A Few Golden Nuggets of Advice on Goal Setting

Keep your participants on track to reach their chosen destination with these quick tips

  1. Break big goals into smaller chunks, but not too many! 
  2. Connect people who have similar goals in and around your session. 
  3. Encourage people to revisit goals regularly. Know when people are likely to achieve their goal/s and talk to them about what is the next thing they would like to work towards. 
  4. Discuss when the most likely relapse points could be, as these can interrupt progression towards goals. Progression is not always a linear path, so accept bad days or weeks can be the norm.
  5. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, making mistakes is a vital aspect of the learning process. 
  6. Be proactive in noticing, recognising and rewarding people meeting their goals.
