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...

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.

3C's 'Become an Effective and Confident Trainer' course encouraged me to find my virtual trainer voice. Since the course, I deliver sessions with the security of knowing that I am using tried and tested techniques and the confidence to develop my own activities.  The course modelled the learning involved and Hedda and colleagues on the course were an excellent sounding board for ideas.

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

…3C have had a big impact on how we think about and manage performance.  The interactive development sessions for all managers and introduction of core competencies have really opened our eyes to how we can keep our highly skilled workforce engaged and motivated. Our engineers and project managers are starting to see managing people as a key set of skills that can be learnt and developed, and are enthused about the next stages of the programme.

David Hancox, Chief Operating Officer, Structa LLP

...thank you for the expert work you and your colleagues at 3C have done to help set our objectives and implement our strategy. I did not fully appreciate the benefits until I saw how it has worked out this year. There has been visible change in focus. Much of the success was due to the clear and engaging way you presented the issues to senior staff.
