Program Description

Think back on your life and how you arrived at where you are today. Did you envision where you wanted to be and then map out a strategy for getting there? Or, have you bounced around like a bumper car from one thing to the next? New research shows that only 15% of adults have a written plan for their life. But what if you believe that you have more to offer? Much more.

The Strategy For You Personal Development System is a virtual developmental course designed to help people apply the foundational principles of business strategy to their life. This video-based program will provide you with the knowledge, skills and tools to maximize your strategic potential. Throughout the program, you will review video modules and complete exercises to apply the material to your specific work. These exercises are referred to throughout the program as “Bridgework,” and can be completed with templates found in the workbook.
