Photo credit: John LavittJohn Thompson and Kal Balian Antoun delivered an interactive presentation on achieving focus and developing banner goals at the latest Business Growth Workshop at the University Club of Pasadena. The gathered business owners from across Southern California probably were not expecting so much interaction so early in the morning from the leaders of the TG Loans mortgage team. By the end of the session, however, after answering pages of probing questions, the consensus in the room was that truly valuable work had been accomplished.Introduced on Tuesday, April 28 at the 7:30 am workshop by James Harwood of Total HR Management, the first idea presented during the presentation was that business plans are a huge waste of time. Rather than have an amorphous business plan with far-off goals, the strategy of John Thompson and Kal Balian Antoun was to provide the attendees with a clear and specific blueprint to implement over the next 60-90 day period. If you can enact your banner goals in the now, then today becomes truly effective as success evolves into an everyday process of actual implementation.Although the session felt at times like a self-realization weekend retreat for personal growth, John Thompson wanted to make it clear it was much more than just new age mumbo-jumbo. Rather, by addressing the concerns of the whole person, the well-wounded holistic approach avoids leaving any minefields behind to cross that could undermine the achievement of one’s banner goals. John Thompson appealed to the success-driven perspective of any business owner by clearly expressing how,“The daily activities in a business are not what drives the outcome. What drives the outcome is why you go to work. By connecting to your passion, you connect to your success.”Kal Balian Antoun supported this idea by illustrating the results of her own experience when she first took a seminar based in the same ideas. The reason John Thompson and Kal Balian Antoun is because they took the same seminar together with their team, then decided to make the jump into teaching what worked so well for them. Kal Balian Antoun explained how after implementing the program of banner goals into her own life, her family could not believe her personal shift in terms of discipline and dedication.In the end, both Kal Balian Antoun and John Thompson made clear that any banner goals developed in the session had to be SMART goals. SMART goals stand for Specific-Measureable-Attainable-Realistic-Time Bound objectives that actually can be accomplished within the 60 to 90 day time period. By avoiding wishful thinking in the form of pie in the sky indulgences, the program actually could lead to recognizable and rewarding success.Although it’s unclear whether or not the participants are going to put their SMART banner goals into action, at the very least, everyone at the latest Business Growth Workshop walked away with a greater sense of personal and business clarity. The interactive presentation by John Thompson and Kal Balian Antoun shows once again the value being delivered to the Pasadena Community by the ongoing series of events at the University Club.About the AuthorGrowing up in New York City as a stutterer, John Lavitt embraced writing as a way to express himself when the words would not come.
