Writing Effective Goals

Many times, employees mistake activities and tasks that fall into a normal job description as goals. It is important to be able to clearly articulate your top priorities in any given year.  Writing good goal statements allows peers and colleagues to know what you will be working on.  Goals are outcomes and deliverables, not tasks per se.  Learn what it takes to write effective goals.

Intended Audience

All employees, supervisor and managers who develop goals each year.
