The new year — actually, the new decade — has arrived and you’re ready to hit the ground running. Both personally and as a group, you want your employees to achieve big things in 2020.
Since you’ve teamed up with Las Vegas hiring support to bring on new staffers, you have time to work with your employees to set goals for the new year. Here’s some advice to help them create objectives that will take them to the next level.
Discuss Where They’re Headed
If they don’t know what their future entails, your employees can’t set meaningful goals. Take each person aside for a one-on-one chat about what they want from their career. Use this information to help them map where they want to be in one, five and 10 years, so they can create goals that will get them there.
Highlight Their Strengths — and Weaknesses
Goals are created to help people learn and grow, so help your employees know what to focus on. Working with people to uncover their strengths and weaknesses is important because it’s not always easy to self-identify these traits. Discussing employees’ weaknesses might be a bit awkward, but just be gentle, and know you’re helping them become the best version of themselves.
Review Past Goals
Your employees’ 2019 goals can be telling. Review their goals from last year together to see what went well and what didn’t. For those they didn’t achieve, discuss why they fell short. This could be a lack of company support or simply a lack of interest in the objective on their part. Getting to the root cause will be helpful for both of you, as they’ll set goals that better align with their future and you’ll be more mindful about setting them up for success.
Make Goals S.M.A.R.T.
Vague goals have a habit of being broken. Encourage employees to make all their goals S.M.A.R.T. — specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, time-bound — to increase their chances of success. This leaves no room for interpretation and holds people accountable for meeting their objectives.
Recognize Goal Progress
Keep employees motivated by recognizing the progress they’ve made toward their goals. Celebrating small successes helps people feel encouraged and realize the amazing work they’re doing. A supportive boss can make all the difference in an employee’s growth, so recognize your role and make the most of it.
