Perhaps you have heard of the concept of “SMART” goals. There are many versions of the acronym out there. Often the “A” stands for “achievable” and the “R” for” realistic” or “reasonable”.

Career Coaching

Nine out of 10 organisations are now using coaching to help boost staff performance, despite a cut in budgets for training according to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development ’s annual survey Taking the Temperature of Coaching, which found a sharp increase in the use of coaching as a training tool.
