Description: This presentation discusses setting goals for staff. Goals can set a course of action for staff and give rationale for decision making on how staff development is presented, funded, and assessed. Organizational goals serve four basic functions: providing guidance and direction, facilitating, planning, motivating and inspiring employees, and helping organizations assess performance for continuous improvement. If goals are not well defined they are meaningless. With the fast pace of change in libraries, while goals are the ends toward which your efforts will be directed, they may need to be changed from year to year or more frequently. This presentation will talk about writing SMART goals that are clear and achievable and that meet the needs of the organization and its individuals for training.
