Thank you WBG Youth Summit Changemakers

This event will brought together almost 500 people from over 80 countries around the world plus another 10,000 change makers tuning in to the live stream.
I wrote a special blog post for all of my World Bank Youth Summit friends that was the basis for the workshop taught, How to Take Ideas from Concept to Creation. Read the article and use it as a reference for moving forward with your innovative ideas for impact.

4 Barriers to Going from Goal to Achievement
The problem with achieving our goals is that we have...
Lack of Clarity
Often, when we set goals, they are not clear enough to develop an effective and efficient strategy for achieving exactly what we want. Your plan and strategy can only be as effective as the clarity of your goals.
There are two mindsets that play a significant role in achieving goals - fixed and growth mindset. Someone with a growth mindset believes they can grow into their goals through learning and practice.
No Process for Progress
We often start on our goals with no plan or process. Without a process for building actions, measuring results, and improving, you risk NOT achieving your goals.
No Objectivity or Accountability
It is difficult to be objective with ourselves. Without objectivity and accountability, it is difficult to ask ourselves the challenging and uncomfortable questions that will drive improvement and progress.

Learning Strategist, Coach, & Speaker
I am learning strategist, coach, and speaker. After earning an M.S. in Psychology focused on executive coaching and leadership development, I set out to test executive coaching practices in education, startups, and corporations in order to help people and organizations set and achieve their goals. Since 2007, my practice has focused on the neuroscience and psychology of learning, peak performance, and expertise development. Currently, I am an executive coach, trainer, and program leader at IBM, based in New York City; I am also a Global Facilitator for Techstars Startup Weekend where I help aspiring entrepreneurs around the world learn how to take any idea from concept to creation. Prior to joining IBM, I taught middle and high school math for 4 years where I successfully applied executive coaching methodology to guiding students from where they are to where they want to be in math. I also hold B.S. degrees in Finance and International Business and an M.B.A.
My Fundamental Belief
I firmly believe that anyone can learn anything he or she chooses. I do not believe you have to be the best at what you choose to learn, instead you need to get on a path to learning it. Greatness will be determined much later, if and when you decide to reach the expert levels of that field. No one was born a math or science person. They became that way through learning and practice. You can learn and practice anything you choose.
