MOVE! Goal Achievement Program

Take a step towards your dream by learning the MOVE! goal achievement method online via Zoom. The program has worked for all types of individuals, including but not limited to: NFL quarterbacks, retirees, therapists, Olympians, writers, entrepreneurs, teachers, college coaches, chefs, executives, people living with disabilities, and doctors.

Following the introductory session, you will set a five-week goal. This simple, flexible, and fun method can be replicated to achieve any long-term (dream) goal. You will also learn the latest theories that validate the strategies: theories of excellence, habit, willpower and resilience, positive mindsets, and transitions.

Videos, articles, and structured discussions related to goal achievement will be the focus of breakout groups. Sessions will include interviews with those who’ve used MOVE! for athletic, personal, or professional goals as varied as learning to swim to writing a business plan to redesigning a kitchen. Participants will use calendars to plan their goals and reflect on progress.
