Here is the session about goal setting, make sure you have downloaded the tools before you watch the session
There are four tools to help you set your goals. First you need to know where your starting point. Use the Sunflower of Life(c) to do a quick audit of the different areas of your life, then use the Responsible Organisation Charter(c) to identify where you are in your business. You can find this tool on the front page of the members section together with a video explaining it in detail.
This should have prompted some ideas for goals so use the Leading Edge Goal Setter(c) to record your goals and first steps. For more detail and a plan for the year split into quarters use the Right Track Gameplan(c). The business skills session explains in more detail the science behind setting and achieving goals.
