Our goal is to create a space where action-oriented people invested in positive work can participate without price being an obstacle.
In the spirit of encouraging value exchange while also honoring the resources required to run these workshops, we require an up-front registration fee to participate.
However, you decide what you will pay. There are no pricing tiers and no barters, although we would be happy to provide suggested payments if requested. All registrants will be treated equally.
In my 15 years of helping groups reach peak performance, I’ve noticed that many collaboration challenges — from lack of trust to poor communication — have a deceptively simple root cause: a lack of alignment around a clear and specific set of goals. Addressing this root cause often has a dramatic impact on a team’s performance.
Aligning around goals and success is hard, but achievable with persistence and practice. In this highly interactive, online, peer coaching workshop, I’ll introduce a simple tool: the Goals + Success Spectrum. We’ll practice using it together, and we’ll give each other feedback (which will be a great way to get to know each other as well)! You will walk away with stronger muscles for setting effective goals and a powerful tool you can continue to use afterward.
This online peer coaching workshop will consist of two weekly 90-minute Zoom sessions. Each session will consist of practice, peer feedback, and coaching. There will also be an hour of homework for each session.
Participating will help you develop skills around:
- Defining good, meaningful, specific targets around success
- Aligning groups around success
- Using the success spectrum for assessment and learning
Developing the above skills will help you act more strategically, learn more quickly, and work together more effectively. You will also have the opportunity to build relationships with other practitioners like yourself.
What Past Participants Have Said
In some ways, it was so simple and so beautiful. It wasn’t super fancy. It was just super effective.
I just loved the spectrum concept for goal setting. It just worked for me. I love that Eugene explained just enough to get a good understanding, and then we practiced. The way you ran the workshop is a great model for every workshop.
I rarely enjoy online trainings. This online training was fantastic. You did a great job, it was engaging, the breakout groups kept it going, and you were so patient with everyone using the technology.
I so appreciate Eugene’s generosity in presenting this and sharing it widely! It’s wonderful to share in community in this way, and the tool itself provides a snappy, simple, yet robust approach to deepening alignment around goal-setting.
