Participants meet on Thursday evenings for 3 hours, 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM
for 10 weeks at Irvine Presbyterian Church. Between classroom sessions
students and their coach meet outside the classroom for an additional 2
to 3 hours, at a time and place they select. In these “team” meetings
students receive feedback on assignments including, case studies, white
papers, proposals for organizations, research findings and take part in
structured brainstorming exercises.
A long-term benefit of the course is that most teams continue to meet on
a monthly basis after the course has completed. In fact several teams have
continued to meet monthly over the last four years. In effect, they have
become “Boards of Advisers” for their members.
Team assignments are based on geographic location. There are usually
north, central and south Orange County teams. At the beginning of the
course team members and coaches decide where and when they will
meet during the week following each class.
The course includes a 220-page E-book manual and all supplemental
materials. Throughout the course the instructor and coaches will suggest
books and articles to go more in-depth on topics and strategies presented
during the course.

who are success oriented, not just job oriented
