The skills in the area of Habits & Self-Management deal with our ability to monitor and control our own actions and attention. Do you struggle to stay on task? Is it hard to manage distractions and interruptions? Society and technology are often at odds with us here as we have more information and communications coming at us in a constant stream. These skills help us spend more time on high value items and less time on minutiae and distractions.
This package includes 6 50-minute phone coaching sessions. We review your assessment results to find areas for improvement that will have maximum payoff. Goals are reviewed along with techniques to incorporate action steps into your weekly plan. Additional sessions can be purchased for ongoing accountability and support.
Retreats offer a chance to get away from the day-to-day routine and environment while thinking strategically about the coming months or year. Cindy works with individuals and groups to structure a time and space that fosters creativity and ingenuity and drills down to “next steps” so goals stay front and center. Retreats are available for one or multiple days as well as on-site or at a meeting location of your choice.
A great and economical option to get you planning regularly and building in steps to achieve those goals. These recorded 30-minute sessions are distributed weekly and walk you through the process to effectively build a plan for the coming week. In addition to the planning steps, an additional topic is included on each call for you to build skills and improve focus.
Here’s a simple worksheet for identifying a goal or project and breaking down all the steps involved.
