What We Do

Delivered through mentors who are certified leaders of the initial Lifeplan tools, we can engage the hearts and minds of the participants in their own strategy for life. In the business world, if you change the conversation with employees, you change the culture; in the mentoring world, we believe that if you change the conversation with the mentee, you change their choices.

We drive the implementation of these tools through a core group of 50 Master Certified (ninja black belt) My Lifeplan facilitators. They will become responsible for certification and train-the-trainer of thousands of mentor facilitators. A two-day certification workshop will qualify a mentor to order materials for participants and to license the use of a facilitator guide and learning materials kit.

This core group is the linchpin in making the implementation work. They donate 1 to 2 days of their time a month. With our support they develop a set of self selection criteria for certification for both themselves and their mentor facilitators. Criteria include selection traits and characteristics, percent of participants registering Lifeplan versus the number trained, recertification standards, and assessment criteria.

My Lifeplan: A Journey of Choices, Decisions, and Consequences
This experiential learning program is a modularized 6-8 hours of instruction that can be facilitated one on one, in small groups of 6-8, or in large groups 100 or more. Modules can be run sequentially or spread out over time in multiple units with application assignments run between the classroom meetings. Click to see larger version

My Lifeplan is a highly interactive discovery-learning design where discussion through guided exercises allows the participant to assess themselves and their readiness for the road of life and the many sirens along that road from middle school through high school and college. Each participant completing the modules will be encouraged to register their plan with the Lifeplan Institute.
