  • UNDERSTAND YOURSELF
    – Analyze your past and present

    – Set your goals
  • DESIGN YOUR FUTURE
    – Plan and execute

Once you’re done, you’ll know what to do next.

 

Our 40 PBP exercises lead you through your past and present, your preferences, ambitions, relationships, career, strengths, capabilities, network, goals, dreams, and a multitude of other elements that make up the basis for your future prospects.

Your output is an ebook, 50-100 pages long or more, containing

  • Your life and career overview and
  • A plan for your future, ready for execution.

The Personal Business Plan was first developed by Stephen Bruyant-Langer in 1996 as his game-changing Executive Coaching Program. In 2013, Stephen documented and eternalized the PBP system as a book. And finally, in 2017 we created PBP digitally as our unique online Toolkit, readily accessible for individual users. Today, The Personal Business Plan system has been validated by thousands of coaching clients, readers, and Toolkit subscribers.
