About Course

I have a little bit of an advantage in coaching that I take from my other careers: instructional design, teaching, and teacher-training. I have worked for years with teachers to help them to think about and construct goals. These goals need to follow an old and very reliable formula that comes with a simple acronym to help people remember. That acronym is, of course SMART. Now, you can run and do a Wikipedia search for SMART goals, and they do a great treatment on it … but you’ll also see there is a bit of a conflict over what exactly this five-letter acronym denotes.
Here’s where the client-coach collaboration comes in. We can invent these for ourselves! So, here’s my proposal and explanation for what the acronym should stand for. Let’s start first with a generic goal that we can turn into a SMART goal.
‘I want to lose a lot of weight!’
That sounds noble, weight loss. That’s always one of my goals! I really should get a weight coach to help out with that one. But I digress. Let’s apply SMART once we get the concept down. The acronym is found, in detail, in this course. The ER comes at the end, as a bonus!
Hope this helps, and enjoy your learning!
