Hi The coach zone,

Welcome to this weeks Get COACHd on Friday.

I don’t know about you but 2 bank holidays in May is normally enough but three just makes it a strange month. We have 3 slightly longer weekends – which hopefully may see the sun showing its face. We may even have an opportunity for a party this weekend.

I have been thinking about goals and continuing in my slightly abstract way, want to share 3 specific methods that I have found useful in the past. Take them, or ditch them – consider them as a freebie.

  1. The Reverse-Engineering Model: This unconventional approach involves working backward from the desired outcome to develop a comprehensive strategy for achieving a goal. By visualizing the end result, you can identify the critical steps and milestones required to get there.
  2. The Creative Constraints Model: This model involves intentionally imposing limitations or constraints on a project to spark creativity and innovation. By challenging the conventional methods and resources, you can push yourself and your team to find novel solutions and approaches.
  3. The Gamification Model: This model involves incorporating elements of game design (e.g., competition, rewards, points, levels) into non-gaming contexts to increase engagement, motivation, and performance. Slightly left field I know but as an example. Consider you are working with someone in the marketing sphere. Invite them to transform their marketing goals into a game or competition, where team members can earn points, badges, or other rewards for achieving milestones or tasks related to the goal. Sit back and watch the fund start.
