Goals are a great way to bring your visions into reality and are important to have in times of uncertainty, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s time to leverage those adaptability skills which COVID-19 has fine-tuned and apply it to your goal setting strategy. Setting SMART goals in a fast paced and rapidly changing environment can be a challenge for both individuals and businesses due to many unknowns, uncertainties and shifting priorities. Once you understand and define strategies on how to approach uncertain times, the better you will be at achieving sets of goals. Everything can change and evolve around you, but the process of setting and managing goals remains unchanged.

  • Assessing your environment, think about and evaluate different perspectives

  • Defining and setting SMART goals – Short and long term
  • Effective goal setting process and models
  • How to break down your goals and reverse engineer your plan
  • Monitoring progress and managing change – Aligning goals with moving times


  • Individual and professionals
  • Leaders
  • Business leaders and executives
  • Entrepreneurs running business activities and projects.
