Getting SMART with Objective Setting


High-impact training materials that will help your delegates get to grips with setting operational and behavioural objectives. The content also covers setting stretch objectives and aligning objectives to business goals, setting individuals and organisations up for success.




Lots of businesses talk about SMART objective setting. Most of us understand it’s the way things get done, on time and to expected standards. Yet, despite this, not many organisations acknowledge that it can be tough setting appropriate operational objectives. It can be even harder to set behavioural objectives. Training Central’s ‘Getting SMART with Objective Setting’ is here to help plug those challenges.

Our high-impact objective setting training session gives step-by-step guidance on how to establish objectives that align with business goals, while simultaneously stretching your colleagues to perform.

The session will walk delegates through SMART objective setting, showing how the operational side of their roles (the ‘what’) fits together with the behaviours they should be demonstrating in the delivery of their objectives (the ‘how’).
