All of these are amazing things to strive for, don’t get us wrong.
During the 2022 by Design course, you will set intention for your year
Join us for
2022 BY DESIGN
An immersive Thought Design workshop experience where you’ll learn new ways of thinking,
strategize your goals for the year, and develop the plan to actually achieve them.
This will be the most empowering 6 hours of your year, we promise.
Using tools created by our experts, you’ll leave here with your year thoughtfully designed, a clear plan for the first 90 days,
and the ability to apply your new ways of thinking to Q2, 3 and 4.
You won’t just make a fancy to-do list for your year.
You’ll design it!
During the Full-Day Workshop, you will:
- Reflect on highlights, struggles and shifts of previous years
- Understand the brain science behind your behavior and thinking patterns
- Delve into your non-conscious dreams and desires
- Discover your “word of the year”
- Define your core strategies that will focus your intentions
- Strategize your quarterly goals
- Plan your monthly priorities, experiments and learning opportunities
- Create a detailed roadmap for the first 90 days [Q1] of 2022
- Explore pathways towards achieving your vision of the future
- Learn how to grow from your failure experiences
- Design 2022 to be your best year yet
Inspirational. Creative. Innovative. Invigorating. These are just some of the words that have been used to describe our space here in Rockford, Michigan. The 2022 BY DESIGN workshops will make full use of our beautiful riverfront facility, including our state-of-the-art kitchen, learning classroom, and (weather permitting) outdoor promenade.
We’re a short 15-minute drive north of Grand Rapids, with easy access, free parking and surrounded by nature.
“It was like I was really there!” A phrase we commonly hear from our virtual participants. We use a Meeting Owl Pro as our video conferencing camera and it provides an experience so real, that you will feel like you are in the same room! The camera provides a 360° view of the room and automatically pans around to focus on who’s talking with an 18-foot audio pickup radius! Join us for this course virtually if you prefer!
One of the biggest struggles we see in designing your year is accountability and follow-through.
What happens after you leave the workshop, beautifully designed plan for the year in hand, full of motivation and clarity? How do you hold yourself accountable for fulfilling your well-crafted year?
We’ve got you covered.
Throughout the year, you can attend three additional two-hour workshops at the end of each quarter in March, June and September. During these 2-hour sessions, we’ll do some reflection on how the previous quarter went, and use some of the same strategies used to plan your first 90 days, to plan the next 90. Think of this as an opportunity to check back in with yourself as the seasons change, to ensure the year you’ve designed is on track for success.
But what about in-between these workshops? We’ll send you an email at the beginning of each month, full of inspiration to get your monthly priorities, experiments and learning opportunities on your calendar. How’s that for some major accountability?
With the Full Day Workshop + Accountability, you’ll get…
- 1 Full-Day Immersive Workshop (see all the amazing benefits above)
- 3 Two-Hour Workshops (final dates and times will be determined based on workshop attendee preference and will be announced on January 30)
- 11 Monthly Inspirational and Motivational Email Check-ins (starting February 1)

Below are answers to some questions about the workshop experience, so you can be best prepared to step into this work.
Will I have to prepare anything ahead of time?
Yes. We want to spend the majority of our time together designing your 2022. Therefore, we’d like you to come prepared with some reflection of previous years. Our pre-session work will prompt you to review the past year to record milestones, accomplishments, positive happens, failures, and more.
No matter what you’re creating, having a solid foundation helps you design better. Think of this information gathering like collecting puzzle pieces. In order to get the most out of this work, you will gather your puzzle pieces to bring with you to the workshop as a starting point, and we will help flip them right-side up, and arrange them in a way that makes sense of your thinking, behavior and emotional patterns.
You will receive an email with the pre-session work 72 hours in advance of the workshop. Please set aside 2-3 hours to really dive into this – we promise it will be worth it.
What should I bring?
- Completed pre-session work
- Your 2022 Planner or Journal – purchase the Be Collected. Planner here
- Personal choice beverages and/or snacks
What resources will be available at the in-person session?
- post-it notes
- blank paper
- writeable walls
- dry-erase markers
- prepared planning tools to accompany the strategy exercises
What food and beverages will be available?
At the full day workshop, we’ll be serving breakfast and lunch prepared by our chef. We’ll also have complimentary coffee, tea, water and snacks. Please let us know of any dietary restrictions or allergies when you sign up.
What makes this different than other vision or strategic planning sessions I've been to before?
Energy in is energy out. This means that the amount of attention, focus and work you put into creating your plan for the year is what you’ll get out of it. We feel that the tools and strategies that we’ve created will not only help you design the best year of your life, but will also motivate you to make your dreams and desires a reality. Plus, with our Accountability add-on sessions, you can’t help but stay accountable to your plan.
