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:
- Step One: Complete Online Enrollment Process
- Step Two: Complete Online Survey. It will take you about
15-minutes to complete.
- Step Three: Receive complimentary copy of Says
Johnnie Johnson via US Mail. Book shipped within three
to five days of enrollment.
- Step Four: Read book.
- Step Five: Identify and record in writing three or more
key points, hereafter your “Says Who? Key Points,” you
took away from the book. Next, record what role you believe
your “Says Who? Key Points” could potentially
have on your goal setting process and the attainment of
your goals, if any, if they were consistently applied to
your life? E-mail your response to email@example.com.
- Step Six: Upon receipt of your “Says Who? Key Point’s” response
by World Class Coaches®, you will receive an electronic
copy of a “Quarterly Young Adult Study Progress Report,” via
e-mail. For a period of five years beginning the end of
the first quarter after your enrollment and at the end
of each quarter of the year thereafter for a period of
five years, complete the form by the 7th day the month
following the end of each quarter of the year and submit
it to World Class Coaches® via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 complementary
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).
Although your information will be held in confidence, participation
in this research study may result in a loss of privacy, since persons
other than the researchers might view your study records. Unless required
by law, only study researchers, members of the researcher’s team,
and authorized members from World Class Coaches® will have authority to
review your study records. Results of the study may be used for research
publications, Says Who? For Young Adults future works, or presentations
on the subject matter by World Class Coaches® authorized presenters.
Your participation in this study will involve no direct cost to you,
nor will you be paid for participating. You will receive a complimentary
copy of the book Says Who? by Johnnie Johnson.
By participating in this study, you grant World Class Coaches®,
researchers, or anyone authorized by World Class Coaches® all
rights to the data collected from you and permission for the
researchers to use it in the manner deemed best suited for the
purpose of this study. Furthermore, you agree not to receive
any form of compensation or rights for the study, now
or at any time in the future.
Participation in this study is completely voluntary. Once enrolled,
you are free to withdraw at any time. You are free to choose not to answer
particular survey, or quarterly progress report questions if you do not
