Coffee and Coaching for July 2012: Purpose and Persistence

Have you ever thought about what you really want? Do you wonder whether you really have the drive to see it through? Then this month’s series at Coffee and Coaching is just for you!

In May and June, we discussed communication and personal relationships, most recently considering such subjects and bringing people around to your way of thinking, and the number one secret of great communication. Today (6/29) we are going to examine the subject of giving praise and criticism people appreciate – a tricky subject, but one which can really empower your relationships, grow your organization, and increase your revenues.

Essential to achieving any life or business goal is having a clear picture of your purpose and having the perseverance to see things through. Our biggest challenge in life is creating a clear picture of what we want, and then holding that image until we bring it to be. During July, we will examine four topics that will help you gain focus and clarity on these important subjects, and give you some concrete things you can do to grow these skills.



July 6 – What Do You Want…Really?

July 13 – Who Are You Taking With You?

July 20 – Sticking It Out

June 27 – Where Do I Go From Here?


Coffee and Coaching is an informal affair. Each week, Dwayne Baptist presents a business or personal development topic to help people move forward their businesses. After the talk and Q & A session, Dwayne does some “laser coaching” where people have the opportunity to share a current challenge they are facing and discover a logical next step to get them moving forward in the right direction. After Dwayne gets things moving, the group is invited to “Mastermind” with the volunteer to discover additional novel ways to approach the issue. As the meeting begins to wrap up, people will have an opportunity to connect and network.
