VISION is an acronym and model for working with goals developed by Clare Smale. Clare’s book ‘Transforming Your Goals With Vision’ aims to support you to develop a powerful vision of what you want – at home, work or any other area of your life. It helps you discover what works and use simple and effective tools to help you achieve your dreams and ambitions. The activities and tools utilised in the 7 step system below can be used time and time again for different situations. The book provides step by step instructions, plus templates that you can use as many times as you like. The 7 step system embeds tools and techniques from coaching and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP).

‘This is a deceptively powerful book; it’s warm, inviting and fun to look at but actually it’s a tiger in lambs clothing. Clare has effectively trawled the minds of some of our greatest thinkers and distilled their wisdom in one place, then wrapped it in a logical, practical yet encouraging structure. Anyone seriously intending to realise significant change in their circumstances would do well to work through the methods described here. With just one word of caution – be careful what you wish for!’ Julie Starr, author of The Coaching Manual and Brilliant Coaching.
