Look out for this and make sure you let them know.

This is a way for you to lead them but also something for the team to strive for. • When setting goals, make them attainable. If you have one big objective, break it down and set goals that can be attained in a shorter period of time rather than months from now. Achieving the smaller goals makes it easier for the team and gets them motivated to continue towards the overall goal. • Consider setting a Big Hairy Audacious Goal (BHAG) — something for the whole team to really reach for. This should be in addition to your attainable goals so that there’s a sense of achievement and progress.
