Writing for Results – Goal Setting

Written goals help you to set your priorities, identify opportunities and recognize areas for improvement. Without well-defined goals, we tend to focus on too many small things, procrastinate, experience stress and generally be less productive. This learning experience shows you how to write clear and actionable goals.

This course is full of activities enabling all participants to practice creating and revising their own goals and can be customized for unique business groups or applications within an organization through an advance review of writing samples. It can be delivered in various formats (virtual, face-to-face, “lunch and learn, etc. ). Facilitators deliver the course using the MeetingSphere collaboration software platform which enables a “hands on” approach ensures a highly interactive and engaging learning experience.
