Something I often find with my executive coaching clients is that their goals become more tangible as we talk about them repeatedly. Today for example I was with a client for a second meeting. The goals discussion at the first meeting went pretty well and produced motivating goals. But that was not enough.
In the second meeting we talked about goals again and made one excellent improvement. We devised the strategy to make my client’s work life harmony goal more achievable. Now my client wants to earn hours to use away from work as well as income. Earning hours by delegating is the tangible way to get what she wants.
The outcome goal for my client will be more mountain biking while the progress goal [what she can do daily] will be delegating. Each time she delegates another task that she had been doing until now she will earn more hours to take her bike for a ride.
