Vision Day, your personal strategic planning retreat, sets the stage for a fantastic year

Too often, people wander around in a fog of dissatisfaction, or rush from crisis to crisis, never getting around to what most matters, whether that's family, a long-delayed dream, cutting back on work hours or charging full steam ahead toward business growth.

You need two ingredients to renew your direction in life, and Vision Day provides both:
1. A setting that helps you slow down and inspires reflection, and
2. Guidance from coaches who help you draw out buried wishes and plot a feasible course for your future.

You couldn't find a more conducive setting for a private retreat than the island of Martha's Vineyard. Home-away-from-home for countless celebrities, politicians, scholars and media people, it's also the year-round residence for artists, writers, consultants and people who enjoy a slower, quieter pace of life.

For your Vision Day, this contemplative stretch of land surrounded by ocean affords you the leisure and luxury of listening to yourself. Look ahead twelve months to see what you'd like to be enjoying then. Discover how to clear obstacles, bottlenecks and self-sabotage away from your path.

Debra Phillips and Robert Berkley, executive coaches with decades of expertise and experience, serve as guides throughout your Vision Day. You (and your business or life partner, if you decide to come together) are their one and only focus for the entire day.

"During my first Vision Day several years ago, I discovered that I could be much happier, by aligning what I do every day with what is valuable to me.

"The power of that first Vision Day really hit me when I went back for my second Vision Day and we reviewed what I had accomplished.

"I was now working out regularly, spending more quality time with my wife, managing my money better, reading for pleasure, practicing patience and listening, spending less time in my car, and hiring people who could help me focus on what I enjoy in business.

"I have had several Vision Days since, and every time I have been surprised at how much I accomplished."
