| Why does the topic of New Year’s resolutions often elicit an eye roll? Maybe it feels cliché or maybe it’s your personal history with it or maybe it’s the national track record–an 80% failure rate by February. But what if we shifted our perspective around goal-setting from zeroing in on one particular outcome at one particular time of year to focusing on character growth and becoming a more committed being? A person who consistently follows through, sticks to their word, and has the power to make things happen in the world. Coaches Rosanna Tomiuk, Joseph Thompson, Randy Poon and Chris North turn the traditional idea of goal-setting upside-down, challenging listeners to rethink their approach as they discuss setting goals based on passion and inspiration, rather than on fixing problems; why engaged detachment is so effective; the trap of holding happiness hostage; and the benefit of community for accountability. They send you off into 2022 with specific goal-setting tactics that have made a powerful difference for them and their clients. Thanks for listening and Happy New Year!
