Goal setting is an essential part of most coaching programmes. But it is also an important activity to carry out in our day-to-day lives when we want to achieve things and enjoy a sense of purpose.
When we are feeling aimless, dissatisfied and lacking a sense of control, it is often because we haven't given thought to our goals. If we want to change those frustrations to feeling purposeful, content and focused, the process of goal setting itself, and not just the goals that result, is valuable:
“People who set goals are more likely to succeed than people who do not.” Tal Ben Shahar, Harvard University

In common with other personality characteristics, we all vary in our approach to conflict; some of us will go out of our way to avoid disagreement, while others will go out of their way to engage in it. Most of us are somewhere in-between, and where we 'sit' on this continuum contributes to an overall sense of how "agreeable" we are in communication with others. The impact of our approach to conflict can be significant. Whilst we readily comprehend that being overly combative can be problematic, many fail to recognise how problematic being overly conflict-avoidant can be.
