Effective Goal Setting Workshop

Get SMART about goal setting

Effective Goal Setting Workshop

Effective goals provide the foundation for many management activities. If we get goal setting right we can coach, review and manage performance, develop our people and ultimately add value to the organisation.

Using SMART as a foundation for goal setting, our training workshop will turn SMART goals into actionable, measureable goals clearly linked to organisational objectives.

Content will be tailored to your exact needs.  Up to 12 delegates.


On completion of the workshop, managers will be able to

  • Set effective goals for their team members using a structured approach
  • Identify what makes a stretching and motivating goal
  • Create objectives that add value to the individual and the organisation
  • Align their goals with the strategic plan for the organisation
  • Confidently conduct the goal setting conversation with their team members

Content will be tailored to your exact needs.

For some organisations, we do the work for them!

We use our best practice approach to effective goal setting to create ‘bank of goals’ ready for managers to use – read more about the 3C Goal Bank

Or for an alternative approach to eliminating goals altogether – read more about the 3C Performance Scorecard

Clients say...

Thank you for today, your session was brilliant and exactly what they needed. It exceeded my expectations and to see the room so engaged and involved was an absolute joy . It is a testament to how useful people found today that they were starting to ask if their managers could have something similar.  A great result!

Dr Amanda Maclean, Head of OD, Canterbury Christ Church University

In November 2022 our employee engagement survey showed a marked increase in those agreeing that they understood what was expected of them, they were motivated and engaged.  In the spring of 2021 such results were unimaginable – the scale of cultural change, and sense of empowerment that our new approach to managing performance is having is fantastic.  We couldn’t have done it without the wisdom, experience and support of 3C.

I noticed a real difference in the quality of performance conversations I could have with my team after they had been on the ‘It’s My Conversation’ programme.  Conversations with those who had been on the programme were more meaningful, more constructive and a much better use of both of our time, compared with those who had not. I did the programme myself and found its approach deeply engaging and a very powerful learning experience.

“We couldn’t have designed our new approach to Performance Management without 3C.  They know their stuff, and work from a strong evidence base.  Engaging a large, global organisation is never easy– 3C have shown they understand our challenges and have most importantly helped us re-purpose our performance management to deliver our strategy as well as massively simplify the process for our workforce.”

Bernadette Bruton, Global Talent and OD Director, Aviva plc

"Fantastic use of tech.  Thank you - this was really thought-provoking, and thanks also to the actors Adam and Pippa for making it very engaging!"
