The Goal Driven MBA Basic
Program Dates, Zoom link, Slack Group, Coaching Sessions, Resources, Recordings, and Participants
All sessions will be conducted by Zoom video at the link below. Please join the session a few minutes before we start.
We’ll be using Circle to communicate with each other in the group. We have invited you all to join. If you did not get the invite, please let me know.
I will send you an invitation to join Circle. When you get it, login to Circle and take a look around.
Individual Coaching Sessions
You will have up to two individual coaching sessions with Ed each month. I recommend you book them well in advance to make sure you can fit them in for the month.
Appointment hours are between 10 am and 5 pm, Tues – Thursday. My meeting times are 10. 12, 2, and 4 Central time.
Recordings of the Sessions
All the recordings will be posted on this page. Just scroll to the bottom of this page for the latest recording and assignments.
Please submit written assignments via the Forum app. Post to my channel, Ed Petty For all documents, please title them with your name and then the topic. I.e., John Jones – Goal Driven Summary.
To make your documents more readable, I recommend using Open Sans 14pt with 1.3 line spacing. Please do not send me rough drafts. I don’t expect perfection but clean formatting, spell checking, etc. is important. It is very hard to read a poorly formatted, sloppy document. Just sayin’.
