Focused Goals part 2

Well some interesting boats were drawn; sailboats, tugboats, speed boats, cruise ships etc.

The purpose? I had a specific boat in mind and none of you drew it.  How come? Because I didn't share my goal.

What boat you ask?  A shell.  My daughters row, so I'm focused on 4's and 8's.  

If I really wanted your success I should have been more specific in my request.  

Tip: Make your expectations SMART

Specific

Measurable

Attainable

Relevant

Timely

Example:  Complete a professional development course online, or classroom by December 21, 2013.  Completion will be measured by teaching that skill at a team meeting and a certificate of completion. 

If you are having trouble making your team goal SMART, email it to me, I'd be pleased to help.
