Goal setting can help focus our plans for learning, growth and development and support us to get where we need to go! We’re more likely to achieve our goals if we’re invested in them, yet many of us rely on other people setting them for us as part of a personal development plan or annual review process. 
This virtual workshop supports participants to learn how to set meaningful and stretching goals for themselves and others.  

Importantly, this workshop shows participants how to set goals that form part of regular discussions and updates throughout the year, positioning goal setting as an ongoing process and not one to be forgotten between review periods.   
Finally, participants will have the opportunity to apply learning to your own goals, so that you are fully equipped with the tools you need to start setting meaningful goals in the workplace.
