We’re going to do something different with the Twitter chat, #kaizenblog, this week. I’m pretty excited about this!

This is a special one-off conversation that came out of  “Year In Review (So Far)” that will include a simultaneous Skype converation and Twitter chat. It came out of a suggestion by Mary Ann Halford who  suggested that the #kaizenblog community combine the talents, knowledge and experience to make the end of 2010 successful and lay the groundwork for 2011. The  focus will be on your goals and the actions you want to take to achieve these goals.

Chat Format

We’re going to be using the hashtag #kQ4 to designate this #kaizenblog chat as different from the others. For those who have felt stymied by the limits on characters, you get to say more than usual. Yay!

A wonderful addition is we get to include one of our own as a guest. Caroline Di Diego (@CASUDI)  has been gracious enough

Caroline Di Diego

to allow her recent business launch to be a case study of how goals are designed, set and achieved. She, along with her partners, has launched emidaASIA and you can learn more here. 

We will be having a conversation with her about her methodology, process and any other tidbits of wisdom and advice she might have.

Another exciting aspect to this event is the Kaizen Act site (Many thanks to Mary Ann Halford for making the site active). This an in invitation-only site that will allow #kaizenblog community members to post their goals so we can learn about what you’re doing and help provide accountability over time. You do not have to post your goals to participate in the chat so please DM me or email me at coachinginfo (at) abilitysuccessgrowth (dot) comso we can send you an invitation. Please know that all goals posted are to be treated with respect and confidentiality. In order for this to work, everyone in the community has to feel secure that nothing will be made public nor used competitively.

Since this is right up my alley, I”m really excited to be of service! You get to pick my brain about goal setting, designing action and implementing your plan.
