.

360º view of your strengths

Finally get an accurate read on how the world sees your strengths and capabilities — rather than through your own biases, insecurities, projections, and that pesky "Imposter Syndrome"!

        An impressive course... I come away with new understandings and language to describe who I am (and want to be) in the workplace and beyond. If you’re trying to figure out where to focus your professional energies, this is a very effective way to get closer in just over 6 hours.

        I have taken quite a few course like these. One thing that stands out from others, is the real world application of the frameworks used through all the sessions. I felt I can take substantial action from here onwards!

        I came to the course from the perspective of trying to narrow my focus and find my strengths. This was a lovely, safe, and lower-stakes environment to do some self-evaluation in a way that made sense and is effective.

        I would recommend this course for anyone feeling rudderless in their career, in a transitional period, especially someone who has been in a career for a particular career for several years to help differientiate between what it is they are good at doing and what they may hate about their current role.

        It felt like being told - "this thing you do, that you don't even notice, it is special, it's a superpower." It ended my comparison game and led to self compassion. I was able to let go of pressure of having to effort in other areas and instead I could just continue offering my gifts.

        Even though I already considered myself relatively self-aware, discovering my zone of genius brought a new level of self-awareness that felt deeper and more comprehensive than ever before. It gave me permission to own who I am, not fear my strengths, and make sense of my natural ways of being.

        It helped me get super clear on my strengths, which has given me more confidence to take ownership of the type of work that comes easily to me. This, in turn, has made work a whole lot more fun.

        It was really interesting to see a reflection of something I feel like I always knew intuitively, but had a hard time representing to others. It has given me reassurance to be unquestionably myself and optimism for the future of the psychological sciences.

        It's incredibly clarifying, like taking muddy water and turning it into clear water, it made explicit some dichotomies that I now feel more comfortable accepting.
