PagePhoto 6D-Photo

Have you come to a point in your career where you want more? Is there a promotion or a raise you’ve set your sights on or do you want a new job? Perhaps you want to start your own business or grow the business you already have. Maybe you just want to be better at what you do without so much stress and strain. Or perhaps you simply want to find more meaning in what you do every day.

If you’re thinking that you want more but you don’t know what else you could do or how to make that leap, we’re here to help you. At Blue Pencil Institute, we envision a world in which career professionals feel fulfilled, rewarded, and enthusiastic about their work so that they live and work in their passion. And the way we believe we can achieve this vision is by applying The 6D Framework for Career Success™, the unique underlying structure that guides everything we think, say, and do.

What is The 6D Framework for Career Success™? We have discovered through our extensive work with career professionals that they can get more out of their lives and their careers -- and become tremendously more successful -- by mastering six essential skills, each one beginning with the letter D. These are to:

  • Dream Authentically
  • Dare to Think Bigger
  • Differentiate and Self-Brand
  • Develop Knowledge and Skills
  • Divulge Ethically and Tastefully, and
  • Deliver Excellence

As you will see in The 6D Framework for Career Success™ graphic below, each D in the framework is equally important in achieving career success.


More specifically, here is how we teach The 6D Framework for Career Success™ through our products, programs, and coaching:
