When John Stanko began teaching about purpose in 1991, he noticed one common tendency among those who heard. Almost everyone had no problem seeing someone else's purpose, but many had trouble seeing their own. This was true for a number of reasons. First, purpose is second-nature to people, and probably to you. You are so accustomed to who you are and what you do that you don't think you, or your purpose are special. You may be looking beyond who you are to whom God never intended for you to be in search of purpose.
Second, if you are like most people, you probably find it hard to talk about yourself. You were taught to be humble or that it's not polite. Finally, we have heard people say over the years, "I think this may be my purpose," or "I am pretty sure that this is what I was created to do." What's the answer to these obstacles to purpose of false humility, apprehension and hesitation? The answer is a purpose coach and that is where John Stanko can assist you on your PurposeQuest.
Since 1991, John has developed material to go along with his talks and books, resources not only to help people talk about purpose but also to define in clear, simple terms. Since 2001, John has sat with more than 2,000 people all over the world in one-on-one purpose sessions. He has gone on to coach hundreds and some of their stories are included on the testimonial page of this site.
Isn’t this the kind of purpose coach that you need and have been looking for? If so, then study the programs below and choose one that is right for you and your budget. You won't find anyone better in the world at helping you on purpose than John Stanko through PurposeQuest.
Personal One-on-One PurposeQuest Coaching Session
John Stanko has successfully used the profiles from the Institute for Motivational Living (IML) for 15 years and has made them an important part of his purpose tools. When you sign up for a one-on-one session, PurposeQuest will send you a set of three profiles (the DISC, Values and TEAMS profiles) to complete. When you return the results, you will then receive a 55-page personalized report that will serve as the basis for your one-on-one with John. John makes every effort to debrief your results in person, but even if it is by phone, you will find the 90-minute session with John a life-changing experience as many already have.
