A big part of a leader’s job is to help people achieve their goals—it helps the individual succeed, it helps the organization succeed, and it is pretty good for you as the leader too! It doesn’t matter if you’re in the same building, or if you’re on the other side of the world—a leader’s role will always be to coach and guide each person to perform at his or her best (which certainly includes helping individuals achieve and deliver individual goals). As a leader, it is essential to create a plan for how you will follow-up and support your employees as they work to achieve their goals. Without a plan, the days and weeks tend to fly by (especially without seeing people in the hallways each day), and soon you may find you don’t know how your employees are doing, and even worse, they may be struggling and in jeopardy of missing their goals.
