  • Introduce the topic of goal setting. Ask participants to turn to page 30 in their workbook. Discuss goal setting by following the explanation in the workbook. Explain the concept of the SMART goal: Specific —Exactly what skills and behaviors will you be working to improve? Measurable — What evidence will there be for your success? How will you measure progress on each goal? Action-oriented —Do you have to take some specific action to achieve the goal? Goals should not be “thinking,” “considering,” “observing” or other passive non-behavioral activities. Realistic —The goal should be challenging, but attainable. Time-specified —What dates can you attach to each goal? Are there intermediate dates at each phase whereby early sub-goals lead to a final date for the larger goal? Three steps to writing a SMART goal: 1. Identify the general area you want to develop. 2. Identify exactly what behaviors or skills you are trying to learn, change, enhance, or adopt. 3. Determine how you will measure your progress toward the goal.
