Goals: Finish 2019 Strong
When: Noon to 2 p.m.
Where: Chattanooga Workspace, 302 W. 6th St.
We are in the home stretch of 2019 and the question that is tapping on our life for attention is, "Where are you in your progress for your goals for this year?" In this master class, participants will do an inquiry of insight for clarity of where they are in the progress of their goals. You will learn success strategy tools and experiential exercises that will support you in creating the momentum to complete the remaining distance toward your desired success results! This workshop will help you get crystal clear on where you are now in your creative process of your goal and get crystal clear about what is your purpose and vision on what the end-result will look like once you arrive. It will help you discover the main barriers for why we fail at achieving our greatest intentions and the tools we can use to overcome our personal blocks. You will also define an accountable action plan using the "How" and the "By when" measure of your goal. And in the end, you will put your goals into action by using a mind mapping tool to define with clarity a well-executed action step plan. Are you ready to create your "game-plan" to finish 2019 Strong? Learn how to strategize, initiate, follow-through and create your momentum to cross the finish line of 2019 with success.
