Setting SMART Goals

  • Resource Type: Publication
  • Posted On: August 16, 2019
  • Audience(s): Leaders and managers

Setting too many goals could mean that your goals are scoped too low and are focused on tasks instead of results. This goal-setting method will help long-term care homes to set realistic goals for students and help measure performance.

When creating your goals, make sure that they are ‘SMART’ – Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, and Time-Bound.
