Drive Business and Your Career - Leveraging Effective Goal Setting & Planning Seminar. In this half day workshop we will focus on two components 1) Career vision and Goal setting for focused and targeted advancement 2) Goal setting and planning for improved results for project based events. In this workshop, you will acquire a specific 7 step plan for visioning, conceiving, developing and writing clear, concise, achievable goals. This powerful and proven goal setting process will assist you in becoming as successful as you set your target at. Topics covered will include the SMART goal approach, the benefits of setting goals, identifying and overcoming obstacles, and creating achievable steps on the road to success.

Successful project completion and rapid career advancement both depend on your ability to turn dreams and visions into tangible milestones and completed objectives.  Defining exactly what will be achieved is key and then quickly moving beyond wishful thinking into clearly defined specific targets.  With this in place you are then able to map a specific course of action – that will take you to the destination you are choosing.

This workshop is for Engineers and Geoscientists at any level looking to create a more focused plan not only for their career but with project based environments.  This includes leaders who want to get the best performance out of their teams as well as anyone who is part of a team and looking to improve performance by learning and applying goal setting concepts to projects of all sizes and types.  A successful project begins with a clearly defined target.  Having everyone on the same page working towards the same goal is ultimately what this workshop is about.
Benefits of the workshop:
  • Ensure the entire organization is aligned and working towards the same end in mind
  • Meet and exceed project timelines by up to 25%
  • Reduce wasted resources and effort
  • Grow both top and bottom line revenues by as much as 40%
  • Increase client satisfaction and results, improved customer retention
On completion, course participants will have:
  • Created a Vision both for the project based and career focused perspectives
  • Identified benefits, obstacles/solutions, and specific steps in the goal setting process
  • Selected appropriate goal(s) and complete the goal setting process
  • Be able to describe all elements of the “SMART” goal setting process
  • Developed an individual goal-setting plan
  • Identified techniques for overcoming obstacles
  • Created a step-by-step model for achieving goals including the target and review dates
