About the Course
Goal focus is the common element that is shared by all successful people and teams.
To be successful means to achieve a worthwhile goal. Because it is impossible to achieve a goal that you never set, the most urgent step to take is to set a clear specific and valuable goal.
So, we need to become more goal focused, we need to improve our powers of communication and our abilities to gain and keep the cooperation of others, especially during tough times.
You need to be able to properly communicate the goal to all those who need to know.
So, improving your communication skills is essential.
The third part to success is the ability to give constructive criticism, and be able to correct people without upsetting them, and thus losing their cooperative spirit.
So, we need to learn how to set goals, how to communicate them to others, and how to maintain a cooperative spirit in the team, especially during tough times.
Your skill at defining goals, and gaining the cooperation of the team to help you to achieve them, is the measure of your success.
If you really want to learn some new techniques that will improve your ability to get the best from yourself and others, then you need to attend this very instructive, informative and inspiring training course.

Goal Setting, Communication and Conflict Training Course Content
Goal Setting Course - AM
How do you get the best from yourself and others?
Develop the following six major skills:
- Set Specific goals
- Communicate with greater clarity
- Organise your plans
- Handling difficult people skills
- Manage your own emotions
- Inspiring others. Emotional intelligence
Your performance is measured against your goals.
Your organisation exists to achieve its goals.
Goal focus is the major skill.
Goal focus is the art of setting on a goal and focussing on it long enough to achieve it.
Know what you want and know what other want
What do you want, and what do others want?
You need to know exactly what you want and exactly what others want. The overlap is your opportunity to do business.
The difference between a wish and a goal
Goals are not wishes
Wishes are mere flights of fancy
Goals are specific, objectively defined, numerical, achievable, realistic and optimistic.
How to set and agree on specific goals.
- Be specific
- Define your goal numerically
- Define all your key terms
- Identify the skills knowledge needed
- Identify the material resources needed
- Identify the time needed
- Ensure the deadline is reasonable and agreed
State your goals in the positive sense.
Don’t state goals in the negative sense.
A negative goal is leaves unstated what you will do, and merely states what you won’t do.
If you say, “I won’t repeat the mistakes of the past”. Then we still do not know what you are going to do. You need to state goals in the affirmative. Example, “By the end of the decade, we will put an American on the moon at return him safety”.
Avoid negative commands: Give only positive commands
Make sure that last thing they hear from you is what you DO want.
Always make the last thing they hear, before they leave, a statement about what you DO want.
The course content was comprehensive and informative. Useful tools and strategies for managing all aspects of team dynamics. Managing conflict was particularly interesting. Trainer's presentation was clear and easy to understand. Informative.
Goal Setting Course - PM
Conflict is inevitable. You are bound to get some. How you manage conflict is an important question.
Some people can be difficult to handle. They are too pushy, or too moody.
They do the wrong things.
They don’t do the right things.
Handle difficult people according to the proper principles.
The proper principles means, “According to the principles of reason.”
Protect their self-image:-
Their self-image is their ego, or pride, their self-concept.
Never attack their self-concept.
- Identify wrong actions
- Name the exact behaviour
- Clearly, state what is "wrong."
- Suggest a specific corrective action that will solve the problem
- Agree corrective actions
- Gain commitment to making the change to improve performance
- Ask for the commitment to the corrective action
- If they do not commit, then distinguish between reasons and excuses.
Distinguish reasons from excuses and have a different policy for each.
Gain commitments, to the improved action.
The moment the make a change, “Tag it”, with some positive feedback
Make proper use of well-timed thanks praise and appreciation
Practical exercises for the delegates to learn skills
The Training Method
The training method follows this general pattern - the training is very interactive and interesting:
- The trainer gives a clear explanation of the point in question with specific examples.
- Then, the delegates practice by doing an exercise with each other.
- The delegates practice by doing an exercise with the trainer.
- All points are supported with full written notes to take away.
- Delegates are asked to write down an associated action, for each point made.
(At the end of the day, we have about twenty such actions, from which the delegates choose six which are the most personally meaningful).
Note: we do not believe in placing people in any situation of embarrassment by demanding that they 'perform' in front of the whole group. So you can relax: come on this course and be at ease; ready to learn new skills!
Training course content was excellent. Lots of information pitched at the right level for me. Learned absolutely loads; some parts were slightly fast but understand that due to the amount of information it was worth getting as much in as possible. I liked the trainer's use of the book and the flip-chart throughout
