People who have goals are 10x more successful than those without, and people with written goals are 3x more successful on top of that! Boost business results by educating your staff about goal setting and achievement. Missing the mark on goals can be costly in time, money, energy and trust. Many goals fail to be reached due to lack of planning, or the ability to break down complex ideas into manageable tasks. A simple, yet effective, approach to goal making (and reaching) strategy is to use the SMART approach, which helps organize ideas, and implement action plans and tasks without complicated theories or models.
