In this episode of The Civil Engineering Podcast, I provide you with a three-step framework that you can use to ensure that your teams are more focused in 2023 on impactful and achievable goals.
Here Are Your 2023 Goal Setting Tips:
1. Ask Your Leaders to Set 90-Day Goals
- While you can still ask your division and team leaders to have annual goals for 2023, also ask them to break down their goals into quarterly or 90-day goals.
- Quarterly goals to support their annual goals might include quarterly revenue goals, or a number of proposals or sales meetings.
2. Assign a Clear End Result to Each Goal
- For each of the goals set, ensure that there is a very clear end point or deliverable that will be obvious once the goal is complete.
- Failure to define these milestones will make it difficult to stay focused on the goal and almost impossible to take step #3 below. The more defined the goal, the easier it will be to take steps to achieve it.
3. Monitor Progress Weekly
- Once your team has set quarterly or 90-day goals, with clear deliverables, be sure to monitor them regularly, weekly if possible.
- This could be as simple as you opening a document with your team members’ goals at the beginning or end of your weekly team meeting and just asking if everyone is on track with their goals.
