We follow a five step process for implementing The Dream Manager Program in organizations organization.
Session One – Your Essential Purpose
In this introductory session, participants learn about the structure of the Program and discuss their specific hopes and expectations. To provide the foundation for the Program, the participants are invited to expand their list of dreams and review the various learning opportunities that are used throughout the Program. The Dream Manager provides each participant with a Program guide, copy of The Rhythm of Life, and dream book. The participant and Dream Manager discuss how to make the most of the Program and affirm the confidentiality pledge that is part of their relationship.
Session Two – The Architecture of Dreams
Participants learn how to develop specific and measurable action plans to achieve their dreams in this session. The Dream Manager challenges each participant to refine his or her target dream action plans and equips each participant with a framework to achieve dreams on their dream list. To set the stage for the future sessions, participants identify five target dreams to achieve so that the Dream Manager can provide regular accountability throughout the Program.
Session Three – Money and Your Dreams, Part I
Because each dream has a financial component and because so many participants select target dreams from the financial area, session three begins a two-part look at the financial area and each participant’s financial habits. This session explores the genesis of each participant’s feelings toward money and provides a quick diagnostic look at the participant’s financial reality. The main take-home activity is for each participant to create or refine their personal budget.
Session Four – Money and Your Dreams, Part II
Continuing the focus on the financial area from session 3, this session stretches participants to consider what it would take for them to secure financial freedom and challenges them to consider how much things really cost – in terms of both dollars and time of their life. To provide a baseline for future comparison, participants complete a personal net worth calculation as part of their take-home.
Session Five – The Genius of Personality
Using the Myers-Briggs personality inventory as a discussion tool, participants identify their type and explore how their type impacts their work, relationships, and energy. Participants review and keep a one-page overview of their type that they can use to look for ways in which attributes of their type emerge in their life.
Session Six – Time and Energy
This session provides each participant with an opportunity to look at how they spend their time and how they manage their energy. By completing a 24-hour time inventory, participants can better identify how they spend their time and look for activities to eliminate, reduce, or replace in an effort to increase their energy. Discussion also challenges participants to identify the people, places, and activities that flood or drain their life with energy.
Session Seven – Physical Mastery
An exploration of diet, sleep, and exercise habits helps each participant identify ways in which he or she can become the-best-version-of-himself in this session. Participants identify at least one new habit that relates to the physical area and are encouraged to focus on that habit as a take-home activity.
Session Eight – Emotional Mastery
Tailoring Matthew Kelly’s framework from The Seven Levels of Intimacy to the goals of The Dream Manager Program, this session helps individuals improve their relationships. The Dream Manager ® and participants examine The Seven Levels of Intimacy model and discuss connections to actual relationships in each level.
Session Nine – Intellectual Mastery
While many people do not feel that they are intellectual, this session affirms that each of us does have an intellectual component. This session highlights the Program’s goal of helping each person become a continuous learner.
Session Ten – Spiritual Mastery
This session explores how participants can nurture and grow in spirituality – whatever that might look like for each participant. Specifically, this session focuses on ways that we can better understand who we are and what our connection to the larger world is. For some participants, religion or a particular faith practice is shared as a way in which they explore this area. For other participants, these pursuits are not mentioned or brought up. In keeping with the participant-focused approach of the Program, The Dream Manager follows the direction that the participant sets in this session. After exploring spiritual dreams for each participant, and how to grow in spirituality, the session concludes with a look at how spiritual disciplines can help create self-possession and, ultimately, freedom.
Session Eleven – Professional Mastery
Connecting the role that the professional area plays in our overall pursuit to become-the-best-version-of-ourselves, participants explore professional dreams for their past, present, and future in this session. The Dream Manager helps participants develop specific and measurable action plans to achieve certain target dreams that are important to each participant in his or her professional life.
Session Twelve – Your Character is Your Destiny
As a way to identify growth from participating in the Program, session 12 begins with an inventory of ways in which each participant’s life is different than in comparison to when they started the Program. With the understanding that virtue is the ultimate organizing principle for us as humans, the Dream Manager ® and participants explore the role that virtue plays in his or her life. Participants look for ways to grow in virtue and develop their character. The session concludes with a look ahead to year two of the Program and the specific areas that participants would like to focus on in the upcoming sessions.
