"If you truly want to make a significant change in your business and personal life, then you need this book."
SIMON HAZELDINE, bestselling author of Neuro–Sell: How Neuroscience Can Power Your Sales Success


The Check–in Strategy Journal will help you take control and ownership of your business and personal life performance. It is your guide, a compass to manage your time and activities. The busier you are, the more you need a tool to keep you in–check and on–track.

Unlike other journals, all the tools, techniques and exercises have been proven to help grow business significantly. The authors introduce tools they use in their own businesses and with clients from Fortune 500 blue chips (Barclays, Virgin, Google Partners, Vistage, Academy of Chief Executives, Warwick and Cranfield Business Schools) to high–growth, independently–owned organisations to not–for–profit organisations.

In Part One you will be guided though a series of strategic exercises to create goals and targets for the coming year. Part Two helps you to achieve these through daily, weekly, monthly and quarterly monitoring and accountability.

Define your vision, your way. Plan your business and personal goals. Now work through the plan. The Check–in Strategy Journal will help you create clarity and focus for all aspects of your business and personal life.
