SMART as Hell Presents

Driving Strategy Execution through Effective Goal Setting

August 2nd, 2012; 8:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
The Inn on Broadway
20 Broadway, Rochester, NY 14607

OVERVIEW:

  • Are you frustrated by misalignment during reviews and evaluations?
  • Do you waste time and energy trying to understand poorly worded objectives?
  • Do you struggle to create alignment between yourself and your employees, clients, managers, customers, or vendors?
  • Is your team hitting 80% of their goals, but not moving the needle in meaningful ways?

Employee alignment is a critical factor in driving strategy execution.  Goal setting is the most common tool used in organizations today to align employees to corporate goals.  If individual goals are properly constructed to cascade down from the business plan into the individual responsibilities and measures required to achieve the corporate goals – then the business succeeds.   Also, when constructed properly this enables an organization to measure progress toward achievement of corporate goals by assessing % achievement against goals as a leading indicator, and the financials as a lagging indicator.

Effective goal setting is also a critical component to ensuring talent retention and development.  High performers are most driven when working in intellectually stimulating settings where they are forced to think critically, creatively, and in a strategically impactful way.  While most organizations focus on ensuring that all employees have goals in place, and those goals are defined in a specific format (e.g. SMART), the real challenge is in the nature of the goals themselves (ie. The degree of stretch and alignment with desired business outcomes.)

True organizational performance improvement is the result of proper goal setting, and SMART is the most popular framework for writing goals.  While many leaders and managers have learned the SMART framework, very few strategic goals actually meet the SMART criteria.

This course will give participants the tools and confidence they need to develop clear, measurable goals aligned to their organization’s goals and objectives; and earn their seat at the strategy table.  Before participants leave the session they will have practical tools to use right now to increase the performance of their organization.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

Anyone who is required to write goals or meet goals.

IN THIS WORKSHOP, YOU WILL:

  • Take a strategic objective from their organization and translate it into individual goals.
  • Identify the four types of evaluation, along with the advantages and disadvantages of each type.
  • Use the SMARTometer to accurately score the quality of a goal.
  • Create a SMART as Hell Goal for tasks or soft skills that are often difficult to measure.
  • Apply the SMART 6-Step Process to align evaluation expectations with those who measure you.
