What do you do each month to capture your learning and what you’ve achieved? One of the favorite things I have enjoyed doing since launching the Coaching Business Builder Workbook and Planner last summer was holding virtual month end planning sessions. These are a short paid program, which takes you through a series of reflective prompts and opportunities for capturing your learning over the last few months, and what you are planning for the month ahead.
While one hour might seem hard to find in your schedule, the benefit of having a focus for the next month is invaluable. Connect this with capturing learning (what worked well and what didn’t) from earlier months, makes it a very powerful process.
Month end planning sessions are usually held on the last working day of each month from 6-7 am ET. Yes, it’s early, AND have you read the literature on what successful people do before breakfast? I’ve moved into my 2nd year of starting work at 5 am ET. I am not sure how much of the creative projects which fuel me, I would be able to achieve without this time.
If you are not an early bird, the good news is that this month's Month End Planning session will be held on Friday March 29th from 3 - 4 pm Eastern/New York on zoom. Those joining me for this paid one-hour one-off program will benefit from getting a chance to do a Quarterly Review as well. More info and registration at the top of this page.
We are going to be exploring questions related to your achievements, learning and plans for the next month and quarter.
If this is a topic of interest to you, be sure to check out the Facebook Live I did earlier today which is now posted at the PlanDoTrack Facebook Page, as well as this article "Create a Pause for Clients via Quarterly Reviews or Retreats, I wrote for the Coaching Tools. You can read that article here at their site.
Hope that you will join me for the month end planning session later this month! You can sign up here.
