Introducing an Effective Approach to Goal Setting

Goal setting is one of the most commonly talked about, yet often misunderstood tools in the coach’s toolbox. In this video, the second of four resources on goal setting, Trish Jackman and Matthew Bird introduce and demystify the four stages of effective goal setting

Where does goal setting fit into your sessions? Consider the four stages that make up an effective approach to goal setting and how you can use this knowledge in your setting and context.


Q. Do you and your participants have an agreed and shared mental model of performance?

Q How will you create your physical activity/sport profile to start the conversation with your participants?

Q. Take a moment to consider two or three priorities to bring to the conversation.

Q. How will you plan and prepare for the goal reinforcement stage? Consider how you can include recognition and reward in your coaching sessions. Celebrating the moments that matter can help grow your connection and encourage commitment from your participants and, most importantly, is fun!
