Have a team with ambitious targets for 2013? You want to set them up for success and sense they're struggling with fear or maybe even overwhelm.
We recently led the "Planning to Build Confidence" workshop to great acclaim for a sales team with stretch goals for 2013.
Using the best of cutting-edge research in Positive Psychology, this interactive and fun (!) workshop had participants create a plan to step outside their comfort zone, develop confidence, and implement their beliefs.
