Fast Forward Focuses on Four Areas


What does extraordinary success look like in your whole life? Using our 7-question Bold Vision Exercise, participants write and share their ambitions and dreams — even if they don’t know how to achieve them or could fail. This provides a compass for the year ahead.


Participants reverse engineer the steps to make their ambitions a reality. They create a 90-Day Action Plan committing to clear actions, timing, and outcomes. Identify reactive habits that thwart progress and adopt intentional habits that fuel focus and productivity.


Appreciate the brain science behind the harsh internal voice that contributes to imposter syndrome. Participants learn to transform negative stories that hold them back into empowering narratives that propel them forward. Improve resilience, confidence, relationships, and happiness.


Improve listening, coaching and relationships. Participants learn to use the Fast Forward Conversation Planner to set a desired outcome and elevate influence and contribution. They coach people to solve their own problems and leave people empowered and in action.
