The MasterPlan Acceleration Program

“To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been
their finest hour.”

Winston Churchill

Unfortunately, many professionals are ignored, miss out on promotions, or feel they are on the wrong path and not living up to their potential. This results in feeling frustrated and under-appreciated. We have tested strategy tools and blueprints that allow our clients to stop being ignored, get promoted or start their own business, and find a greater career and personal fulfillment, and a higher level of contribution.

The MasterPlan Coaching Program is a group-mentoring program where we work personally with you to help you develop and start implementing YOUR MasterPlan. This coaching program is designed to help clients with the guided implementation of our most popular Insider program, the MasterPlan program. In the MasterPlan program, we cover the critical skills and strategies we developed for our most successful executive coaching clients and give you a blueprint to significantly alter your career.

Imagine the power of getting personalized guidance and coaching aligned with your unique situation, as you are developing your MasterPlan and start guided implementation.

We are putting together a small cohort of group coaching clients. This program makes coaching with us accessible to a broader group of clients.

As one client recently said:

If Michael had been my mentor from high school, I would be a President by now. Share on X

What makes this program different?

How did we train Andrew to go from senior manager to senior equity partner in 3 years? How did we help Fei outperform her peers at a major PE firm? How did we coach CEOs of multi-billion dollar companies? How do we simultaneously manage so many studies to such high quality of insights? Why do we take on such punishing work?

In the span of few years, on top of everything else we are doing as part of FIRMSconsulting’s core priorities, we also have co-founded an electric car start-up in China, a luxury brands business in Europe, a news business, and we also co-own a precious metals mine.

These ventures are core to our mission of teaching business strategy in a compelling manner. Because we meticulously track the development, tactics, strategies, meetings, finances, and trials and tribulations of every single business, to produce detailed training programs.

I get asked this question a lot: How do we achieve so much and to such high levels of quality while remaining so energized? This program answers these questions. We will help you build YOUR master plan.

We designed this program to completely reinvent and revive your career. This is a program about doing big things. Things that you would not believe were possible.

We have condensed all the key lessons from our most popular programs and, based on member feedback, provide more advanced tools and techniques.

Productivity is not about how much you can do to a high level of quality. That is a myth that harms your career. To be successful in life you should not build a career around your competitive advantages in life. That may lead to very average career. Too much planning may paralyze you. Too much education may paralyze you.

You need to know when is enough and move forward.

You do not need a fancy degree, or any degree, to be successful in business. You just need to be in a career or pursuing an idea. Success comes from doing a few things consistently well.

Tatiana had a Wharton MBA and struggled to get her business moving until we completely changed the way she managed herself, then her team, and finally her business.

This coaching program will be hard but if you stick to it your results should be no different from that of the clients above.

This program explains how we keep our performance high and how we help clients keep their performance high, and it is based on us having personally advised CEOs of multi-billion dollar companies.

Maintaining a high level of performance is NOT about simply having the problem-solving skills of a McKinsey, BCG et al. partner. It is about MORE than communication and leadership skills. If you want to operate at our level, and the level of our most successful executive clients like Andrew, Richard, Fei, Chetan, and Tatiana, and CEO clients, then you should try to get in and be a part of this rare opportunity to not only watch The MasterPlan Program but to personally work with creators of the MasterPlan program and get individualized guidance and coaching applicable to your personal situation.

It can literally change your life.

Objectives of the program:

  • More clarity on the Massive Transformation Purpose (MTP aka vision)
  • Develop a MasterPlan/the critical path/blueprint for your career and life
  • Start a guided implementation of your MasterPlan with our coaching
  • 6 months (VIP)/3 months (Elite) challenge towards the result YOU want to accomplish, with milestones and accountability
  • Identifying your assets (competitive advantage vs. comparative advantage)
  • Help you understand and break down limiting beliefs, limited mindsets, old patterns, and bad habits that may be holding you stuck
  • Dealing with personal circumstances and how to have a balance between career/business growth and personal life/taking care of your health/family/community
  • Getting results
  • A support system and an opportunity to establish a life-long network, and potentially friendships with other accomplished professionals in a deliberately small select peer group

It’s an opportunity for an elevation in your position, getting consistent guidance and support on your journey, gaining clarity on the vision, learning from other accomplished professionals.

This program was co-designed with some of our closest clients. Here are paraphrased descriptions of this program from our clients that you may find helpful. However, please don’t allow those descriptions to limit what this program can do for you …

  • “It’s a group of people that want to create some very large change in their life. They either do know what it is or don’t know what it is. They don’t want to waste tons of time figuring out things without guidance and mentorship. There’s a bunch of learnings that are out there and coaching that can help them avoid making the wrong moves for them. And then once they are somewhat clear on where they want to head towards, of course, there’ll be nuances they go about learning, helping them avoid the pitfalls that often they would have fallen into along that change.”
  • “It’s not going to be a program for too junior of a person… Looking at our career as if it’s four quarters of a sports game. And starting at the age 25 to 35, that’s the first quarter. And age 35 to 45, that’s the second quarter. 45 is halftime… and 55 is the end of the 3rd quarter and 65 is game over. Now, that sounds a little harsh, but just looking over 10-year spans, this is probably a program for somebody who’s approaching that halftime. Still has a third quarter, fourth quarter. How we can use the experience gained from the first half of the game to be able to really create a high magnitude impact in the 3rd and 4th quarters of the game.”
  • “A way to get structure, encouragement, and action towards your big life’s goals.”
  • “Learn and apply MasterPlan Program tools to launch something big in the next decade. You’ll identify your purpose; pick your unique 10 filters to evaluate every opportunity; identify your role models; and make big progress in your Phase 1. Plus you’ll get support from FC partners and motivated, mid-career Insiders who are also launching something big.”

THANK YOU to our FC Insiders for Your Feedback!
