Fully Customisable Training Course Material: Description

“If you don’t set goals for yourself,
you may be doomed to work to achieve the goals of someone else.”

Popular Proverb

We are all on a quest to find out our ultimate goals and purpose in life and ways to achieve these goals. While some of us find our life goals and objectives and even exceed our wildest dreams and expectations, others struggle to find their objective in life and end up feeling confused and frustrated. Understanding your desires and being able to set goals to get you to said desires is the difference between successful people and others. So what is the secret?

Successful people are often determined, focused and persistent in going after what they want. Famous studies illustrate that goal setting, autosuggestion and correct formulation of goals can significantly boost productivity and quality of life. Knowing goals also helps leaders to share them with their teams so everyone knows where they are heading.

This course helps delegates systematically explore goal setting on low-level day-to-day objectives as well as on a grander scale on life mission statements, career goals and long-terms goals. This course is not just about setting goals, it is also about using effective techniques to achieve them.

Sessions are designed to help delegates explore goal setting from many angles, using associations, visual techniques, roles, mind maps and so on. Delegates also participate in exercises on goal formulation to learn about the best ways to express their goals and therefore increase their chances of achieving them.

The course also contains numerous guidelines and exercises on how to self-coach and get immersed in goal finding by engineering the environment. Delegates learn how to avoid procrastination and explore critical techniques on productivity and achieving success.

The course is packed with individual and group exercises to allow delegates examine their goals on their own as well as with the help of others. Comprehensive trainer script is provided so you can guide the delegates through these exercises, encourage discussions and provide assignments for them for after-course activity.

The Philosophy Behind Goal Setting Training Course

While goal setting is personal and individualised, there is a lot to be learned from successful people who are good at finding out what they want, set goals and systematically achieve them. This course has been designed with both aspects of goal setting in mind. It contains case studies of famous people so delegates can see what it means to set good goals and pursue them. In addition, interactive exercises are designed to facilitate brainstorming, goal exploration and goal sharing so that delegates can get inspired by other people’s goals. This also allows delegates to see if they set their goals wrongly and what they can do to improve them to increase their chances of achieving them.

Goal Setting Quote

The course is structured to present goal setting in a very systematic approach. It is not just about how to set a goal; it is also about finding what goals to set. These two approaches should go hand in hand and form a process that can be applied in life.

Setting up mission statements and goals can take time and it also requires self-reflection and analysis. Many exercises included in the course are ideal for after-course assignments. Delegates can use the process they learned during the course and spend more time to fully explore their desires and formulate them into useful goals.
