The Comox Valley Women’s Business Network is hosting an important workshop at their next meeting on Oct. 13.This workshop will begin where the others leave off. Setting goals can be very exciting and creative, but the hard work of breaking new ground in business can involve obstacles that stop us in our tracks.This is nothing to be ashamed of: Worthwhile goals can be hard to attain, and first attempts may not be successful. We will explore common obstacles that participants have experienced and address them.Guest speaker/facilitator Pat Allan will discuss goal attainment in general terms as an introduction and then will use the participant comments as the foundation for a customized presentation, followed by facilitated table work.Participants will walk away with concrete ideas about actions they can take immediately to move their businesses forward.Allan created her management consulting company, Tesseract Consulting Ltd., in 1995. Focusing on the people side of organizations, she has worked with more than 70 clients of all sizes throughout B.C. Allan is an experienced, entertaining speaker and facilitator.
