Companies across the globe are beginning to see that one's personal life and work life are inseparable. Many are encouraging their employees to develop written Life Plans and giving them the training they need to do so. When employees feel valued, and are more productive and engaged, they create a culture that can truly be a strategic advantage in today's competitive environment.
- Helping employees do Life Planning communicates you care. Employees working for you have dreams, hopes, and aspirations. When you encourage Life Planning, you are essentially saying, "We want to help you accomplish your ultimate goals and dreams."
- Helping employees do Life Planning ensures they are productive at work. When employees engage in life planning, they are less likely to have something like a health crisis or marital conflict distract them at work. They can be more fully present on the job and focus on tasks at hand.
- Helping employees do Life Planning empowers them to be engaged on the job. When employees are working to attain passion and progress in every area of their life, they are less likely to be cynical or apathetic. They have the emotional resources to invest in their work and the customers they serve.

Living Forward will resonate with those who want the peace that comes from knowing what matters most to them and how to fill their days, weeks, months, and years with actions that will enable them to make the greatest difference possible. I have spoken on this topic to a wide array of industries and organizations including mortgage bankers, Realtors, fast-food owners, business consultants, social clubs, automotive manufacturers, and national quick-service food companies.
Living Forward is designed to be delivered as a keynote or in a workshop setting. The ideal length of time for the keynote speech is forty-five to sixty minutes. The Living Forward workshop is designed to be a three to four hour workshop. Workshop audience members will receive the customized Life Assessment Profile and Living Forward Workbook.
