About the Course

Navigating The Modern Workplace: strategies to be well, find fulfilment and harness purpose at work

10th September – 15th October 2024

Mastering the technical sides of our jobs is only one part of the true challenge of succeeding at work. What we need to do with equal focus is learn how to balance our spheres of emotional, social, physical and existential health.

The modern workplace has brought us a range of extraordinary benefits and joys, including new technologies and the option of a more flexible working pattern. But it can also feel as though modern working practices have plunged us ever deeper into agitation, worry and panic; never before in the history of humanity have we expected so much from ourselves – or from life more broadly.

Navigating The Modern Workplace is a 6-week online professional course consisting of six 2-hour workshops from The School of Life at Work’s Wellbeing Journey. It identifies a range of themes that present acute challenges to our wellbeing at work and provides strategies and techniques to overcome obstacles with insight, creativity and patience. At the end of the course, you’ll receive a 1-year subscription to The School of Life app, so we can continue to support you on your journey of self development with compelling bite size modules on emotional maturity, available 24/7.

The purchase of the 6-week course includes:

Pre- and post-workshop resources and workbooks (online)
A 1-year subscription to The School of Life App
