The AïM Program™ - Developing Life Mastery

The AïM ProgramTM is a coaching service in life mastery that resulted from countless interactions and counselling sessions with young and old, in business, social, sports or family contexts. It is based on a fundamental principle of self-awareness: "We have all the necessary skills to succeed. We only need to recognize them and apply them at the right time to increase our results"

The goal of this coaching service is to help raise your awareness so that you may integrate and internalize your acquired knowledge, expertise, skills and capabilities to produce mastery in your every day activities.

The approach focuses on becoming aware of what you already know. It will help identify ways and means to increase your results. It will help you to create a MASTERFUL LIFE.

The project lasts a maximum of six to eight weeks once you have agreed to use our coaching services to implement life mastery.

STEP #1

A free one hour fact-finding session: familiarize, evaluate, identify possibilities, seek areas of commonality, brainstorm objectives. Decide whether you want to work with this approach (coaching for life mastery).

If you believe that the method can succeed, proceed to the following steps.

(Five 2-hour sessions  ideally held within a period of seven weeks with follow-up as necessary)
