Aligning Goals to Strategic Priorities
The MORE Model
Setting goals is the foundation of developing employees. New or inexperienced managers often struggle to clearly communicate to their direct reports how goals are connected to strategic priorities. As a result, their employees are unclear about direction and expectations, which can result in reduced commitment, low morale, and underachievement.
In Aligning Goals to Strategic Priorities, participants will:
- Explore the impact of organizational goal alignment
- Learn from best practices goal setting
- Create goals that support their organization’s strategic goals
- Learn to lead through changing goals
- Create goals for themselves
Clear performance expectations and goals align individuals, departments, and the organization. This program enables first-line and mid-level managers to set goals for themselves and with their employees. This will ultimately contribute to long-term individual satisfaction and improved work group and organizational performance.
Aligning Goals to Strategic Priorities is delivered as a 3-hour virtual module. The program can be facilitated by Wilson Learning or a leader-trained in-house certified facilitator. This enables:
- Peer-to-peer virtual, real-time interaction among the participants and the facilitator
