Some women have achieved the seven-figure mark in their businesses, and there are others who have reached the seven-figure compensation mark in the corporate world as well. Being successful is not an impossibility. While learning how to set the right goals is a crucial factor in your success, taking action to pursue your ambition is another thing.

I’ll also share some of the things these extraordinary women did to attain their success and provide tips that you can implement and adapt so you can lead the path to your victory.

Nov 2, 2017

Goal-setting is one of the essential processes that do you as a leader to set the course toward achieving the vision that you have for yourself and your organization. While many leaders have grand images of what they want for their businesses, many either don’t have the right goals on their list or don’t know how to set them up for success. If there is a clear link between your goals and your achievements, you want to make sure you’re spending the time, money, and effort to execute the right intentions.

Today, I’m explaining the difference between your goals and your vision and the connection between these two different concepts. I also describe each of the three distinct goal-setting processes that can help you set the right goals for your business and your career, share practical examples to illustrate each one, and point out how these methods are linked to one another.

 

Learning how to set effective goals is the core psychological skill of high performance.

 

Today on the Fierce Feminine Leadership Podcast:

  • Explaining the 100 One’s Concept and how to do it
  • One of the hardest questions to answer when setting goals
  • Applying the Intention, Attention, Out-tention Principle
  • Describing the Quarterly Critical Approach
  • Why people get stuck
  • How the Daily Three Method works

 

Advice for Fierce Feminine Leaders:

  • Read your 100 Ones as often as possible.
  • Don’t just think about the business you’re in, but also nurture the business you’re becoming.
  • The most significant successes happen when you link your daily activities to your Quarterly Critical goals.
