The Personal Business Plan -
A blueprint for running your life
Stephen Bruyant-Langer has documented his unique personal development system in two best-selling leadership books.
The Personal Business Plan universe comprises two books about leadership and personal development. They both explain the concept and methodology of The Personal Business Plan system, and they are both very popular.
The Personal Business Plan – A blueprint for running your life is quite academic in its approach, whereas Your Next Career – A headhunter’s guide to lifelong success is lighter in its form.
(Lindhardt & Ringhof 2012, in Danish)
Stephen Bruyant-Langer’s bestselling book "The Personal Business Plan - A blueprint for running your life" is about addressing the realities of change at all levels every day in your life, so you can achieve the success you want. The Personal Business Plan provides a structure for life long self-management and carves out your route to success. You are in charge and you are the sole responsible! The important message is: “I need to change”. And you are not alone. We all need to change in order to succeed in life. Stephen calls it Serial Mastery: When you’ve become excellent at something, then it’s time to reinvent yourself.
Danish speakers should also check out Stephen's first book "Your Next Career - A headhunter's guide to lifelong success". It deals with similar subjects and is a very successful leadership book in Denmark.

Stephen helped me reach my true potential. I called Stephen because I was stuck.
I am much clearer about my priorities and “mission” in life, which makes me more comfortable in making choices. I think many senior executives could benefit from The Personal Business Plan.
With “Your Personal Business Plan” your biggest existential questions look like common sense.
I met Stephen at a turning point in my life. I had performed outstandingly at work, was half way through my executive MBA, and in search of a major up-leveling of my career.
The combination of coaching sessions, the book, and continuously documenting my personal progress in the online Toolkit ensured that my reflections became fully internalized.
Stephen was my coach and dedicated mentor for 12 months when I happened to be ‘in-between corporate roles’ in Bangkok. PBP is a fascinating journey, bringing self-insight for better and for worse.
Based on title only, The Personal Business Plan might sound like yet another unleash-your-unrealized-potential book. It isn’t. My meeting with Stephen’s thinking forced me to review my accomplishments as well as my motivators in a different light.
During my personal and professional life, I have encountered many skilled, clever and outstanding professionals — but Stephen is unique.
When you have a busy day, you often forget to stop and notice what makes you happy. Stephen has helped me clarify what matters in my life.
The Personal Business Plan is an immensely efficient tool – for clarifying potentials and priorities as well as for determining your future path.
If you dare to challenge your beliefs about your professional life, the Personal Business Plan (PBP) has by far the best mindset and methods I’ve tried.
The deep dive exercises in the online Toolkit open a room for reflection and creation of a strategic direction in your life.
