Personal Transformation Offerings
OnCourse International has a range of offerings for committed individuals, couples, and families who seek more authentic relationships, clarity on their mission, and a deeper engagement with life.
Whole Life Checkup
Almost all personal transformation engagements begin with a Whole Life Checkup – an extensive consultation with either Jim Warner or an OnCourse Associate.
Prior to the consultation you’ll be asked to complete a confidential online survey on your life situation, and perhaps some more specialized Assessments . The Whole Life Checkup may be conducted either in person or by telephone. During the consultation Jim or an OnCourse Associate will get a feel for your background and the life situation that led you to contact us. We’ll ask questions about the patterns we see in your life, what you want to change, and the level of risk and commitment you are willing to make to explore and transform your situation.
At OnCourse Transformation Retreats individuals or couples meet with Jim Warner or an OnCourse Principal, and at least one other OnCourse Associate, in a confidential environment to explore and transform their lives. The goals and flow of the Life Transformation Retreat are tailored for each individual or couple based on the Whole Life Checkup. Many clients view these retreats as “well care”: an opportunity to take stock and proactively plan the next stage of life. Other clients are dealing with a pressing issue or dilemma that is draining their energy. Their primary goal is both relief from their pain and a breakthrough to a new way of living.
Life Planning Support
Our Life Planning services help you develop an explicit, measurable roadmap for the next stage of your life. The scope of the plan is determined in advance by the client and the OnCourse resources, and the duration ranges from twelve months to a decade. Participants at Transformation Retreats develop a first-draft, go-forward plan based on the transformations experienced during that Retreat. Life Planning Support expand this initial plan to a “Whole Life” level, weaving in accountability and encouragement systems for grounding and sustaining positive life transformation.
Ongoing Support Programs
At the Transformation Retreat individuals and couples gain insight and achieve transformations that are typically not experienced in long periods (often years) of therapy or executive coaching. However, our work is not a quick fix, the transformations are often temporary, and it’s easy to regress into old behaviors and patterns. As such, we encourage clients to commit to a minimum of three months of ongoing coaching (typically by telephone) after the Retreat. In addition to the coaching we will connect you with fellow explorers who have faced issues similar to yours, and are committed to sustained change in their lives.
