Nothing truly great happens in an organization until people have a conversation. Nothing!
And goals are the basis for all purposeful human interaction.
This is why goals must be SMART. We like to use a little bit of a twist:
S = Specific
A= Aggressive ( this is different than most common usage)
T= Time bound
Research done by Step Change Learning across large organizations about what really makes a goal work, they asked people to think about the most meaningful work experience and then asked questions about that experience.
70% reported there was a written goal
28% reported there was a goal, but not written
2% said they just got lucky
When asked how challenging the goal was, 89% said there was a significant amount of stretch required to accomplish the goal.
When asked how important was the goal to them personally 95% reported achieving the goal was was very important to them personally.
What we learn from this study :
1- Having some kind of a goal plays a huge role;
2- Having a goal be challenging that causes us to stretch and not be easy plays a big role;
3- Having personal importance to the individual plays an especially big role,
in significant accomplishments for individuals.
The reason to use SMART goals isn’t to cause more work, but when done right, SMART goals increase the probability of success for the individual and the organization.
