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.
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.
