Open Master's Beginnings Signup

“Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to Great Places! You're off and away! You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.”
— Dr. Seuss, "Oh, the Places You'll Go!"

Welcome to the Open Master's Community! 

By completing this step, you're signing up to take the first steps to launching the ambitious personal project of designing and completing your own self-designed and self-declared Open Master's program.

We're so excited that you're bold enough and cool enough to want to do this, and to join the small community of peers who are going to be the wind at your back for this journey.

Let's Get Started

As soon as you complete your signup, we'll send you the Open Master's Launch Kit and also set up your first coaching session with Alan, David, Sarah, or Axle, our Open Master's coaches.

We'll have up to three of these sessions with you, as needed, as you complete the Launch Phase of your DIY Open Master's program, including helping support you as you:

  • Research, design, and plan your curriculum, strategy, and timeline for completion;
  • Take initial steps to build a strong informal learning community around you to support you through this journey, including developing relationships with both peers and mentors;
  • Develop your strategy for sharing your plans and progress throughout your Open Master's journey, which might include creating a personal website or publishing it through other media;
  • Finally, organize your official Declaration Ceremony, where you will unveil your plans to a broader community and ask for their accountability and support on your journey.

Share the Adventure

We also highly recommend connecting with the broader Open Master's community at an upcoming workshop, retreat, or online community call, or just by connecting with individuals directly. We will keep you informed about opportunities for doing this. We also highly recommend forming a small group of your own with other new members, or working with a partner for this part of the journey.

Before completing the signup, you are acknowledging that you accept the community expectations and to do your best to uphold them. We're excited to see the places you will grow!
