How many years have you resolved to lose weight in the new year? Holiday treats make that a necessity, but there’s something about the calendar reset that gets us all thinking about how we can be better with a fresh start. Changing habits isn’t easy work, and those most successful at reaching their goals dedicate themselves to a strategy that works.
One of the most proven ways to make a change that lasts is to track the goal daily, with measurable benchmarks on habits you’re changing. Relying on your intrinsic motivation and willpower alone will work for a short time, but is unlikely to provide lasting change because your interest will wane or other factors will distract your focus.
Tracking a desired change gives you a daily reminder of your progress to that longterm change, and helps you to see the gradual shift in behavior. This philosophy works on a personal level, and a professional one.
How are you breaking your business’ goals into measurable, trackable benchmarks? How are you communicating your progress to those benchmarks with your team?
Retriever Digital Signage is a great tool for managing daily, trackable check-ins for your benchmarks and visually showcasing your progress to meeting those goals. When you have visibility and clarity on what you’re working toward together, there’s a mutual buy in that happens at all levels of employment. Clear expectations and vision gives your team a chance to band together as you progress to your big picture goals.
Moreover, modeling a great strategy for goal tracking in your professional atmosphere gives your team the tools they need to attain their personal goals as well, which Human Resources professionals know matters immensely to their contentment levels in and out of work.
