Wise Goals - Applying the science of Goals and Motivation

-   By James Stevenson (MSc, IEA) - EMCC Accredited Coaching Psychologist and Positive Psychologist

Are you looking to support your team, group, or employees in setting goals that really work? 

Maybe your a leader that wants your team to be motivated and self-reliant, a teacher supporting your students, or a student looking to set study goals. Perhaps you work in healthcare and want to support patients, or your looking to set some career goals. 


People come to wise goals for all kinds of reasons. You're probably excited by the psychology of goals and related concepts... the psychological models, the theories...

Goals, when set effectively, are strongly connected with achievement, productivity, and engagement in work, improved relationships, and good health and wellbeing.

I'm James the owner of Wise Goals. I'm a coaching psychologist and positive psychologist (what is positive psychology?).
