When does the next program start?
- The next workshop starts on the weekend of 1/2 April. It ends 28 May.
What’s the time commitment?
- The workshop is an 8 week program.
- Class time is 3 hours each weekend + time for preparation and producing a weekly assignment. The first cohort of GameChangers said it was 3-5 hours a week of additional individual work: reading, writing, contemplating. They said it was both challenging and rewarding emotional work.
- After the workshop is completed you will be part of the Gamechangers GO community. You can expect to spend 3-5 hours per month on an ongoing basis engaging with the community.
Who is this for? Am I the right fit?
GameChangers GO is for people looking for a greater sense of purpose, wisdom and integrity in your life. It’s for people who want to change the game and want more accountability and support. We find that typically it’s for mid- to late- career professionals who are really good at what they do and are looking to inject more meaning and purpose into their lives. We’re happy to discuss this on the phone if you want to learn more about the curriculum and the community.
Can’t I do this with a book?
You could probably get content from a book. But as you know, there’s much greater growth and learning when you do this sort of work with others. You’ll get feedback and support and be challenged in a way that’s impossible to achieve by yourself.
Who’s in this group? What do they know?
People like you: people interested in doing the inner work to become effective gamechangers. Our first cohort had people interested in global entrepreneurial education, training better parents, and making a more caring and ethical legal system. It’s an eclectic group of people who want to live life with more wisdom, purpose, and integrity.
What if I don’t like the people in the group?
The people that most challenge you are sometimes the people you learn from most. But honestly, part of the inner work is to grow into a community, despite your initial impressions or judgments.
How is this different than other online courses, which I feel didn’t really change things?
Online courses have problems due to low commitment and accountability. We’ve constructed this program to be the opposite, with accountability, cost and support for you to do what you really want to do.
Are there guarantees that I’ll actually change?
No, unfortunately. But we have a hard time imagining that if you do the work and are committed to doing the emotional labor that the course requires that you won’t change.
What happens after the eight weeks? Is there ongoing support after?
Yes! The whole idea is that GameChangers GO more than an 8 week course that ends; it’s a network of people who support each other and hold each other accountable to the change we want to make. We have structures and meetings that keep the process going.
Is there coaching? Where’s the expertise?
We’ll have weekly office hours with coaches and weekly huddles with other participants to deepen connections with each other and with the material.
Is it only available for a limited time?
This course is live, so yes. If the timing for this session does not work for you, look for the next session running June – July 2017.
How long before I start to notice a difference?
Participants from GameChangers GO 1 saw change in themselves pretty quickly once they started doing the work. It will be uncomfortable at times, but that’s great! Personal change is sometimes uncomfortable. But it’s ultimately rewarding and satisfying.
Can I download the audios?
No, the course is live.
Can I share this with my husband/wife/significant other?
Yes, you can share your personal growth and progress. However, what others share with you is in confidence and you should expect that what you share will be kept that same way.
Can I do it on my phone?
Yes, if you have a smartphone (we use the social technologies Zoom and Slack). A laptop or desktop computer will be easier for finishing assignments.
Will it work for me?
We think so! We don’t guarantee your internal change, but like all transformation, your willingness to do the work the most important thing for change.
Do I have to do it every day?
No, there’s a significant amount of work and the deadlines are regular, but spaced out. There’s plenty of time for reflection and to control your schedule.
What happens if I get behind?
It’s important that you stay on schedule and it’s part of the discipline that we’re trying to build. With this type of group work, you can catch up, but you’ll miss the value of working simultaneously with others. The effects of the group work and care for each other is significant.
Will I get to talk to other people on the course?
Yes! That is the point of creating a live community of people. The relationships you make are the support and accountability that will help you change the game.
What can I do? I’m not on Facebook and I have no intention of doing it.
- This will not be on Facebook. You will be using some professional social technologies like Slack and Zoom. If you haven’t used them before, this is a great learning opportunity for using tools that can accelerate connection in your work environment.
How much does it cost?
Tuition is USD3000.
Can I get a refund?
No, once you sign up, we don’t offer refunds. We’ve found that paying is part of the commitment to others and to your own growth.
