    Recent Review:

    Jamie S. says: "Terrific course! As a manager the biggest demand on my time is my employees and keeping them motivated and on task.  By taking this course and coming up with a methodical way to set and track their goals, my workload just got cut in half, and my employees are much happier as well now that they know exactly what goals they need to meet and are motivated to do so.  Highly recommended course!"

    Why You Should Take This Course:

    An important part of being a manager is giving your employees goals and helping them reach them.  One of the tools to gauge how successful they are is by documenting individual goals and then doing continual performance checks to track their results.  The end result is happier and more productive employees, and a highly functional department.  

    Become a management pro and have your employees on track with setting and reaching goals daily!

    In this course we will start with teaching you goal setting for employees.  From there, we go into the the basics of Excel.  From there, we will start with a blank Excel workbook, and by the end have a fully functional goal setting and tracking template you can use for all your employees.  By using an organized and systematic approach, you will be able to easily hone in on the strengths and weaknesses of your employees, and allow you to tailor a plan to help them reach their goals.  In the end you'll have happier and more efficient employees, which in turns makes your job as a manager easier and your department highly functional.  

    What We Do In The Course:  

    • Teach you the SMARTER method for goals

    • Teach you 7 Tips for effective employee goal setting

    • Teach you the basics of Microsoft Excel (you can skip this lecture if familiar with the software)

    • Start with a blank Excel workbook which will become your goal setting workbook

    • Build the proper structure for setting and tracking goals

    • Format the spreadsheet so it is easy to read and follow

    • Set some sample goals and demonstrate how to track progress
