How to Start to See Results In 4 Weeks

To achieve results in your team, I recommend completing the course and creating your Accountability Plan in 1 Week. Then, over the course of the next 3 weeks, you use the plan to make sure it sticks in your team. You can see the recommended progress in the timeline below.

Of course, to achieve results, you really need to take action on the plan! 

Note that in some situations, it might take longer than 4 weeks, depending on your team, organisation and policies. But in general, I’ve found that you really can make improvements quite quickly.

How long will the course take to complete?2022-06-19T10:21:07+08:00

This course is not meant to take you a long time – it’s meant to help you improve accountability and start to see results, fast. The lesson videos should take you only a few hours to complete, but the real benefit of the course lies in completing the course exercises and your Accountability Plan.

Some of the exercises in the course involve bringing the course material into your day to day working life and trying things out, so these may take longer. If you’ve selected the coaching plan, the course exercises also help you prepare for the upcoming coaching session and provide me with valuable input to help me understand your situation.

How Do I Complete the Online Course?2024-06-18T14:06:08+08:00

The course is hosted on Podia, a secure online learning platform. You’ll be given access as soon as you enrol.

Using this platform, you’ll be able to access everything you need to complete the exercises and you can also leave comments and ask questions along the way.

Podia saves your progress as you go, and you can go at your own pace. I recommend completing a module every 1 or 2 weeks so you have time to work on the exercises as you go.
