Too many people unintentionally drift through life, so we guide people to discover a plan for their life that leads to breakthrough insight, intentional purpose, meaning and direction.

Signs you need a LifePlan

You want to stop drifting through life

You want to live a life of purpose & significance

You lack clarity on long-term vocational direction

You have success in some life domains at the expense of others

You sense you want to make a big change but want confirmation

Why LifePlan is the better life plan approach

One-on-one facilitation

Utilizing an objective and outside facilitator to guide you through a proven and powerful process leads to a greater level of truth, breakthrough and perspective as compared to completing exercises on your own.

Grounded in your reality

Too many life planning processes either fully disregard or downplay our past.  LifePlan’s deep dive into your past will discover the truth of your reality, while uncovering the nuggets of truth about your past that will make your future better.

Holistic System

The 20 exercises you are facilitated through during LifePlan gains clarity on who you are (perspective), your purpose (mission), long-term direction (vision), and then makes it clear what you need to do with your life (strategy).
Working on my life plan with Tom was an unbelievably illuminating experience! It brought a ton of clarity to my life‘s purpose and what matters most to me. I came into the Life Plan with high expectations and I ultimately came out of the experience with 10 times more than what I expected. Tom is masterful at what he does. #TrustTheProcess

Working through the Life Plan with Tom was an eye opening experience. It gave me insight into what moments lead to where I am today and gave me clarity on my path forward.

How do you know where you are going in your company if you don’t know what the end goal of your life is? It’s great to have a mission and vision for your team and business, but it’s exponentially more impactful when you wake up every morning knowing you have personal purpose in all you do – at home and in the office. Know yourself, know your reason for being, and then go, infuse that into all you do. You’ll be glad you did and more content and engaged.

LifePlan Heritage

LifePlan was created by Tom Paterson one of the leading strategic planning practitioners of the 20th century.  Paterson also created StratOp – a powerful strategic operating system for organizations. The father of modern management, Peter Drucker, described Paterson as the “Process Practitioner” due to Paterson’s conceiving & developing practical processes & tools around Drucker’s management theories. The Paterson processes of LifePlan and StratOp therefore stand in the line of arguably the greatest business theoretician, Peter Drucker and the greatest process practitioner, Tom Paterson. Tom Paterson’s career accomplishments are exceptional, including patenting the original innovation for ATM PIN technology, crafting the original concept for Space Mountain in Disneyland, leading innovative teams for NASA, Boeing, IBM and RCA, and was commissioned by the Reagan administration to help China’s transition to a market based economy in the 1980s. While executive teams experienced the power of StratOp for their organization, they often asked Paterson to guide them through an equivalent process for their life. Paterson responded by creating LifePlan, the premier life planning process for individuals. Over the past few decades, thousands of people have been guided through the LifePlan process to discover their unique purpose allowing them to make their greatest impact in life.
