Roundtable Review: Goal Setting

On Wednesday, September 22nd, we held our Brick & Wonder Roundtable on the topic of Goal Setting.

Like the checklists that pilots use to keep planes in the air, the simple act of setting and working towards goals belies the complex function it performs. 

Often, emotional, behavioral and operational obstacles get in the way of our ability to set and achieve goals, and to evaluate why we have or haven’t met them in allocated time. 

Yet, the simple act of setting challenging goals and rising to meet them is enormously powerful. 

In this Roundtable our co-leaders facilitated Brick & Wonder members digging into their business goals for the year ahead, and problem solving some of the challenges members face with setting and accomplishing high-level goals.
