Tips For Setting Goals For Team Members You Manage
Here are some great tips for how to set goals from the book, One Page Talent Management, by Marc Effron and Miriam Ort:

Goals Aligned with Self-Interest Motivate the Most – Self-interest is a powerful motivational tool. The more likely we are to feel good when a goal is accomplished, the more motivational that goal will be.
Specific Goals Create Higher Performance Than Urging, “Do Your Best.”
