Setting And Attaining Your Personal Managerial Goals

This is all about setting down your managerial philosophy: it defines the type of manager that you want to be, what you want to accomplish and what principles of values drive you in your career.

A key learning point here is built around reflecting upon setbacks and failure. When a setback comes along do not just blame everyone and everything around you but be honest with yourself and identify what happened and why, reflecting and thinking carefully about the possibility of re-evaluating your goals.

Your Goals are broken down into 5 distinct areas:

  1. Be SMART: set goals that are Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound. The more accurately you define your Goals the greater the chance of achieving them.
  2. See the Future: set out a vision of what it will be like when you achieve your goals. The vision that you set of a successful and profitable future will be a powerful motivating force.
  3. Evaluate Progress: reward yourself with small wins. When you achieve incremental progress towards your goals it is important to celebrate that accomplishment and use this to spur you on.
  4. Get Support: develop a group of people who can help you to achieve your goals as this is a strong motivational force in driving you forward.
  5. Personalise your Goals: setting and owning your goals is essential if they are to be achieved. Goals that are set for you and not important to you are rarely achieved!

Remember to review your Goals on a regular basis with a healthy dose of reality and critical self-analysis.

Good Luck!
