Whether you’re feeling one of these or all of them at once, this workshop is for you!
 
During this dynamic group experience, you will get clear and specific about your top 3 goals for the year ahead and gain powerful, personal insights alongside other goal-setters, including:
 
-          What is a goal and do you really need one?
-          What do you want, do you really, really want?
-          What to do & what you’re willing to do to achieve your goal
-          Are your SMART goals really smart – for you?
-          The canary in the coal mine: the rarity of commitment
-          The power of course-correction
-          Why “collaboration is the new black” and how there’s absolutely an “I’ in “Team”
-          Who is on your goal team
-          Rejection, Re-Negotiation & Reward
-          The technique that allows you to tap into the hidden inner resource anytime to shift into your optimal, goal-achieving mode.
 
BONUS: Each person who completes the workshop will receive a complimentary e-book copy of “The Resolution Code:  How One Decision Can Transform Your Goals from Fizzled to On Fire This Year “ by Gillian Roberts
 
Time-permitting, you may have a chance to sit in the hot-seat and have Gillian live-coach you on your goal plan AND identify a hidden gift you have using one of her special superpowers…
 
Here’s a unique opportunity to set yourself up for a new beginning you’ll be proud to look back on next new year’s eve. See you January 3rd!
