Coaching Series: Advancing Toward Your Dreams & Goals: Exerc

Google Tech Talks January, 31 2008 ABSTRACT Advancing toward your dreams and goals is an essential part of personal satisfaction, leadership and career development, transitioning to a new role/location, performance improvement, and dealing with crises. This fast-paced, hands-on session will cover a variety of unique and fun exercises and practices. You will learn the importance of life balance and ways of defining and personalizing it for you; the importance of balancing short, medium, and long-term dreams and goal achievement; how to make your dreams a tangible part of your everyday life and surroundings; how to strengthen your powers of visualization; and how to build on relationships and networking to help make dreams a reality. Examples of specific exercises include dream affirmations, dream storyboarding, personal pep-talks, forgiving yourself, mining your accomplishments, cultivating a gratitude attitude, and living from greatness. These techniques can be used either with a coach or by yourself. Just as a fitness trainer helps you advance toward your physical dreams and goals, this session helps you advance toward your professional and personal dreams and goals. Google offers you generous one-on-one coaching and other coaching services, and you and your coach can apply techniques from this session that work best for you to meet your individual needs and style.
