Are you wanting to make sure you hit your 2021 goals?

In 2020 I interviewed my clients to see why they stick with my month-to-month coaching program for an average of 12 months.

Number one reason: outside perspective.

Number two reason: accountability.

The third reason and beyond was a variation of spiritual growth, intentionality at home, leadership development, and others.

See, there is not a shortage of information out there for leaders in how to grow.

The key is, discussing which is the right next step and the encouragement and challenge to make sure those steps are taken.

If you need both an outside perspective and accountability in 2021.
