5 Step Goal Setting Process

With Erick Rheam

Erick Rheam is our co-host and we are talking about the 5 step goal setting process you can use to create and achieve your goals in 2020 and beyond.

On today’s episode of The Speaker Lab, Erick and I walk you through each of the five steps and we also talk about how we use these personally in our speaking careers and also here within The Speaker Lab itself.

Whether you’re listening at the start of the year or any other time you’re going to get useful and practical advice, including specific examples you can follow immediately. Join us for that and more on episode 275 of The Speaker Lab.
