About This Masterclass


The Motivation & Goal Achievement Masterclass© is a comprehensive six-module coaching package. With this masterclass, you will be able to help your clients achieve meaningful success through the science of motivation and goal setting.

Decades of research show how much the types of goals people set matter. Some goals are better for people’s mental health, personal growth, and wellbeing than others (Ryan, Sheldon, Kasser, & Deci, 1996), because they better express a person’s underlying interests, values, talents, needs, and motives.

In addition to the video course, this masterclass offers a package for your professional development complete with coaching exercises, presentations, and structured activities that will provide you with both the theory and practical tools.

With your purchase, you’ll automatically gain the right to use all of the materials under your own brand. It’s perfect for expanding what you can offer your own clients. 

If you’re passionate about developing yourself and helping others find the necessary motivation to reach their life goals, the Motivation & Goal Achievement Masterclass is for you.

The Small Print

To promote good practice, please note that you are advised to use this masterclass and training package within the boundaries of your professional expertise. For instance, if you are a certified clinician, you are advised to use the training within your field of expertise (clinical psychology). Likewise, a school teacher may use the tools in the classroom, but it would not be advisable to use the tools provided for clinical populations.

While the Motivation & Goal Achievement Masterclass© includes a training template that provides you with the knowledge and tools you can use to give your own training on goals and motivation, it is by no means a substitute for a coaching certification program. We recommend you attain a coaching certification before you call yourself an official coach or practitioner and before you see any clients or patients. If you are not already a licensed practitioner, this masterclass will still provide you with all the tools you need to sharpen your professional training skills and provides an invaluable starting point for designing your own training.
