“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.” –Tal Ben-Shahar

Life brings us questions, an inevitable consequence of planned and unplanned transitions, surprising opportunities, challenges and predictable transitions. Regardless of one’s age, career path or unique circumstances, these turning points provide rare occasions to step out of life for a moment and pause to gain a new view. The most important work we too often pass by is building a chapter in life that is satisfying and meaningful. Hudson’s LifeForward program leverages over 30 years of researching and working with professions traversing transitions and changes over the course of life. Our approach uses our core models to first examine where you are today, then explore the many facets of your life before designing a plan for the chapter ahead integrating your purpose with passions in order to build experiments and possibilities for the road ahead.


The LifeForward experience spans four days. The approach is experientially focused on examining all aspects of one’s life today and tomorrow. The program format is multi-faceted combining whole group micro-modules with small group exploration and individual experiments and reflection. Throughout the four days the work is guided by a group of master coaches with years of experience working in this domain.

The first step begins with preparation in advance of the program. All participants take time to complete a personal assessment and reflection setting the stage for what unfolds in the four-day program.

The heart of the LifeForward experience occurs during the four-day onsite program. The approach is multi-faceted, including micro- modules in the large group, small group discussions, experiential exercises and reflection time. The experience is facilitated by a group of seasoned master coaches able to support and encourage new thinking throughout the session.

Participants leave the four-day session with a carefully crafted plan for the chapter ahead focused on the area’s most important to each. A part of the plan centers around practices that will help participants fully step into the chapter ahead and post-program there are two opportunities to come together in small groups facilitated by the coach-facilitators to leverage support and gain momentum.


We learn best when using an integrated approach, allowing participants to enjoy short micro-modules and then apply that learning in a variety of experiential exercises. We know as well that a rhythm from large group to smaller group to individual reflective time provides opportunities to learn from one another and on one’s own.

LifeForward is an incredibly well-honed program with seasoned coach leaders ready to facilitate a profound four-day experience focused on where we’ve been and how to deliberately craft our own paths forward.  I left feeling energized with a concrete and inspired plan that provides me with clarity both in the short term and for the rest of my life.  I also left with a new group of lifelong friends and professional connections that will be with me as I embark on whatever comes next in my career and in my personal life!
