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.
We are all alike. We share the same thoughts, doubts, and fears. So why not take a shortcut to the top? Learn from the best. Emulate success. Prepare your future by being as strategic about your own life as you are about your work.
Our executive coaching programs are freedom put into a system.
Tailored to you individually
All our executive coaching programs are tailored to you individually. Your needs and expectations always set the basis for our coaching. That said, you will find our executive coaching to be quite directive. We tell you what we see, we advise you specifically what to do – in other words, we do not hold back on our opinions.
In a full program, you will complete 10 carefully planned 2-hour coaching sessions with your PBP Coach over a period of 6-12 months. In between the coaching, sessions you will read the corresponding book chapters and work in the Toolkit, documenting your reflections and conclusions. You will also interact with your PBP Coach about any specific issues you may have along the way, such as a CV or a board presentation.
If you need something other than a full program, we will design it to suit your individual requirements.
The learning philosophy behind The Personal Business Plan implies that you alternate between:
Completing 40 exercises in your 10 one-2-one sessions with your executive PBP coach – using your auditive and visual learning styles.
Reading 10 chapters in the PBP Book – using your logical and sequential learning styles.
Reflecting upon your findings and documenting them in the Toolkit – using your creative and deductive learning styles.
A renowned business psychologist once described this system as the ideal pedagogical process. It successively refines and synthesizes your ideas and turns them into action.
Output – Your personal plan as an ebook
Your specific output is your Personal Business Plan in the form of an ebook – spanning 50-100 pages or more. Here you will find all the answers to the questions you have been wrestling with for years. Its final pages are a specific timeline, ready for you to execute.
This all sounds extremely structured. And it is! But within this solid framework, we are at complete liberty to prioritize and address your most important and imminent issues. For example,
If you’re looking for a job, we will twist the system into a high-quality outplacement program (cover letter, CV, headhunter contacts, network, interview training).
If you’re looking for a promotion, we will transform the system into an ambitious career planner.
If you’re looking for personal development, we will use the system from an existential angle.
No matter what, The Personal Business Plan always focuses on your individual success criteria and delivers upon them. We provide you with a shortcut to the top.
Our Both/And approach
Our learning philosophy ensures that we always use a “Both/And” approach:
Both flexible and structured
Both soft and tough
Both ideas and action
Both plan and execution.
Our experience from thousands of clients, thousands of interviews, and thousands of executive coaching sessions are at your service. We will not let you down!
