Why I wrote Mastering the Art of Goals Coaching
Coaching is all about goals and outcomes. Guiding your clients to go from where they are now to where they want to be.
But however excited your new client may be about moving forward, sometimes there are challenges in helping them to choose their goals and defining the best a path to reach them. There may also be unexpressed issues, such as past failures that they are still holding on to or even goals they have achieved but not acknowledged.
Unfortunately these issues can often be hidden and rarely expressed. So they act as invisible traps that trip your client in creating a new future.
The good news is that with my extensive experiences as a coach, helping clients achieve their goals, I have had a unique opportunity to study and research the factors that are vital for successful goals coaching. This prompted me to refine these principles into a proven goal planning system in my book Mastering the Art of Goals Coaching to share with other coaches.
Coaching is an art, not a science. And Wendy’s new book helps you master the many-layered art of coaching clients around their goals!
She covers all the bases including what makes a SMART Goal, how to stay motivated, avoiding “should” goals, reasons why clients get stuck and what to do about it—and much, much more. There are lots of great tips, tools and ideas to try out, plus Wendy shares plenty of helpful examples throughout. This is a great resource for coaches and anyone working with people on their goals!

Here's a taster of what's in Mastering The Art Of Goals Coaching.
1. How to take the "fail" out of failed goals and celebrate unacknowledged goals.
The experience of a failed goal, and even an achieved goal that hasn't been recognised, can lead to cynicism about goals and a sense of failure and frustration.
In Chapter 3 of Mastering the Art of Goals Coaching (acknowledged by readers as one of the most important chapters in the book) I show you how to coach to turn around any negative energy around past failed goals into positives and completed experiences.
“This is a solution focused book on goals coaching. I loved Wendy's emphasises on the importance of the clean-up strategy in Chapter 3 "Taking the fail out of failed goals".
As a busy person, I appreciated this laser read, which was easy to navigate, with a colourful layout, inspirational quotes, case studies and a conversational tone throughout. Wendy’s book is a vibrant must read for life coaches”. Dawn Campbell, AFC, Business Director, IAPC&M (International Authority for Professional Coaches and Mentors.
2. Why Goals should be SMART!
This classic and proven way of validating a goal for power and authenticity is often overlooked yet is so important. SMART goals are goals that are strong, specific, realistic, achievable and with a time frame. My version is SMARTEY goals - guess what the E and Y stand for.
When you read my explanations in Chapter 4 - What's So Smart About Smart Goals, you'll really appreciate how this goal setting model can so vital for the successful outcome of the goal.
"Wendy's points on forgiving past mistakes, SMARTEY goals, synergy, and facing saboteurs in meeting goals spoke to me deeply. I will be consulting this book as my blue-print for goal-setting. Thank you Wendy for this powerful little book".
