Goals vs. Wishes

When does a wish, a desire, or a vision become a goal? Goals require actions beyond the desire to see it move into a reality. 

This workshop is designed for the birth professional to support their goals towards becoming effective professionals.

Yet more than exploring personal goals, this advanced workshop equips birth professionals to partner with clients who have wishes of their own yet may lack the knowledge and the skills to translate those wishes into goals that become reality.


wishes versus goals - what's the difference?

This entertaining and interactive workshop allows participants to examine their own wishes for their life and to compare them to the goals they've achieved. Through reflection, each participant can acknowledge those wishes that may remain merely desires and those wishes that can be turned into goals with appropriate and timely actions. You'll end this workshop with a better understanding of what steps you can take to achieve your next level of success. And you'll develop deeper contentment as you accept your wishes as part of your long-term vision for your life.


navigating mixed messages

Our goal is to support our clients to the best of our ability in achieving the goals they have set for themselves. It doesn't matter what those goals are, what is important is that we provide evidence-based information and support for their choices. At times, our client's choices and actions may not match up with the goals they've set for themselves. As birth professionals, how do we best support them? This workshop uses real case studies to help you develop the skills you need to navigate mixed messages and to understand your client's goals and to provide the best support you can to help them achieve their goals.


going the distance for our clients

An effective birth professional moves beyond mere support for the client's choices to providing them with education and skills development that will enable them to engage with their power to make informed choices that are best for them. An effective birth professional has the skills to work with clients to help them discern their wishes and to use various strategies that encourages each client to draw upon their strengths as they take positive steps to achieve their goals. Far from feeling helpless in the light of today's one-size-fits-all maternity care, birth professionals will become equipped to support their clients to advocate for themsleves as they identify their wishes and what they would like to achieve as their goals.
