Goal Setting for a successful year

It’s the start of the year, and the energy of this time is fresh and exciting, full with promise of a fantastic year ahead.

And then we reflect back and realise that we didn’t get to achieve all that we hoped we would last year… so why set goals or New Year Resolutions this year? They don’t work, right?  Only if they are not well formed and thought through.

Session Overview:

This coaching session has the potential to turn all your past unsuccessful goal setting processes around.

I, as your experience coach, will facilitate you (either face-to-face or via Skype/phone) through a useful process that will help you set such well formed goals that you’ll be half way there to achieving them already!


Develop a strategy for your goals for the year aheadGetting clear on what you want and knowing how to measure these achievements in a way that helps your brain and subconscious mind set you up for success, should be a non-negotiable step in your success strategy for 2017.

This session will help you focus your thinking and develop your strategy for the year. How useful would that be to help you reach your goals?

You have all the resources you need to achieve your goals, you just need to be clear on what they are and have decided to do what’s necessary to make it happen in 2017.

What a client says:

“Inner Coaching provided a great structure for me to articulate my goals and follow up to achieve them. Telana was an organized, efficient and readily available coach who went out of her way to help me achieve the goals I set for myself.” – DD

You will learn

In this 2 hour, one-on-one session (on the phone or in person) you will leave:

  1. Knowing how to set well formed goals
  2. Being clear on what you want to achieve in 2016 and what to focus on
  3. With a written, realistic set of outcomes to work towards
  4. Knowing your strategy, with the steps and stages to take to achieve your goals
  5. With your first set of actions to get you going


Please note: This session is aimed at people who want to achieve big things in 2017. They are the top achievers, the trail blazers, the intentional people who want to live a life with purpose and on purpose . This session is NOT for people who don’t set goals, who just go where life takes them, or who are unsure of what they want to achieve in 2017.

What a client says:

“Hi Telana
Many thanks for today’s session and for all the information you attached for me which I have found really insightful and will definitely take the time to review it all well. Thank you for the suggestions…  So excited about all we achieved this morning. The outcomes far exceed my expectations which were a vague awareness that I needed help :)”
– Lynn Chalmers, Head Service Coordination, Standard Bank South Africa

Length of Session

The session is a 2 hour session, and will be during office hours (Monday to Friday 08:00 to 18:00 and on Saturdays via skype only), at a time that suits both you and me, your Coach.

The session can be done via skype to save on travel time. Or it can be face-to-face at my office in Fourways or in Sandton, Johannesburg.


We will meet face to face, or on the phone or via skype.

This is a private session with me where we explore what you want to achieve this year, and come up with clear measurables that will show you that you have achieved your goals when you do your reflecting at the end of the year. We’ll also explore what steps you need to take, what resources you will need, and what your first set of actions will be. I’ll then email you all the info so you will have your goals written up in a well formed structure that you can refer to throughout the year.

About the Coach

Our Coach, Telana Simpson

I’m Telana Simpson, and I’m a Personal Coach who specialises in communicating and relating. I’ve trained extensively in the cognitive behavioural sciences of NLP and Neuro-Semantics, and I have a psychology degree and Meta-Coach and Neuro-Semantic Trainer qualifications. I’ve been coaching clients since 2004 and from my experience with my many clients, I have seen over and over again the power of the first Outcome Session of the Coaching programmes I offer. And so have packaged that session into this Strategy Session. I am committed to helping my clients live with no regrets by enabling them to reach their goals and express themselves, unleashing more of their potential. I speak in the media and at conferences, host an online TV show and write as often as I can.
