How to set SMART goals

All organizations know that effort without intention is a rocky foundation to try to achieve success.

Every process and project should start with an identified outcome and impact, which then can be reverse-engineered into a plan of action. This is the very basic method of goal-setting. I’m sure you’ve heard of it before: big elephant, small bites. This only scratches the surface, though.

Join behavior analytics and people operations strategist Kasey Chas of PROPEL for this online training course to learn how to outline your goals using the SMART methodology, the new standard of goal-setting.

In this interactive video-based training, you'll see why just saying, “Our goal is to boost membership” is not nearly what it takes to get there. The parts between where your organization is and where you want it to be are crucial. Driving your teams to success requires a SMART roadmap.

This on-demand learning course gives you the 5-step SMART process (and roadmap template) to transform vague initiatives into meaningful and measurable goals.

To help build on your understanding of the process, you'll use the guided portions of the lessons to set your own SMART goal throughout each learning module using the downloadable companion tools:

  • Metrics Primer
