New Year, New Beginnings and New Resolutions.
Iberia Consulting is one of the companies that write resolutions down every year, the team comes together and writes down a list of SMART objectives, that the team finds important for the company to achieve.
The best thing is not always the result, but the road towards the result and the fact that every member in the team is dedicated to contributing because we have all worked on the definition of the objective and we all see the importance of why it should happen.
At the end of each year, the company also works with a reward system. When all the objectives have been met, the team receives a bonus in the form of commission. This has proved to work, especially it boosts team morale.
What are “SMART” objectives and how can you link them to have new year´s resolutions that matter to you and your business?
Specific: you have to be specific when it comes to your Resolution, what specific “skill” achievement or goal do you have in mind to achieve for this year? For example,
“We want to be present at 10 different Trade Shows and expand our knowledge to 4 different additional industries”.
Measurable: you have to be able to measure it, when can a goal be measured? We want our team to collect at least 250 new business cards at every trade show they attend. This means some active and more speed networking while getting yourself introduced by acquaintances at the same time. The fun part is that after every show, cards counting is one of the essentials.
Action-oriented: As a team, we want to stay active and our goals need to reflect that. Action creates success and our objective should always be towards creating more success.
Results-oriented: Since we are talking about our business objectives, we need to focus on results, results that should be improved. Making the company better every year and making sure our clients notice that we are working on improving their results as well.
Time-based: Our goals and objectives should reflect our companies’ purposes. Our promise to our clients to deliver and to deliver on time is our big aim. This also goes for the companies’ aspirations, we should be able to deliver our new year’s resolution in one year.
We wish for everyone to have their goals achieved in 2019, May it be a year of abundant success.
