Mastering Goal Achievement: Five Power Steps

Why do so many people have a hard time achieving their goals? What pitfalls do people most often encounter when striving to reach their goals? Based on the findings of Dr. Heidi Grant Halvorson and other social scientists, these questions will be answered in this session.

  • Utilize techniques to take advantage of optimistic and pessimistic outlooks in goal achievement
  • Decide when to keep or let go of a goal

  • Being able to set the stage for shaping successful goals
