Meaning and Purpose (Goal Achievement Series - Session 9) (Pre-Recorded)

Pre-Recorded Seminar

Goal Achievement Series

Our patients and clients cannot accomplish anything without the principles of Goal Achievement.

This concept also applies to everyone, and it is, therefore, an invaluable tool to have.

This is the ninth and final session in the 9-Session Goal Achievement Series


Please join us, learn tools to enhance your practice, grow, and continue to make a difference.

This Goal Achievement Series includes all topics that are related to clinicians in all aspects of our lives. The ultimate goal is for all of us to get tools in an easy and fast way, that we can use so we can continue to contribute as much as possible.


At the end of each seminar in this series, you will:

  1. Learn as an ongoing process to identify and clarify what your goals are.
  2. Have a deeper understanding on what has been holding you back from starting or moving forward with your goals.
  3. Gain the tools necessary to keep yourself focused and motivated on achieving your goals, including how to manage obstacles that may come up.
  4. The ability to use the strategies and techniques discussed in this series toward personal and professional goals that you have.


Join us for a 9-Week Goal Achievement Series

There are NO CEUs attached to it.

This course is intended only for clinicians who have goals and are ready to live into them.
