What happens in a Strategic Coach workshop?

In this post I’ll share my notes and photos from today’s Strategic Coach workshop in Toronto, Canada taught by Dan Sullivan. This is all from 11 June 2018 in the 10X Ambition class.

Introduction

At each seat, business owners are given our quarterly books and workshop materials.

Dan Sullivan’s book this quarter is called Capableism. We also received a copy of Willpower Doesn’t Work by Benjamin Hardy.

Read my highlights and notes from the Willpower book here.

Agenda

The interior index page gives us an idea of what we’ll do, including activities and discussion about:

  • How You Make Your Money
  • Ten Biggest Game Changers

We will also work on handouts with these titles:

  • The Moving Future
  • Your Next Four “Who’s”
  • _______’s 4 x 4 (Ex: Melissa’s 4 x 4)

Capableism by Dan Sullivan

Grow your capability, Grow your collaboration, Grow your business

Dan’s newest book is a response to what he’s seeing in today’s news cycles and political movements. He said:

  • Capitalism is a way of channeling individual’s desire to be more capable.
  • Look at what people are striving to do. Generally, they all want to be more capable.
  • The book gives you an insight into how you can help people be more capable.

4×4 with Dan and Melissa

Dan and Melissa reviewed Melissa’s 4×4 so we could see the definition of her role. This include elements for:

  1. Performance: Alert, Curious, Responsive, Resourceful
  2. Results: Faster, Easier, Cheaper, Bigger
  3. Being A Hero: (position-specific)
  4. Drives Dan Crazy: (position-specific)

Group Discussions

Several times during this day, we broke out into small groups to discuss what we wrote on our worksheets. This happened during these times:

  • The Moving Future
  • How You Make Your Money

Interesting Clients

  • Kym is a Consultant from Australia, who bought a business for $700k and sold it eight months later for over $10,000,000.
Me and Steve, two clients of Strategic Coach 10X program

Steve has been one of my biggest supporters in Strategic Coach! He lives in Detroit and got me interested in fasting.

Bonus: Client Cocktail Party

After class, we were all welcomed to visit Dan and Bab’s lake house for a private cocktail party with appetizers and stimulating conversation.

I don’t say “stimulating conversation” lightly: I was genuinely inspired and challenged in my thinking during the party. It is always fun to hear Dan’s world view and opinion. He regularly speaks with hundreds of successful business owners so he sits with a very unique perspective.

Conclusion

I like these classes and I’m happy to be a paying client. There’s something special about being in a room of other successful business owners who are all dedicating time to self-improvement and growth.

Our eyes only see and our ears only hear what our brain is looking for.
