Goals on every Level - Enabling your team to become more productive
Most of us have come across goal setting in one way or another, be that at work when your boss comes over and tells you that you have to reach a certain sales target next quarter, or when we make a new year’s resolution to learn a new language.
But why do we constantly set goals? Does it even work? Can’t we just all try our best at whatever we do and be much happier? Turns out that setting effective and meaningful goals can have a tremendous effect, not only on your performance, but also on other aspects of your (work-)life. After all, “it's forward momentum in meaningful work-progress that creates the best inner work lives”.
In this talk, we'll be exploring how setting goals can achieve this and what other benefits it can have. We'll be looking into popular frameworks like S.M.A.R.T. and OKR's before showing how we can efficiently set goals in any role or position throughout the company to maximise the effect.
This talk will help leaders understand the importance of goals and equip them with tools to get their team more engaged and productive.
