"In times of change learners inherit the earth while the learned find themselves beautifully equiped to deal with a world that no longer exists." - Eric Hofer

What began in 2013 as an informal career planning, transformation and mentoring program for former college athletes seeking assistance for the next steps in their lives has since evolved into The Fifth Quarter Project... an educational movement addressing the individual nature of how each of us learn and what we need to learn for our individual success. 

If you include yourself among the numerous people drastically underprepared to successfully play the game you're now playing…

You are not alone! 

NOW though there are game-changing options to assist you! 

If you have wrestled with the concept of overall SUCCESS...

You have company!

Success is a confusing concept meaning different things to us all and...until each individual defines it for themselves the confusion will only get worse!

No need to feel abandoned in your quest any longer!

 

If the playing field along your journey from where you are to where you want to be seems inequitable at times...

...whether from lack of economic resources, or ability to produce numeric grades in the classroom, or access to mentors etc...

You need not feel isolated or unsupported for another minute!

The Fifth Quarter Project has provided significant assistance to many people in your shoes…

The CHALLENGE and foundation of everything we do within The Fifth Quarter Project’s playbook is focused on YOU…

YOU affirming to yourself the desire and will to reclaim levels of confidence and personal identity that may have gotten lost somewhere along the road

 

You are the magic - Toni Morrison

"The aim of education is the knowledge not of facts but of values" - William Ralph Inge

 

The “playbook” for The Fifth Quarter Project has been constructed from the 5+ decades of experiences, knowledge and relational capital of author, speaker, headhunter, career development expert and coach Barry Kleiman (with an assist from Coach Dale Brown ...more on that in a bit)

 

Building The Fifth Quarter Project's community...

...placing all of these things under one roof has become his personal obligation/passion project to those motivated and willing to take on the CHALLENGE of personal commitment!

"Those who did it have an obligation to teach it" - Brian Kurtz

The programs we’ve designed, along with the collaborators we’ve recruited are dedicated to:

"A critic is someone who never actually goes to the battle, yet who afterwards comes out shooting the wounded." - Tyne Daly

  • Gently nudge and remind those with enough self-trust and personal motivation to also have a single purpose...

Have a purpose!

Optimize who you are! Leave the naysayers, skeptics and doubters on the roadside as you proceed...

"Principles are ways of successfully dealing with reality to get what you want out of life." - Ray Dalio

Without a definitive, well-reasoned plan along with a set of skills, tools, and principles to assist you in executing the plan, obstacles will likely seem insurmountable. (Make no mistake...there will be obstacles however...

By participating in and completing The Fifth Quarter Project's Challenge you will neutralize barriers swiftly and permanently

The Fifth Quarter Project’s playbook includes a set of tools to:

  • Help you discover your unique you and provide a roadmap for YOU to be YOU (a bold promise we’ve proven 
  • Equip you with an appropriately heightened awareness of your current reality (...true competitors want to know the real score)
  • Help you ask yourself the right questions (...the right answers can only come from the right questions!)
  • Assist you to clearly understand how best to quantify your individual priorities (...so that you’ll never doubt the direction in which you’re going.)
  • Effectively discover defining “success” on your own terms (...so the definition of others won’t discourage your quest)
  • Reveal your personal integrity (...trusting yourself provides maximum upside to your success)
  • Learn the leverage of, and reason to strive for “excellence”. (...if every action you take produces a quality result your name and reputation will be synonymous with excellence)
  • Reveal the potency and power of goals (“What you get by achieving your goals is not nearly as important as what you become by achieving your goals” - Zig Ziglar)
  • Discover the competitive advantage you’ll possess if you understand and build the best practices of “marketing” into all that you do. (...each one of us must answer the question “Why you?”...can you?)
  • Unearth your own particular genius for conducting “meaningful” conversations (...meaningful conversations lead to meaningful relationships)
  • Learn exactly why “networking doesn’t work nearly as well as “connecting” and just how to “connect” with people (...remember, making it meaningful is vital!)
  • Become beyond proficient in effective writing (...another secret for “connecting”)
  • Quickly and easily excel in the leverage of LinkedIn (...it provides you the most powerful tool to facilitate “connecting” on the planet)
  • Roll together all of the above to make cover letter and resume writing easy (...so you can avoid the numbing drudgery of doubt)
  • Escape the anxiety of interviewing (...no anxiety = quiet confidence making everything you do so much more potent!)
  • Learn the absolute critical nature of “following up”
  • Learn why and how having a mentor in your life is as important as almost any other relationship you have

*NOTE FROM BARRY

Somewhere back around 2010 or 2011 (by virtue of coaching two of his grandchildren) I had the opportunity to meet, get to know, get mentored by and get inspired by Coach Dale Brown. I remain in email dialogue with him during the year to this day BUT back then he challenged me to write a book. Having never thought before to take on such a challenge or even that I should my reply was:
“Coach...I’ll write a book if you write the Foreword”
Little did I know it would take him a half-second to say “deal’!
The book took me years to write...in fact when I called Coach to ask if he was still willing to keep his promise he asked “Barry...how long ago was that?” My sheepish reply was “five years” but of course, being the man he is the Foreword for How the Truth Will Set You and Your Career Free was written.

I mentioned Coach also “mentored” and inspired me.
He taught me that great players are those that make those around them better.
That comment was in many ways the inspiration for The Fifth Quarter Project
My hoop game was basically ordinary...my coaching skills reasonable...being great at something had to come by making others better

I hope if you take anything from this program and it helps your path from where you are to where you want to be more clear and more manageable you pay a special “thanks” to Coach Brown...I alone can’t thank him enough.
