Goal setting is an essential part of working toward your success. Setting goals for yourself can help you remain focused and on task because with goals, you constantly have something to work toward. Doing so will allow you to achieve the success you were aiming for.
When you’re in a leadership position, you should make it a priority to ensure that all employees set smart goals that align with the needs and goals of the organization. Not only does this set your employees up for success, but it also sets your company up for success. The motivation level of employees strongly correlates with the success of the organization as a whole.
In his course, Dr. Dewett covers everything from crafting goals, to aligning them with those of your organization, as well as other important things to consider in regard to the overall process of setting goals and following through.
In the performance management portion of the course, Dr. Dewett focuses on three main areas that managers should pay close attention to: being supportive, gathering performance data, and ensuring accountability. Showing support for your employees and providing them with valuable feedback will allow them to continuously improve. Likewise, checking-in will help them to stay on track and prioritize accordingly. Ensuring accountability is another major aspect of performance management. It’s important that everyone in the organization is on track with their responsibilities to ensure the progression of the company as a whole.
When it comes to interacting with employees, Dr. Dewett strongly advises business leaders and managers to be as open and honest as they can without crossing any lines. Practicing authenticity in the workplace can help improve your rapport with employees as well as gain their overall trust. This will undoubtedly be of great help to you when it comes to managing performance as well as other aspects of your organization’s overall success.
