The talk will discuss why most people do not set goals correctly and consequently, fail to attain them. It will provide a method of effective goal setting that I use with all my coaching clients which enables them to enjoy rapid growth in all areas of their lives.

Once they have set their goals, they will then be taken through my 7-step planning process which, if followed, guarantees that their goals will be achieved.

There will be practical exercises to in-grain this information.Take-away: They will receive the necessary tools to set their goals and will leave with a 1-page action plan for the 90-day goal which they will have established.

Here is a short clip from the last time Peter spoke at Interesesting Talks
