As our whole economy moves to better position itself locally and across our country…Goal-Setting individually and organizationally has never been more important.  So when I read this quote from Orrin Woodward, an author/speaker and management expert, I knew it would be ideal for this week’s TRIPLE III TIME message.

“A goal is a planned conflict against the status quo.  By helping teammates develop believable and achievable goals, and the corresponding rewards for achieving them the leader can inspire his/her teammates without micromanaging!”

Did you re-read that first line?  “A goal is a planned conflict against the status quo.”  When I read that I thought immediately about:

  • Innovation & Creativity
  • Private & Public Entrepreneurship
  • Pilot/Demonstration Projects
  • Always A Better Way Vision Statements

Truly I can not think of a more determined and change-driven way of saying its OK to try something new and different!

Today I believe there exists a wide-open opportunity to use Goal-Setting as a motivator for every employee to offer up a new idea or two.  If the Goal-Setting discussion process is facilitated correctly by leadership…the opportunity for personnel and company growth could be tremendous!
