Learning how to set effective and relevant goals is the first step in achieving professional and personal success. Appropriate and realistic goals serve as the roadmap to the future. Setting out on a professional or personal journey without a plan is not likely to give you the results you want. This interactive workshop provides instruction and guidance to assist participants in establishing goals using the SMART goal template (Specific, Measureable, Achievable, Relevant, Time bound). Topics that will be addressed include Time Management Fundamentals, Types of Goals — What Goals Are and Are Not, and Path to Building Goals. The intent of this workshop is to give participants the knowledge and skills to select appropriate, attainable goals to ensure the best chance of success.
Participants will learn to:
• Identify the elements of the “SMART” goal setting process
• Set specific relevant personal and professional goals
• Develop an individual goal setting plan
• Identify obstacles and demonstrate techniques for overcoming those obstacles
