TAKE A FEW SECONDS TO GOOGLE 'OBJECTIVE SETTING'. You will be told what the cliche 'SMART' acronym stands for but not much in the way of examples. And any that are given are the obvious ones: eg 'Increase sales by X'! And some aren't objectives at all: 'Put together a plan of action by X date' is just a task! It's no wonder that 86% of objectives are poorly-worded, don't get the desired results and people-managers struggle with the process.
Find out why this is happening: plus, examples using our unique 5-step approach around how objectives should be written. Check out:SMART Objectives Miss One Magic Ingredient!Discover a technique that isn't in any textbooks and you won't find it anywhere else.
