How to Achieve Big PHAT Goals
How to Achieve Big PHAT Goals is designed for leaders who view their employees as an investment
rather than an expense and are committed to retaining, developing and leading committed self-motivated team players. Dean Lindsay's Big PHAT Goals Program helps Align Personal Goals with Organizational Objectives and includes insight into the Six Ps of Progress and the Six Rules for Big PHAT Goal-Crafting, both found in Dean Lindsay's newest book, Big PHAT Goals. We must dedicate ourselves to crafting personal and organizational goals that are so attractive, so alluring, so PHAT that we are compelled to continually make choices that move us toward their accomplishment. As a noun, CRAFT can mean an object or machine designed for a journey, like a ship or an airplane. As a verb, CRAFT can mean to make or manufacture with skill and careful attention to detail. A goal is the aim, the objective, the purpose, the point. Stop setting goals and start CRAFTING goals.

The business term change management has been around for a long while. The term relates to
"initiating significant change" within an organization's processes. This change can include anything from altering work culture to embracing diversity to modifying an individual's work tasks to increasing company morale and loyalty. The goal of "initiating significant change" is solid, but where is the
passion in the word choice? The problem with the term �change management� is that no one really
desires to change or plans to change. We desire and plan to progress.
All progress is change but not all change is PROGRESS. It is natural to resist change but we embrace
PROGRESS. We do not want managers to manage our change. We want leaders to lead our progress.
In a time of continual transformation, committed leaders should focus on inspiring the progress, not
apologizing for the change.
Be a BAM Sales Training Program
Mastering the Seven Keys to Becoming a BUSINESS ATTRACTION MAGNET! All BAM sales training
programs are customized to fit the specific challenges of your sales organization.
In these tough economic times, the business of sales is the business of ATTRACTION.  We are attracted
to products, services, ideas, and people that we TRUST can help us PROGRESS. The days of the
“Surefire Closing Statement” and the “Glad-handing Slick Salesman” are long gone.  Today it is
imperative for Sales Professionals to truly get to know their prospects and help prospects get to know
them. Selling is therefore a state of mind more than a series of steps.
Too Stressed to Progress
Stress Management for Safety Professionals: Workplace stress is rarely part of anyone’s job description, but it is unfortunately part of most jobs,
especially in the safety industry. It is tough to progress when we are stressed. In fact, we feel stress
when we feel we are being hindered from progressing in our jobs. Businesses across the U.S. lose
$200-$300 billion dollars annually to stress, resulting in loss in productivity and treatment costs.
Effects of stress in the workplace include Safety Accidents, Absenteeism, Disruptive Outbursts and
Tendency to do as little as possible to get by. All reduce productivity and damage an organization’s
bottom line. Plus, many do not have a well-defined boundary between work and home, and end up
taking work problems home with us and letting them affect our personal lives.
