Many businesses take a do-it-yourself approach to incentive programs This may turn your highest-potential reps into mindless zombies. Don’t do it. By allowing sales reps to select their own personal goals, for a specific initiative, you engage them and they will deliver (almost) super-human results.

1. People set goals naturally.
Everyone has the inclination to set and achieve goals. Selecting a personal goal tied to individual baselines helps sales reps feel they have a fighting chance to achieve. People like to believe their situation is unique. If they don’t feel they have an advantage, they won’t participate. It is important to have goals that are relevant to all performance levels as it increases attainment and delivers better results.

2. When you let people choose a goal, they do.

3. When people have the opportunity to choose their own goal, they perform like never before.

4. Relevant goals are more achievable. Goals are based on an individual’s baseline performance.

5. Higher selected goals lead to higher performance. 41% of those who choose the highest goal level achieve it.

6. If you don’t know where you’re at, you don’t know how hard to work to reach your goal. 40% of results happen in the last one-third of the program. This reinforces the goal gradient theory, which says the closer people get to the goal, the more effort they put into achieving it.

7. Stay ahead of the zombies with a quick lead out of the starting gate. Top achievers get off to a great start
