Beyond SMART: How to Set Goals That Get Your Team Where You Want To Go

This On-Demand event was originally presented on January 25, 2017 (60 min)


Setting and achieving goals is an important aspect of both personal and professional growth. Goals provide clear direction and focus, giving individuals and organizations a sense of purpose. They serve as powerful motivators to keep people motivated and dedicated to their tasks. They also provide a way to measure progress and allow for further evaluation and adjustments to be made. It’s evident that all good performance starts with clear goals. But if you want passionate performance, goals need to be more than “smart.”

Leadership expert Jesse Lyn Stoner will show you how to create goals that align with an inspiring vision, and how to navigate the journey to inspired performance. By the end of the session, you’ll have a better understanding of how to set and achieve goals that motivate and inspire passionate performance in yourself and your team.

Attendees will learn

  • How to create an inspiring vision that engages everyone on your team.
  • How to set the right goals for passionate performance.
  • Five guidelines to help you stay on track and what to do if you get knocked off-course.
