What is Your Teams Goal?

How often are you asked what your goals are and you cant give a clear, concise answer?
How often do you ask your manager this same question?
As a manager, how often do you ask yourself?

This poses a very interesting point, as in this day and age, no one in the world is as important to us as ourselves and in a work scenario, those we work with, yet a large proportion of us are unclear as to the direction we or the company is headed!

A Japanese Proverb states “Vision without action is a daydream. Action without vision is a nightmare.”

Ok, so I need to set some goals for myself and my team, what’s the best way to do it?

When setting a goal, no matter what for, check it meets the widely used S.M.A.R.T criteria:


S
Specific – No matter how big or small, the more details the better!

M - Measurable – Put a measurement in place, without this how will you know when you have reached your goal or if you are on track?

AAchievable – Whilst making them challenging, we must make sure our goals are actually achievable!

RResults driven – this goes without saying, all goals should be results driven for you, the company and those directly affected by the outcome.

TTimeline – having a deadline helps to measure expectations as well as celebrate milestones along the way.

As we move into 2011 and you begin your forecast for the year ahead, I ask you, what is your goal for the year, what is your teams goal and how will you know when it happens?

Can you turn your team into a championship team?

Corporate Team Building At Merribrook Gets Creative

Team building activities in Perth and across Western Australia have just got a little more creative.

Introducing Merribrooks Creative Team Art Workshop.

Discover the depth of your teams creativity and talent with an art workshop at your next teambuilding day.

From a blank canvas to a creative piece of art, teams experience the fun of working together to create a masterpiece. There is a role for all to contribute and overcome the daunting prospect of putting paint onto canvas. The results are surprisingly excellent and have often been framed for the office wall.

Our Art facilitators have extensive experience working with corporate groups to challenge their creativity, have fun and uncover a wealth of talent in the teams.

Working in teams, participants are given basic instructions in the use of the materials and ways to create different effects on the canvas . Preliminary sketches and ideas representing a theming topic, team values or future vision are put onto canvas by the team, to create the painting. A large team may create one very long art piece with smaller teams completing their section of the canvas and integrating with the team on each side.

A great journey for any team. Book your creative experience today!
