MyCoachCompass.com was developed by a team of top Field Leaders - with guidance and support from Dr. Wayne Andersen and Dan Bell - to provide a platform for Coaches and Leaders to access information about upcoming Field-led events, Coach training, other helpful resources, and a simple system for growth through duplication. All Coaches and Leaders who share our mission, vision, and cultural values are welcome to leverage the available resources within this site.
In the Fall of 2005, this quaint cabin at the Sundance Resort in Utah became the birthplace of Optavia Leadership. It was here where Dr. A and Dan Bell – with guidance from author Robert Fritz – gathered the top leaders in the Field at that time. This group was tasked with defining and memorializing the cultural values and ways of working upon which this organization would follow. In that tradition, we are committed to upholding these same values today as the guiding principles by which we conduct our business and interact with others.

  • We are committed and accountable to the Mission of bringing health and well-being to the world
  • We are committed to supporting our Unified System and events
  • We are committed to our Cultural Standards and ways of working
  • We are committed to protecting the Company and acting with integrity
  • We are committed to growing our Transactional Coaching skills
  • We are committed to personal growth and development by adopting The Six Habits of Transformational Leadership:
  1. We lead from the future. We act in the now.
  2. We take responsiblity. We play above the line.
  3. We seek growth. We embrace the obstacles as the way.
  4. We connect authentically. We activate trust.
  5. We awaken potential. We transform masterfully.
  6. We deliver extraordinary results. We serve to better mankind.
  • We are committed to being open and curious about innovation, change, and challenges
  • We are committed to partnering with like-minded people who empower positive changes in their families, their friends, their communities, our nation, and the world
If you value and believe what we believe, and want to work with like-minded Leaders to move this Mission forward, we invite you to partner with us to make a huge impact.
To bring health and well-being to millions of people around the world
To empower you and thousands more to become Leaders who make a difference in lives of others and “do well by doing good”
