SMART Objective Setting for Managers by Irial O'Farrell
Every year, managers all over the world go through the objective setting motions. Many managers dread it. They grapple with identifying useful objectives, particularly where there are behavioural developmental gaps such as improving communication skills, influencing, chairing meetings, etc.
SMART Objective Setting for Managers uncovers the flaw with SMART theory, when setting goals with another person, and clarifies the purpose of objective setting within the broader context of performance. You’ll identify the different types of objectives and drivers and how they influence the types of objectives set for the year.
Using the Prompts for You questions, at the end of each chapter, and the free worksheets that you can download, you will be guided through the process of designing objectives that will really make a different to your team members’ and the collective team’s performance.
