At work, you need individual goals that express what you want to be doing, says ClearCompany CEO Andre Lavoie, who explains the four characteristics of a smart employee goal.
1. It’s public. Making your goal transparent ensures it’s a priority.
2. It’s connected to company goals. Connecting individual goals to company goals drives business success.
3. It’s challenging. Employees are often told to set realistic goals, but this often results in small goals that are void of aspiration. Goals should be challenging and achievable.
4. It’s revisited. As you grow, so will your goals. Evaluate them regularly to keep them aligned with your objectives and the company’s.
