Setting SMART Objectives

Setting objectives is a vital skill for any leader, whether you’re in charge of a small team or a huge company. And on a more personal level, setting objectives will help you achieve everything you want to in life.

The problem is many people make their objectives too vague or unrealistic. And they don’t properly measure success. This course will solve that problem. You’ll learn how to set SMART objectives that keep you and your team laser focused on the most important things, so you can both grow and improve.
