  • Write them down and keep them visible so that you both refer to them throughout the year
  • Ensure they are achievable and have clear steps towards achievement identified – make it easy to get started with one small step at a time
  • Focus them wherever possible on employee strengths to maximise their, and therefore your business, successes
  • Aim to set goals that exciting, inspiring and challenging to engage employees fully
  • Measure achievement and track progress regularly throughout the year
