As we finalize this year’s business, leaders at all levels of the organization are looking ahead to the exciting process of breaking down next year’s company goals into business unit, department, team, and personal goals.
At the team and personal level, this means s.m.a.r.t. goal setting.
Master the art of your s.m.a.r.t. goal setting process; do not simply take what you are doing today and formulate that into more of the same s.m.a.r.t. language. This only maintains the status quo.
Remember that s.m.a.r.t. is smart when:
-It moves your business forward.
-It leads to a constructive stretch for you, one that enables you to improve.
-Customer impact is present.
-The situation or condition, through s.m.a.r.t., improves and is better than before.
How well are you and your leaders mastering the art of s.m.a.r.t.?
