Feedback on the Blue Sky Visioning Project
The Blue Sky Visioning Project changed my life. Here's how . . .
How could I figure it out?
Shortly thereafter, I heard about the Blue Sky Visioning Project. Taking it helped me realize that I dreamed of being a best-selling author and a national speaker. And being in a sexy, romantic relationship. One where we talked and touched, and disagreed gently.
Since then, I've been taking tiny steps toward my personal destiny. I'm the happiest I've been in my life.
If you'd like to identify your own dreams, I heartily recommend the Blue Sky Visioning course to you.

A huge personal thank you to you for the superb blue sky course. The class was so well designed and facilitated. It has already made a difference to me in helping me to articulate some very ambitious goals which I would not have dared to express without this encouragement. Your own style is so thoughtful, disciplined and yet with much heart and compassion for all the students. I hope to meet you one of these days. Thanks so very much!

The Blue Sky Visioning Project is an outstanding class! You can't miss it if you want to get any place with your coaching business. You will be given a very cool process to help you figure out how to establish and accomplish your most important goals.
Our own class is still meeting 8 years later. We meet at least 4 times a year to catch up and support each other with current and long range goals.
We have written books, become best selling authors, secured important speaking engagements, won large six-figure consulting engagements, been presented various awards, been hired for important jobs or contracts, changed our way of living, moved to second homes part of the year, successfully gone through cancer, surgeries, divorces, marriages, mother's deaths, grandchildren's births and the usual and customary goals and BHAG's as a successful Blue Skiers.

Thanks to the Blue Sky Visioning Project MasterClass taught by Ben Dean in 2002, I have achieved goals that I thought were impossible for me. Included in my original five goals were "having a full time coaching practice" and "owning a vacation house in Vermont". I achieved those and, in fact, all the goals on my original list and have used the Blue Sky method to continue to broaden and deepen my life ever since. If I could only take one MentorCoach class, Blue Sky would be the one. It's made a big positive difference in my life.

I wanted to let you know how sorry I am that I missed the last few
phone ins. I had a nasty accident and did lots of damage to my left
hand so was in hospital for a while. I'm now without a left thumb but
on the way to recovery.
The Blue Sky Visioning Project was perhaps the best course (of many excellent ones) I've taken from Mentor Coach! Since goal-setting is at the heart of coaching, this course in goal-setting underpins everything we do as coaches. The instructors were truly inspiring, encouraging us to reach high in developing our own personal 5-year plans. In this way, they modeled how we can support our clients as they dare to set challenging goals. Beyond just learning "how to," taking this course was also exhilarating!

It is so easy for me to get bogged down in checking off my daily
to dos that I can lose sight of our bigger aims. Through
class presentations and exercises, Blue Sky truly inspired me to think
carefully about how I want to live this one precious life of mine,
as Mary Oliver put it. I walked away with a laminated page of 10 deeply
important goals and a support group to spur me on. Among those goals
already achieved: published my first book, got certified as a coach,
started a wellness plan, began a spiritual group in Argentina, widened
my ties with colleagues, and deepened my relationship with my husband.
More are in progress! What was so great about doing this in community
was hearing others let go their bargain basement dreams
in favor of premium dreams full of passion. As passion for
living is contagious, I highly recommend this class taught by two super
One of the best decisions I have made was to take the
Blue Sky Visioning Project. I recommend it highly. I received major
benefits from taking this class.

Blue Sky, which I took twice, was very helpful in gaining clarity on what I want for my life. The tools and techniques to keep my focus and move forward have all been worth taking this program twice to really get them down. I made great and lasting connections in Blue Sky. Ben and Anne are a skillful teachers and leaders. If you want to move your life to the next level, I recommend taking Blue Sky [maybe do it twice :)].
