No matter how small your business, it is necessary to have your “ducks in a row.” S.M.A.R.T. Goals” can help provide your organization with focus, drive and enthusiasm. Goals engage employees and give them something to work towards. Goals capture data that can show the strong areas of your business and define areas for improvement.
Establishing attainable goals can be difficult. That’s why it’s important for goals to be S.M.A.R.T. From company wide goals to personal goals, it is necessary that each goal is:
- S – specific
- M – measurable
- A – achievable
- R – relevant
- T – time bound
Leadership must first determine where you want your business to go and then establish the S.M.A.R.T. goals that will help you get there. It then becomes easier for the departments and employees to line up with the company.
S.M.A.R.T. goals make your mission and vision come alive for those you work with. They give everyone a sense of belonging and teamwork.
