Yesterday I delivered a workshop for Suffolk Chamber on the subject of success planning for next year.
This is not as simple as it seems and I only had 2 hours. I rarely do powerpoint presentations for my workshops, preferring to find out first what everyone in the room wants to achieve for the session and then adapting the tools and delivery accordingly. It can even change as the morning goes on, so that I ensure I give what each person needs as an individual as well as a group.
When the delegates are very receptive to Neuro linguistic programming tools, as they were yesterday, then the workshops can be outstanding for all of us involved. And so it was in this workshop.
The group were diverse, intelligent, inquisitive, co-operative and I loved every minute of it. There was a lot to take in but the process was embedded in a template for goal setting which I will summarise here:
Know what you want – what will you see, hear and feel as if it was already happening
Understand your ‘Why’ and what your motivations are. Make sure they are big enough.
Write it all down
What’s your starting point, what has already taken place towards this goal?
What are the barriers? – sometimes we need to be someone a little bit different from before in order to achieve, or it could be that we need some extra training, resource, time management.
Who can help and where is the support structure
Visualisation – use it to see, hear and feel that goal, every day and use positive language
Chunk down the bigger parts of the action to smaller parts – do an action plan
What’s the very first step – take it immediately after writing everything down.
Kaizen – Do something every day towards it, however small
This is it, in it’s simplest form – if you’d like to know more or would like me to deliver this for you in house – call me or email me
You won’t regret it!
