Description

So, you’re planning some big change in your life, are you? There is a lot of noise out there about reinvention, transformation and the like. It would seem (with only slight exaggeration) that there are more books, podcasts, and thought pieces on the “evolutionary journey” than there are people making changes. Granted, some of it is practical information worth paying attention to, but where do you go when you’d like to be more introspective and open-minded about what you’re setting out to do?

In this course based on our popular book we offer a set of exercises that should help you see your “next thing” in a more expansive light. Starting at Your Philosophical Center we dig into the values, mission, people and associations you make along the way. Then on to Fresh Perspectives with some fun techniques founded in open-mindedness including visualization, using constraints, mind mapping, and even deja vu. Then we come back to earth with The Tactical, our most useful survival techniques for hacking through the day-to-day and having the endurance to stay standing.

We’ve built our company around a cause we really believe in, with people we trust and respect. Our hope is that the things we’ve learned along the way can help guide your next move in life or career and even help you enjoy the process.

Who this course is for:

  • Career movers
  • Budding entrepreneurs
