"I can't say enough good about having a Best Year Yet
facilitator working with our Board of Directors. Karen Morey used their
system to help us clarify goals AND the best part followed. She
continues to use the system to keep us celebrating and working hard to
prepare for each upcoming meeting, assuring steady progress toward those
goals in a step by step fashion. There is no way we would be where we
are without the services of Best Year Yet®. It truly is our best year yet despite the recession.
I personally use their
system as well, setting goals for myself. It brings a lot of peace
because instead of fretting about what hasn't been done, it records all
the stuff that HAS been done. It also reminds me of the priorities I
have set for the month - especially those for my health and the
well-being of family. It keeps me from going off on tangents, or
forgetting the most important values in my life.
The program is changing how
I see myself and my tasks in a very positive way. It's really been a
turning point for me and for the Board of Directors. I highly recommend

you enjoy meetings where people sit around with confused looks on their
faces while asking one another "What do you think we should do?", then
you do not want to take advantage of the Best Year Yet® process.
however, you prefer meetings where people have clear purposes, openly
evaluate progress on tasks, and collaborate in achieving new goals, then Best Year Yet® might be valuable for your organization.
the assistance of BYY, The Presbytery of Missouri River Valley has
accomplished more than developing a Strategic Plan. Through the guidance
of our coach and implementing the process, our leadership has been able
to track progress, make adjustments, identify successes, and expand our
vision. Any group may develop a plan; the genuine and often difficult
challenge is to follow-through with the tasks and take the steps
necessary to accomplish one's goals.
experience of our Presbytery was summarized best by one of our leaders
who stated "It used to be that we just sat around and talked ...and that
is all we did, we talked. Now, still talk, but we get things done!"
~ Kevin S. Keaton, Executive Presbyter, Presbytery of Missouri River Valley, Omaha, NE
Charities engaged BYY to work with our management team to create a
disciplined approach to allocating our scarce resources to better serve
our clients. What we found is that the BYY program offers much more
than this. It has helped our team grow closer and feel better about
what we can accomplish as a team. These lessons will have a lasting,
positive effect on our agency."
~ John Griffith, Executive Director, Catholic Charities, Omaha, NE
"I admit that I was a bit leery of Best Year Yet as I have participated in lots of processes for goal setting. However,
I have been pleased with the results of a year long growth for all of
the Leadership Team, both as a group and as individuals. Here are some things that I think we learned, from my viewpoint, through BYY this year:
how to acknowledge our (and our individual professional) accomplishments and disappointments for the last year;
how to unify on specific goals, paradigms, and focuses for the upcoming
year -- never before had this group needed to be as specific as we were
through BYY; accepting accountability in front of others without defenses or excuses; to truly communicate with one another about the needs of the agency and the clients served;
to be on task and on target with plans to make 2007 a year to remember for the leadership team; and staying focused as a team.
I believe that BYY will be leaving our Leadership Team a much stronger, more trusting environment. What
was accomplished as an agency (reaching many of the goals) for the 12
months was also a device to accomplish something even more important --
truly solidifying a team of leaders for our future."
~ S.S.Program Director, Child Saving Institute Omaha, NE
Yet was exactly what I needed to focus on my corporate goals as well as some
very important personal goals. I really liked the process and the manner
in which it has been delivered. I have seen
measurable improvement in my team's goals this year by utilizing some of the
tools I got through this process. I will be a return client for this very

“I highly recommend Donna King! The Best Year Yet
workshop that she took me through was not only an enlightening experience but
it empowered me to act and do things that I never thought I could do. I am well
on my way to the most exciting and productive time of my life. She has helped
me overcome my fears and lack of confidence while helping me accountable and
true to myself”
~ Stacy Schatz, Take Shape for Life Associate
"I look forward
to the review meeting each month to see how much I have accomplished. Sometimes I'm disappointed, but setting
my goals for next month pumps me back up so I’m ready to charge ahead. I'm anxious to see how the annual review
will go, and I am equally anxious to go through the planning of next year’s
goals to see if I can accomplish even more than this year. All I know is that when it is all said
and done, it truly is my Best Year Yet! ~ Susan Owens, Business Owner/Insurance
