A goal provides direction. In order to know where you are going, you need to know how to develop a plan that clarifies departmental expectations in writing and in “voice.” The translation of role responsibilities into a set of expected outcomes requires careful and clear thought, planning, and implementation. Knowing where to secure information and when to ask pertinent questions are critical components of the goal-setting process, especially in a changing environment. This workshop will show you how to make realistic, measurable, time-sensitive goals that connect to both business challenges and to individual career goals.
