The Goal Accountability Project (GAP)

Program Overview

Bridging the GAP in your success: The Goal Accountability Project is a collaboration with The Greenhouse and Pinellas County SCORE. GAP brings together a select group of business owners for an 8-week series starting on June 23.

Sheila Hooper Neisler, of Pinellas County SCORE and owner of Catalyst – A Marketing Company returns to facilitate the series. “The COVID-19 disruption to our businesses and our personal lives dramatically demonstrates how our goals, enthusiasm and even our momentum can get derailed in a moment’s notice.  Inertia, busyness and distractions set in.  We may have become complacent, perhaps lazy in our focus, productivity and accountability. (Efforts are for another day?).  The reality is that these efforts are EXACTLY what we will need to get our individual businesses launched or back on track.”

The Goal Accountability Project is specifically designed to help create and nurture an individual and small group discipline to deliver results.  Data has shown that past cohorts had 68% more focused on achieving their personally-set goals and 90% more confident in their ability to achieve them.

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do!” Johann Wolfgange von Goethe
