Goal setting workshops can be most valuable if you are ready. Timing is so important in learning. Perhaps a certain word or sound bite from the workshop will inspire you to get ready. But being ready moves you forward in a way that is not easily measured. It can be compared to self-directed learning. We learn when we want to learn. We learn when we are ready to learn. But if a person’s mind is open to new information, self-reflection, and deep thinking learning can be accelerated.
