Signtronix – Leading & Goals Part 3

Published by at 9:00 am under Signtronix,Signtronix Reviews,Signtronix Signs

There are four characteristics of goal setting:

Goal Difficulty: Increasing your region’s goal difficulty increases their challenges and enhances the amount of effort expended to achieve them. The more difficult goals lead to increased performance if they seem feasible. If they seem too high, people will give up when they fail to achieve them.

Goal Specificity: When given specific goals, people tend to perform higher. Telling them to do their best or giving no guidance increases ambiguity about what is expected. They need a set goal or model in order to display the correct behavior.

Feedback: Providing feedback enhances the effects of goal setting. Performance feedback keeps their behavior directed on the right target and encourages them to work harder to achieve the goal.

Participation in Goal Setting: Those who participate in the process generally set higher goals than if the goals were set for them. It also affects their belief that the goals are obtainable and increases their motivation to achieve them.


“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.”  ~Warren Bennis
