Carolyn Buck Luce on The Decade Game®


by Carolyn Buck Luce

Imagine how you would feel knowing that the next ten years will be the best decade of your life, so far.

Do you remember playing the game of Life as a child? Nothing to lose that couldn’t be recovered at the next throw of the dice. Everything to win – fame, fortune, love, and family. Hours of fun playing with others. Or was it Monopoly, or the game of Risk that gave you hours of fun with your friends and family? Why not a real game of Life? The Decade Game®.

The Decade Game® redefines a player’s job description from the formal job description that accompanies a paycheck to a new job description – – how to build the experiences, knowledge, and relationships that will guarantee the player a decade of meaning and purpose. In the Decade Game, the objective is for the player to grow to be the leader of his or her dreams, at home, at work, and in the world. And it is a multi-player game that can be played with others, including your employer, your friends, and your family.

Carolyn is the inventor of the Decade Game and has been playing The Decade Game since she was eight, reinventing herself every decade. She is living proof that the next 10 years can be the best decade of your life, so far, no matter what life throws her way. Accomplished Linguist, top student, Diplomat, Wall Street Banker, Corporate Strategist, Professor, Healthcare Futurist, Philanthropist, Talent Innovator, Executive Coach, Mother, Wife, Grandmother, Carolyn has demonstrated the benefits of playing the game of life to win, as opposed to playing not to lose. Along the way, she has coached and mentored hundreds of friends, colleagues, students, and clients of all ages on her framework for playing the decade game.

Carolyn has a book in the works, The Decade Game® – Creating a Future by Design, not Default, so that she can share the rules of the game with the world. In the meantime, Carolyn takes on a handful of remarkable women clients annually in a 6-month master class program to coach and guide them on their Decade Games.

Legacy Building

Legacy Building

Constructing a Life of Meaning and Purpose

We believe that two of the worst words in the English language are “if only.” If only I had …

People’s life stories are like company’s business models. A simple definition of a company’s business model is how it chooses to organize tangible and intangible assets in a way that creates the most meaning and impact for others, and consequently for itself as well. It is similar for your life story. You are inspired by dreams and intentions. Your story is then shaped by the choices you make that inform the experiences, knowledge and relationships that you acquire along the journey.

We have taken our experience of architecting business models for companies to help courageous leaders design and construct lives of meaning, impact and purpose in their work, their families and their world.

We have designed a framework for decision-making and action that allows you to dream boldly and invest your time and energy wisely in order to make the next decade the best decade of your life so far.

We and our partners can work with you individually and in targeted cohorts. For groups of leaders, our legacy building services include guiding Ten Year Planning Circles of selected high-performance leaders, counseling high impact teams, and advising the leadership of Women’s Network and Employee Resource Groups. We also work with select leaders to support the development of an executive’s personal brand and identity, in both the physical and digital world.
