Instructor comments:

Do you have difficulties setting goals that never come to fruition or are time-consuming to accomplish? Or, are you wanting to fine-tune your goal-setting skills to be more productive? If your answer is "yes," then this class is for you!

Over 4 weekly sessions, you will practice various elements of the results-oriented goal-setting process implementing skills toward successful goal achievement within a group or for yourself, and learn innovative approaches to overcome obstacles that get in the way. In the end, you will complete an outside project of your choice creating a step-by-step model toward achieving realistic goals including the target, review dates, and contingency and follow-up plans!

All the learning materials for this course are provided in the weekly instructor notes, links to articles and websites, and from the PCC Library online.

This class starts later in the term, so be sure to mark your calendar!
