One of the cornerstones of the Monarch Executives training program is goal setting. The ability to identify and work toward clearly-defined objectives is more than just the secret to personal achievement; working as a team requires strong goal setting and planning as well.
Organizational objectives play a role in our success, too. Our firm’s President, Blanca, has set growth targets for the company that include increased recruiting and expansion. When individuals and teams align their efforts with Monarch Executives’ goals, both the business and our associates prosper.
These are a few of the goal-setting strategies we share:
• Find Your True Motivation: Goals are rarely what we’re actually motivated by. For example, making more money is a popular desire, but often the motivation behind it is to buy something new, or to pay off bills. It’s not the objective; it’s the purpose that will push us to put in the effort.
• Get SMART: SMART is an acronym for Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-sensitive, and it’s easy to see how putting any goal through this filter will make it more attainable. Our previous idea of making more money, when we apply SMART to it, becomes increasing our income during Q4 by 10 percent over last year’s earnings by doing X, Y, and Z.
These are just two of the many techniques we share when it comes to helping team members reach their goals. Find more of our strategies by checking out our Monarch Executives Newswire feed.
