I went to a leadership meeting today at my day job ( http://www.moto.com/). One of the things that was taught was “Managing Performance”. I can’t find where the chart we were given came from on the internet, so I drew it using MS Paint. This cycle is relevant for management, designing, building and everything related to work. For Collab21, it’s relevant because we’re in the process of setting most of our long term goals.
This cycle starts with Setting goals. Once the goals are set and dates are applied, it’s important to monitor performance. Depending on how things are going, the feedback will be in line with that. The team should evaluate how to proceed and act based on the direction of the feedback. New goals can be set if things didn’t go as expected the first time around.
Tips for setting goals were also discussed in this meeting. Goals should be all of the following to be effective:
When setting goals, re-evaluate each goal by making sure it doesn’t fail any of these criteria. Goals drive performance. How are the Mission101 goals for the Collab21 members progressing?
