With many employees working remotely in today’s workplace, two-factors are of concern: accountability and trust – “Now that my employees are out of sight, are they performing?” Goal setting will not only increase both trust and accountability, it will help produce results. Setting clear goals with specific metrics, following structured timelines for check-ins, and creating expectations upfront helps managers envision success and achieve it. During this session participants will have the opportunity to learn a formulaic approach to creating goals with the S.M.A.R.T. model. Goals written in this way create clarity, inspire ownership and assist employees to achieve results. Setting aside time to have an in-depth discussion about goals with both your remote and in-person employees will ensure clarity. In this session a goal setting coaching conversation will be explored. And, if done properly, employees will not only buy-in, they will carry out and achieve. Topics: Learn the S.M.A.R.T. model Practice creating S.M.A.R.T. goals for your team Understand coaching techniques to have the goal setting conversation Who should attend?
