Destiny is not a matter of chance; it is a matter of choice. It is not a thing to be waited for, it is a thing to be achieved.
Personal Effectiveness Seminar®
Step One in our Core Seminar Series
What It Is
The Personal Effectiveness Seminar is the first step in our Core Seminar Series. It is designed for people who want more out of life and are curious about how to get it. It is a unique opportunity to consciously grow as a human being and expand into a new vision of yourself.
Wherever you happen to be—emotionally, mentally, physically and spiritually—the Personal Effectiveness Seminar will meet you there and help you get to where you want to be.
The four days of the Personal Effectiveness Seminar build to create a profound and practical learning experience—a complete immersion in an environment that supports personal development, transformation, breakthroughs and permanent shifts in consciousness and the skills to keep it going.
"In my 25 year career, I've attended Dale Carnegie, sought the giant within from Anthony Robbins, waged war on my career with Tom Hopkins, and been checked out from the neck up by Zig Ziglar. None of them came close to the positive results I achieved from taking Wings' Personal Effectiveness Seminar.
The Personal Effectiveness Seminar has led me to my own personal and professional power and cleared the path to my own unending resources. I not only recommend it, but encourage participation to everyone."

Participant's ages range from 18 years old and beyond. One woman who participated at age 81 sent us a card after attending the Personal Effectiveness Seminar. It had a photo of an elderly man throwing a bouquet of flowers into the sky with a look of sheer delight on his face, inside she wrote, "The Personal Effectiveness Seminar gave me my life back."
Each seminar we hold is as different, unique and powerful as the participants who come together to create it. Participants are amazed at the end of the four days how much commonality and connection they share with one another.

What's a day in the PES like?
Beginning at 9:00 a.m., your day is filled with educational lectures, experience, practice, dialogue and laughter. Typical seminar groups number from 15 to 50. Dress is casual and comfortable.
Seminar days are full and focused, time flies by. This is a time to free yourself from your daily responsibilities and focus on your growth and learning. Come rested and ready to be fully present for the seminar. You get more than your money's worth! You will be given a notebook and handouts are provided for all the material covered. Much of the time you are seated in chairs for lectures or activities. At other times you are engaged in interactive processes. You have a "working lunch," a "working dinner" and breaks throughout each day.
You may hear things you've "always known", in new ways, and you have plenty of "Aha!" moments. Peals of laughter, tears of release, and time for thoughtful reflection are all steps on the path of your personal development. The seminar day ends about 9:00 p.m., and there is homework.
WINGS seminars are designed for people who want more from their lives and are curious about how to get it. The seminars are a unique opportunity to consciously grow as a human being and expand into a new vision of yourself. Each day in the seminar is designed to support you on your journey of self-discovery and life-changing results.
Below are the answers to your most frequently asked questions. If after reading them you have more, please feel free to contact a Wings Enrollment Coordinator at 800.697.0040 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I've actually done a seminar. Why should I do the Personal Effectiveness Seminar?The Personal Effectiveness Seminar is designed for people who are deeply committed to their own personal development. It is truly a personal development "bootcamp." Participants who have already done personal growth work report being amazed by how much more they benefited from the experience than they had expected or had experienced before. People find WINGS' seminars to be qualitatively different from most others — deeper, more insightful, with a lasting impact.
"For over 15 years, I have been in and out of many seminars, spiritual groups, "satsangs" and meditations. It wasn't until PES that I actually am able to bring the experience of being awake to life."–Heidi Mason
If I do the the Personal Effectiveness Seminar, how long will the results last?Personal development is a rigorous and rewarding path of expanding consciousness. Our goal is to create life-long learners, who know there is no greater art than living an extraordinary life. Over the past 25 years, we've received thousands of stories from grads about the amazing results they've created in their lives as they practice the skills taught in the Personal Effectiveness Seminar. Their lives continue to grow, creating more and more of what they truly want.
"Now at 23, ten years after my first seminar, I am clear that the work of Wings—the deepening and development of human consciousness—is perhaps the most important work that can be done in service to the world. Each time I attend a seminar, I am amazed by the magnificence of each and every individual—the beauty, and aliveness, and potential that exists in everyone without exception. Wings provides not only the tools, but the lived experience of what it feels like to be truly alive, and it holds open an enticing door for the participants—a door that, if we choose to walk through it, leads to the active manifestation of the world we all dream of."–David Larson, UCLA Medical School Student
I'm concerned about what might happen to my closest relationships if I change?The power of communicating effectively with others is life-changing. People move from feeling stuck in repetitive patterns to enjoying new ways of connecting with others. When we take responsibility for our own happiness, we let the people in our lives off the hook. We see and appreciate them as themselves, rather than a reflection of what we want them to be.
"Now—every night I dream of the new paintings I am to create and in the morning, I am full of excited anticipation to start painting. I do not know what day of the week it is because every day is a Saturday, full of hope and wonder. Then(before the PES)—I could barely pull myself out of bed, too heavy the weight of problems and drama. Health problems, depression, anxiety. Now—I travel the US photographing wildlife and landscapes for my work. I have sold over 5000 paintings all over the world and am licensed with companies who produce my works which sell world wide. Then—I could not remember how to breathe. Now—I breathe in every moment. Then-My marriage was a mess. Now—I love like I never thought I could.
I became whole after attending the Personal Effectiveness Seminar. I could see the behaviors that made me disabled and became aware of them enough that day by day, more light came through. Every day I receive emails from folks explaining how my paintings make them laugh, cry, smile. I touch people because Wings helped me through my mud to find deep clear flowing water. I had it in me all the time, but Wings touched that spot that released the potential in my life. I was taught to love myself regardless of my past or my parents and from that place of love came miracles beyond my belief."–Diane Whitehead, Artist
When is the best time to take the Personal Effectiveness Seminar?Now is always the best time to step into your fullness. No matter where you are in your life, the Personal Effectiveness Seminar will be of tremendous assistance to help you create the life you dream of and become the person you want to be right now. The tools and skills you acquire in The Personal Effectiveness Seminar give you the confidence to boldly determine the course your life will take today and the rest of your life. Imagine what you'll be doing a year from now, if you begin today.
"For myself, the experience of The Personal Effectiveness Seminar opened waysides to a renewed passion for living. I was able to mend my relationship with my husband, (now of twenty eight years), my children, (both boys now grown men with rich lives of their own), and embrace my vocation, teaching, when I was about to quit. I still feel that Wings was my impetus of escape from a sidetrack of despair"- Diana Reynolds, Retired Teacher?
