In order to achieve your major goals, it is very important that you set performance goals. To be completely sure that a normal goal is possible and attainable, all the parts are put in place in a performance goal. But, there are variations depending on your normal or final goal.

When the options to achieve the goal are that of individual, career and professional, they are mostly for improving yourself.

It is very crucial that while trying to improve on individual goals, there needs to be a step by step process on how to best achieve the major goal. In fact, better still, you should try to further break down the step by step process into more sub level steps. This will allow you to have a check on the plan on a daily basis.

A set of actions should be jotted down for every step. On a regular period, these sub level steps need to be assessed, and if necessary, revised. This is because, achieving your goals is not going to be easy, there is bound to be some resistance.

This resistance, though not always, can appear in the shape of other people. Mainly, these people are those that will be affected by your goals. By this, do not think that your goals are evil or immoral, but it could be an admission that other people also have goals to achieve.

This resistance can also be helpful in many cases. Ideas or thoughts which you may have not thought of earlier can be realized now, basically with the continuous interaction with these resistances. The experiences of these resistances can be very helpful as it may put some things in perspective, especially things that have confused you earlier.

When it comes to assessing your performance, experience gained at work from a colleague can be a source of huge information. You should not try to pry into their private lives even in informal talks, as they may reveal improvement in their personal career.

Setting performance goals are part of every executive or officer’s responsibilities in an organization. This is not as easy at it sounds. It ideally means that the performance of a company needs to be set that the employees will agree as their own.

In some cases, there may not even be a slight relationship between the long term goals of a company and an employee’s short term goals. This connection should be made clear from the beginning.

The performance goals of an employee should start with noting down the organization’s need, just like what you do for a personal goal.

Just think that if at an individual level, you need to discuss with yourself, what about an organization and its employees. That is why continuous communication is very crucial.

Also, the responsibility of an employee is not over after the initial meeting. Communication between employees and colleagues needs to be an ongoing affair and not a once off affair.

Setting performance goals for the company via the employees though may be difficult, but in the end it will aid in helping the company attain its prime goal. By this, the organization remains strong, which is necessary, in today’s world, to survive.
