Smart goal training

743

Published on

What is the difference between a goal and a SMART goal? People set goals every day, but people also fail to achieve these goals every day. Whether a person is setting a short-term goal for a task that needs to be finished today or another person is setting a long-term career goal that might take years to achieve, it is important for these individuals to set goals that give them the best possible chances for success. This seminar will teach you how to set and reach SMART goals, and it will also give you tools to identify whether your goals need adjusting if you are struggling to reach them.
