A Useful Guide to Planning Your Success

Author: Michael Beale
ISBN: 978-1-906460-84-6


This useful guide is for managers and professionals who want a stripped-down approach to optimal performance within both their organisational and personal life. It is based on over ten years performance coaching and senior level mentoring.

Goal setting now has an established research history. With modern findings, we are able to explore the particular, often surprising, nuances of planning which can have a pivotal effect on your future success. This useful guide incorporates the results of these findings.

This useful guide will provide you with a framework around which to plan for the future in a way that empowers you and those working with you. It's designed to complement any approach that you are currently using.

It's worth remembering that if we don't design our own futures, others are likely to do it for us; and through no fault of their own, they may not do it to our best advantage.

1. A quiz for you

3. Knowing and appreciating where you are now?

4. Milestones - creating a simple plan

5. Choosing, rehearsing and taking the first small step

6. State - being at your best

How to find the right mood for the right time

7. Building resilience

Minimising stress and maintaining health through easy adjustments in lifestyle

8. Your support network
