The Intelligent Outcome™

Have you ever set a goal that you didn’t achieve, or achieved a goal that you didn’t really want? The problem isn’t you. It’s your goal-setting system. The Intelligent Outcome™ goes beyond the old S.M.A.R.T. goals model to help you or your coaching clients create objectives that can — and will — be achieved.
