Remember the energy and focus (and adrenaline) you had when setting New Year's Resolutions - when working your last day before vacation? (Good) The packing to make the plane?? (Great!) . . . Having unexpected company (in-laws!!) at your house (maybe good, but a little anxiety) . . . Or even filing your taxes? (Not-so-good)
What if you applied that same energy to achieving your goals? What if you compressed your time horizon to create an ambitious goal, fully dive into achieving it, hit a wall or even a few stumbling stones, adapt the goal and then harness all that energy and motivation to catapult your business onto a whole new level of productivity and productivity!
Bridge the GAP in your success: The Goal Achievement Partners is a collaboration with The Upper Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce and Pinellas County SCORE. GAP brings together a select group of business owners for an 10-week series.
That’s the thinking behind Brian Moran and Michael Lennington’s book (and – literally and figuratively – movement) – the “12 Week Year.” Most companies close 40% of their sales in the 4th quarter – meaning what’s left is 3 quarters of 20% growth – all with the same products, the same talent and probably, the same prospects. What if you compressed your year into 12 weeks (vs. dealing with 40 ‘weaks’ of low mojo)?
This perspective – along with a heavy dose of peer accountability – is the ‘secret sauce’ to the Goal Achievement Partners. Learn the best “goal hacks” in this energetic and highly participative cohort.
While GAP is new to Upper Tampa Bay, it's been a huge success (for 4 years!) at the St. Pete Greenhouse. The sessions are facilitated by Sheila Neisler, owner of Catalyst Tampa Bay and SCORE Presenter. Sheila developed this program 7 years ago, working in concert with a local bank and the University of North Carolina – Asheville. ?
The Goal Achievement Program is a 60-minute weekly meeting which takes place over 8 weeks. It is specifically designed to help create and nurture an individual’s and small group’s discipline that delivers results. Data has shown that past cohorts had 68% more focused on achieving their personally set goals and feel 90% more confident in their ability to achieve them.
