Highly Effective Objective Setting

Program Overview

Some might say that ‘objectives’ are the  rather boring part of a sterile performance management process.

And for many on the receiving end, this is what they have become – the hand-me-down corporate-speak objectives bearing little relationship to the people who have to sign up to them.

Not any more! Whether you are inside a corporate structured process or creating your own and don’t know the route to take, this program works for you.

To get full value in this program, you will need to get involved fully, share some of your challenges as well as get hands-on experience of using a simple series of tactics to get you – and your people moving again.
