two-day PersonPlanet Leadership Program
is for people who want to change the world. The program is an intense
series of interactive multimedia presentations, individual exercises
and explorations, and small group discussions. All are designed
to provide you with the perspective, vision, information, tools,
experience and power needed to get a fix on your life, determine
your unique set of experiences and knowledge, and develop an action
plan for leveraging these resources in ways that can make the biggest
difference in the world. The work is intense, stimulating, challenging,
life-altering, and fun. The rewards will be similar.
During this two-day program participants will develop a mini-“business
plan” for the next five years of their life that is designed
to provide both profitable employment and to make a significant
contribution to making the world a better place. Participants will
engage in individual work that leads to clarity about their life’s
purpose, their personal goals, gifts, interests, and talents—and
how the synergy of these can be developed into something that can
change the world.
The program starts off with a BigPictureSmallWorld perspective and
vision for the world. For a four-minute preview of this 2-hour presentation,
see the BigPictureSmallWorld
movie. Interspersed with this presentation will be many personal
envisioning, inventorying, and planning sessions that will identify
opportunities and the means for making them real.
