Overview & Objectives

Coaching Fundamentals
Most ambitious people think they need all the answers, but they don't. Learn coaching, an underutilized skill that empowers you with empathetic listening and honest questioning.
Future Self Visualization
Zoom out and take a more holistic, long-term perspective on your life and what matters to you. Quiet your analytical mind and tap into your creative brain to access your internal resources and inner wisdom.
Odyssey Plans
The culmination of this Council: after understanding all the true, coherent, and interesting versions of yourself, we invite you to imagine multiple ways you could launch your next chapter and to sketch out those plans.
Six Lives
Success is not one-size-fits-all, and measured by a lot of factors. Clarify how you personally measure and define success for yourself through deep inquiry into six different lives and the success they represent.

Zone of Genius
Reflect on the life experiences that filled you up and led to your proudest accomplishments. Discover the genius at the center of all these different jobs, relationships, and projects.

Values & Values Hierarchy
Our values serve as a compass telling us when we might be going in a right or wrong direction. They inform our decision-making and future planning. In this session, you will identify and rank your values.

"A big part of my self actualization process came after thinking through things intentionally in a certain sequence with The Grand. The Grand helped me to see myself both from my own internal perspective and as others see me, and to have a more balanced and authentic view of not just who I am, but who I can become. In one session, we mapped out three potential lives we could live. I’m doing all of them now."

"This process is not obvious. It's not just: “Oh, I got the job.” It's: ”How can we see successes that Ali has had outside of this big goal of getting a job? We've seen so many other successes.” There's something important in that witnessing—the genuine relationships and the real support. I couldn't get that with my own friends, even though my friends are fantastic. At The Grand, we come and bring the best and most vulnerable versions of ourselves every time. I'm so happy for that."
