In any given situation, people want to know why they should do something. We want to know why it matters to us, to others, and to the team or company. If the perception is that a task or assignment is unimportant or doesn’t matter, then the likelihood it gets done is greatly reduced. People want work that matters. They want to feel valuable and know their time is well spent. So when you’re setting goals for yourself or with others, be sure to answer the why question. This course will help you set goals for yourself, as well as help you set goals with your direct reports. By completing this course, you will be able to articulate a compelling reason why a goal matters to accelerate progress towards achieving the goal. This course has been approved for 1 hour of PDU credit from PMI (Project Management Institute). An Elearning! Magazine Excellence Award Winner: Management Development Learning Track.
