I'm always looking for ways or systems to better understand my clients and for them to understand themselves. The more light we can shed on how we naturally function in the world, the better equipped we are at succeeding in business. I came across Human Design over 20 years ago and was fascinated by the complexity of the system and it's focus on helping people understand how they are “designed” to operate in the world. Including the way they process information and make decisions – which is a critical piece for anyone to know about themselves in pursuing entrepreneurship.
Human Design is a synthesis of eastern and western astrology, the I Ching, the Chakra system, Kabbalah and Quantum Physics. On a more practical level, it’s a tool, an electrical map that shows you how you process energy.
