World Class Coaches® is conducting a Goal Setting Study for Young Adults. The study involves both males and females ranging in age from 18-25. This is a five year study beginning January 1, 2016 and ending December 31, 2020. Participants may enroll at anytime during the study period and will be monitored for five years from the date of their enrollment.
The purpose of the study is to learn more about the patterns and practices of young adults in the areas of goal setting, goal attainment and the role The Says Who? message plays in the process. Data collected will be used to assist in the production of future Says Who? For Young Adults Works.
There are six - steps to the Study. They are as follows:
Your participation does not involve any risks. However, if you have utilized or are currently utilizing a goal setting process which you have found to be beneficial, you are encouraged to maintain that plan.
There may be no direct benefit to you for your participation in this research study. You will receive a complimentary copy of the book Says Who? The potential benefits to you from participation in this study may include a better understanding of a goal-setting process as well as other goal attainment activities outlined in the book. Because as part of the Says Who? approach, we believe there are no "right or wrong" answers to the process of goal-setting and goal attainment, we do not get into telling anyone what to do. Instead our role is to improve the quality of the research in identifying and practicing the basic fundamentals necessary for a more effective goal-setting and goal attainment process. Your participation in this study may further aid our understanding of the Says Who? approach as part of the process.
The focus of the study is to learn more about the goal-setting, and goal attainment patterns and practices of the young adult population between the ages of 18-25 as a whole and not just you individually. Information gathered will only be used in identifying the goal-setting and goal attainment patterns and practices of the targeted young adult population as a whole. The data collected will be communicated as the findings of young adults between the ages of 18-25, and not of anyone person. Any information obtained in connection with this study will remain confidential on an individual basis, as to who supplied what.
Participants should be aware, however, that the study is not being run from a "secure" https server, the kind that are typically used to handle credit card transactions, so there is a small possibility that responses could be viewed by unauthorized third parties (e.g. computer hackers),
