In this master mind group, the agenda belongs to the group and each person’s participation and commitment is foundational to success. We will be roughly following the tools from Stanford professors Bill Burnett and Dave Evans’ Designing Your Life text and workbook (supplied by Global NP Solutions).
Each month you will complete design thinking activities to build the next steps in your career and your life. You will be in the “hot seat” to share, brainstorm, and collaborate each month as well. Your commitment to both give and accept ideas in the MasterMind group is critical for success.
Some topics we’ll cover in the Life Design MasterMind Group include the following.
- What drives your life view and why you work
- Investigate your personal and professional motivations
- When are you in “flow”?
- Work-life balance (physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being)
- Apply design thinking to yourself – today and tomorrow!
- Prototype different “lives” with your MasterMind “board of directors”
You will also have access to a group message board and personalized resource library.
What’s Expected of You
- Absolute commitment to participate in EVERY master mind group meeting
- 7-9 am First Tuesday of the month (location: TBD based on group member preferences)
- Setting and achieving goals
- Space, structure, support, and motivation for other participants
- Completing all design thinking tools, journals, and exercises
- Trust and confidentiality
Please download the application form and email the completed form to firstname.lastname@example.org. Your selection to the Life Design Master Mind Group (LDMM) is contingent upon a fully completed and approved application form and the required confidentiality agreement.
If you want to work faster or if you want to work personally with me as your Life Design coach, we will meet weekly (in person or via telephone) for 8 weeks to develop your next steps. You will work on similar Design Thinking exercises at an accelerated pace. This option is available for entrepreneurs and others who are embarking on an immediate change in their personal or professional lives. NOTE: Life Design Coaching is NOT restricted to any geographical area since we meet one-on-one.
Online Training Alternative
If you don’t live in Houston or the face-to-face group won’t work for you, we can still provide the tools and support through an inexpensive online alternative. Upon payment, you will receive a link to the training class on our sister website (www.Simple-PDH.com) that includes all of the same web content: videos, audio recordings, templates, and a discussion forum. This is a great, affordable option (only $575 for 6 months) for those who want to accelerate their Life Design or for those who are unable to attend the Life Design Master Mind group in person.
The Life Design Master Mind Group is a 6-month program and you are committing to the entire program to develop your next stage career design. The cost of the program is $200 per month or you may pay $1,000 upfront for a significant discount. You will need to provide a credit card number to complete the transaction but you do not need a PayPal account. Your Life Design Master Mind Group access will typically begin within 24 hours of the PayPal transaction clearing.
