The Process of Mastery

Scott’s signature teaching protocol

As a business leader and personal development expert with 20+ years of experience in Fortune 500 sales, Scott Holman understands what it takes to master a challenge.

Through his experiences (and failures!), Scott has identified the requirements for building a successful life–both in business and at home. His mission is to help driven business leaders and aspiring professionals to become the leaders they are meant to be.

He does this through his signature teaching protocol, The Process of Mastery.

The Process is composed of 3 elements:


Consuming information in an intentional way.


Processing what we’ve learned by putting it into action.



Sharing our knowledge with others.


Scott doesn’t believe in “just” speaking to people to educate them. He believes that using his Process of Mastery fills a major gap in the learning process of many people–taking learned knowledge from theoretical to practical through actionable steps.

Over the years, Scott has narrowed his focus of expertise to 13 major topics, inspired by Ben Franklin’s famous 13 Virtues.

Scott believes that these 13 leadership domains are the foundation of cultivating leadership abilities and building a successful life.

Scott will design a customized program for your organization based on your needs or you can choose from his proven predesigned programs.
