C.J. McClanahan said setting a goal is easy, but setting it in a way that encourages and motivates the goal setter is difficult. He has a solution.
His fifth annual ThriveMap event details his plan for goal setting with executives and professionals for 13 years.
“I have a process of setting goals which I thought was great for 13 years,” he said. “I’ve been continually refining the process to help people get crystal clear on what’s really important.”
The event is scheduled for 9 to 11:30 a.m. Dec. 9 at Forum Conference and Events Center, 11313 USA Prky.
“Each year, I simplify the message,” he said. “My goal is that in two-and-a-half hours, you can develop a really good idea of what you want to achieve in the next calendar year both personally and professionally. I help people cut through the clutter and develop a really powerful emotional connection to their goals.”
His event is free and open to the public, but registration is required. Registration can be complete at cjmcclanahan.com or by emailing his director of marketing at email@example.com.
McClanahan sponsors a nonprofit each year. This year’s nonprofit is College Mentor for Kids. College Mentor for Kids connects college students with school-aged children who need a mentor. The college students mentor the children in the importance of higher education.
“It’s free because I have sponsors who offset the cost of the course, so what I do every year is I discuss a local nonprofit at the event and my goal is to have 200-300 people in the room all getting exposed to the nonprofit and supporting that nonprofit with their time and money,” he said.
