Where do you plan to run teams?

Please let us know in which neighborhood in your city you hope to run teams. If your neighborhood doesn't have a name, let us know where it is in terms of either North/South/East/West, or what known area it is near.

There are certain cities in which we have leaders so active that we are not selling kits to additional leaders in those cities or within an hour of them, since our current leaders are easily able to fill the demand for teams. Please look over this list of cities and confirm that you are a solid hour away from all of them:

California, San Francisco/Sausalito
Colorado, Boulder
New York, Manhattan and all boroughs

Please note that our Director of Success Teams in Germany handles all applications to be leaders in Germany, so email Gudrun Schwarzer at for details.

Are you located in any of these cities or less than an hour from any of them?
yes no

If you are not sure whether or not you are too close to one of the cities listed above, please describe here exactly where you are located and which city is closest to you, and we will check directly with the leader in that area to be sure you are far enough away.

Why do you want to become a Success Team Leader?
(This is not a test; we just want to learn more about you!)

How did you learn about Barbara Sher and her work?

Have you ever run any kind of group before?
(Don't worry if the answer is no—the kit is very well designed and takes you through everything step by step)

Will you be able to find some good people to be in your practice team?
(To become a registered leader you'll need to run a "Practice Success Team" of at least 4 people -- in addition to you -- to learn how to use the materials and to experience the feelings of a participant. This team can be free of charge or very inexpensive. You will be a member and go after your goals too. In the audio portion of the kit Barbara will guide the team through the 8 session training. You'll want good people in this team because it's your team and will support your efforts to fill future Success Teams.)

Are you willing to do the marketing and promotion necessary to fill your teams?
(That means running some free Idea Parties and putting announcements in your local newspaper,,, and printing up and regularly posting the flyers that come with the kit.)

Do you agree to run the teams specifically as they are designed?
(Please look over and confirm that you agree to run the teams specifically as they are designed. We need to ask for this confirmation primarily because we've had applicants who wanted to incorporate specific spiritual approaches into the Success Team program, and an important characteristic of Barbara Sher's program is that it is not connected with any religious or spiritual practice and must remain that way.)

yes no

Once we receive your answers, we'll contact you and go from there.
