As you consider your own workplan, and your discussions with your team members how are your goals SMART-E. We want to make sure our goals are:
S - Specific - What specifically do you want to achieve? What will it look like?
M - Measurable - How can you track progress?
A - Achievable - With some stretch are these achievable?
R - Realistic - Again, with stretch are these in range?
T - Timebound - What's the timeframe on this - next week, end of June, early 2015?
E - And most of all, are these goals Exciting? If they are not exciting, chances are they might got get done, or may get done only to get them checked off.
I go more in-depth around SMART-E Goals in my book, From One to Many: Best Practices for Team and Group Coaching and talk further in part three about organizational capacity development and coaching skills for leaders.
What's important about goals in your work right now? How SMART-E are your goals? Your Team Goals?
