The Signature Program offers the same tools, resources, and content in both the in-person and virtual programs. The main differences are that the in-person program offers four day-long workshops where you’re in the room, fully-immersed, and focused on your business, while the virtual program includes six workshops of shorter length that offer the flexibility of learning from anywhere while still being able to tend to other responsibilities in the day. The virtual program also offers more frequent one-on-one touchpoints but requires you to practice discipline when it comes to participation and engagement in the workshop. The in-person program gives you the opportunity to connect more personally with coaches and peers, a benefit that can be difficult to replicate online.
You qualify for the Program if you:
The Program works for entrepreneurs who:
Entrepreneurs in the Strategic Coach Program benefit greatly from being with a peer group that shares similar issues and confidence levels, and has similar levels of resources available to get things done. In our experience, issues, resources, and confidence levels tend to shift at certain thresholds of net personal income. While the workshop material is the same at all qualifying levels, the difference in the peer group tends to create a much different workshop experience for participants at each level. We strongly encourage entrepreneurs to join at the highest income level they qualify for to get the most out of the Program.
Independent surveys of the vast majority of Strategic Coach participants show that on average:
This is possible because participants are able to greatly simplify their lives, increase their focus and productivity, strengthen their teams, and leverage their unique talents.
We call the Strategic Coach Program a “lifetime focusing system”: Our concepts, tools, and strategies are not just about money and success, but about using these as the means to build a life that’s meaningful to you.

The in-person workshop day consists of a combination of focusing exercises, planning, creative thinking, and sharing with other participants. It is an interactive experience, as opposed to a lecture, with opportunities for individual work, and both large- and small-group discussions. The workshops are held quarterly, and each day runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
A catered breakfast and lunch are also provided at each workshop.
The virtual workshop day also consists of focusing exercises, planning, creative thinking, and sharing with other participants. It’s also an interactive experience — albeit different due to the remote nature of the program — and offers opportunities for individual work and group discussions. The workshops are held six times a year and are four hours each.
The Strategic Coach Program is a lifetime focusing program. The majority of Strategic Coach participants consider the Program to be an ongoing part of their entrepreneurial lives. The initial three years create the foundation for exponentially greater results thereafter. If you’re wondering what time frame you’re committing to, for most entrepreneurs, it takes about three years to make the major transformations in their habits, support structures, capabilities, and relationships that allow them to break through to where really dramatic new opportunities are possible. The first three years of the Program are designed to support and guide entrepreneurs through these challenging but incredibly rewarding times.
After the first three years, participants usually have a greatly expanded vision of the possibilities for their future. Some participants choose to continue in the Core Program, where they’ll gain the structure and insights to help them make quantum leaps in their income and achievements, all the while ensuring that the foundation they’ve worked so hard to build remains strong enough to support this new growth and to fund the realization of new dreams.
At every level of the Strategic Coach Program, your coach will be a successful entrepreneur and current Strategic Coach client with many years’ experience implementing the tools and concepts of the Program in their own business.
All of our coaches continue to run their own businesses and are participants in the Program in addition to their business coaching responsibilities. Coaches are selected through a rigorous screening process and extensively trained in the delivery of the materials.
Between workshops, you will have access to a Program Advisor who is an expert at helping entrepreneurs implement the tools and concepts of the Program in their lives and businesses. Your Program Advisor is available by phone and email to ensure that you maximize the return on your investment in the Program.
Another area where entrepreneurs often appreciate support is in communicating what they’re learning to their team members. Our Team Programs have been specially developed to help you bring your team on board and maximize their capabilities and effectiveness in helping you realize your expanding vision of the future.
A few times a year, we also offer optional specialized workshops for participants to attend with their spouses to focus exclusively on strengthening and renewing that important relationship.
Knowledge Products — books, audio presentations, and software that relay important concepts and tools from the Program — are another resource that is available to help you share what you’re learning with your team, family, community, and others.
As well, Strategic Coach clients have exclusive access to Strategic Coach® Online where they can use our online tools, watch exclusive videos, listen to audio presentations, and more.
Occasionally, emergencies arise that make it impossible to attend a workshop as scheduled. Though we do not offer refunds for missed sessions, we will do our best to offer rescheduling options that match the missed session as closely as possible to accommodate these circumstances. In the rare event that a close match to the missed session is not available during a reasonable time frame, we will substitute a personalized Coaching Call, done by phone, to keep you on track. We cannot stress enough, however, the benefits to you and to your group of attending your workshop as scheduled if at all possible.
The Strategic Coach Program is unique among coaching programs in that it’s been evolving for over 30 years and is based on over 40 years of experience working with highly successful entrepreneurs. Everything about the Program is tailored to help entrepreneurs multiply their results, from the powerful content, which is constantly evolving, to the structure of the Program itself and its top-notch entrepreneur coaches.
Fees for the Strategic Coach Program are paid upfront on an annual basis. For the sake of fairness, all participants must pay their fees in full before attending the first session of a new year. This creates a level playing field for all entrepreneurs in a given workshop as everyone knows that everyone else in the group has made the same financial commitment they have. In our experience, this translates into a commitment to participate fully and get the most out of the year’s sessions, which improves the experience for everyone.
