The Adam’s Choice approach takes into consideration how you are balancing your 6 human dimensions: emotional, physical, intellectual, social, occupational, and spiritual.

This will be the first step towards becoming conscious about how you make decisions.

There will be an online snapshot that will identify the two top dimensions of your life that most need focus and attention and this result, along with the survey discussion session, will define your own path in this learning experience.

Each participant's journey will be, therefore, unique.

Everyone will work on the occupational dimension, plus a personalized one (matching one of the top two).

The 6 Dimensions


The skill to open our minds to new ideas and experiences. Also, the desire to learn new tools, improve skills and seek challenges, over and over, in pursuit of lifelong learning.


To have a meaningful life aligned with our core values and that fulfils our purpose.


To achieve a lifestyle that ensures health and physical condition to live the life you ambitioned. Means to live in a balanced state of body, mind, and spirit.


The ability to understand ourselves and our emotions and cope with the challenges life can bring.


To achieve personal fulfilment from our jobs or our chosen career fields while still maintaining balance in our lives. Desire to contribute to make a positive impact on the organizations we work in and on society as a whole.


How we relate to and connect with others.
The ability to establish and maintain positive and meaningful relationships with family, friends and coworkers.

The Venue

Nova SBE

Carcavelos Campus
A space for people, dialogue and opportunity.

Ever since the very beginning, we have been aware of our role and, for the past 40 years, we have chosen to participate in the transformation of our world positively.

We believe we have a commitment to every single person who keeps wondering, discovering, creating; people who keep trying to improve themselves and the world in which they can have a meaningful impact.

We believe we should support all those who strive and thrive to be better and to do better as people, professionals, leaders — as citizens.

Tomorrow as yesterday, we are a school that welcomes all those who keep believing in our ability to do better, as curious minds and resilient souls.

We are the grounds where tools and skills can flourish, where you expand your
horizons and rediscover your path.

Watching history being written and to be part of it is a rare privilege.


The best place in Portugal
to spend a day, or a lifetime.
Cascais is a heaven of beauty and calm by the Atlantic, 20 minutes away from Lisbon and Sintra.

This traditional Portuguese fishing town has been beautifully kept and preserved, maintaining the small-town familiarity and the true sea spirit that has bred known sailors and intrepid fishermen alike. Historically, Cascais was the summer retreat of Portuguese nobility, and today the town is an elegant fusion of decorative 19th-century architecture, historical landmarks, an inspiring Museum Neighborhood, an artistic district and modern tourist facilities.

Carcavelos is fantastic for a relaxing beach day, for basking under the glorious sun and splashing around in the cold sea. The area attracts an equal mix of Portuguese and foreign tourists.

This will be your venue for transformative experiences and unique opportunities.
