This seminar will teach you proven, step-by-step methods for goal-setting, project management and improving your organizational skills.
There is a special component to SMART goals most goal-setting workshops and seminars don't teach. Believe it or not, this often means the difference between success and failure when it comes to actually accomplishing the goals you've set for yourself.
With our Effective Goal-Setting and Planning Skills training course, you'll not only discover this critical component, but dozens of other tools, tips, strategies, fresh ideas and more — all geared toward setting and accomplishing goals easily and painlessly. From setting individual goals to working within the framework of a team environment, we'll help you get past the internal roadblocks and external issues that have hindered you in the past.
