Ideal Way to Establish Goals

I’ve shared with you that annual company goals must be specific, measurable and focused, but that’s only part of the goal setting process. Annual goes can be established by the owner or president of a company, the management team, or a management consultant.  

What is the ideal way to establish company goals? By involving a number of management and employees at the start of each year, the goals will become the employee goals instead of management goals.

I’ve facilitated this goal setting process with clients. In these sessions, management states what is important and employees comment and contribute. Ultimately the goals are accepted by everyone involved. This team approach to goal setting has a bias for results, generates buy-in and commitment from all employees, and is often the most significant companyw ide change that can be implemented by any company.

This goal setting process really works!
