These will help you to think about the goals you really want to achieve and explore the following questions:

  • How do you define goal setting?
  • Why do goals matter?
  • How can we ensure goals are more likely to be successfully achieved?
  • What kinds of goals are more likely to motivate us to achieve them?

Whether modest or ambitious, at work or at home, the importance of goal setting is inestimable. What better way to express this value, than in the wisdom of this quote:

If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes. Andrew Carnegie

I am designing a new Management Development programme for my company and your Goal Setting guide has really helped.

I like the way you introduced material I haven’t seen before (SHARP action) & the tools to apply the learning. The price represents really good value for money and I will be checking out more of your material over the coming months.
