This guidebook is about changing the way you think about setting goals. It is about identifying goals that are important and meaningful. Creating those kinds of goals means taking stock of your values—what you believe and how you act to carry out those beliefs—in five key areas of your life: career, self, family, community, and spirit. Once you’ve identified what’s really important you can create goals that will help you improve and carry out those values through your actions. The goals you create will be SMART: specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timed. Setting meaningful goals will reward you with real progress toward success in all areas of your life.

This guidebook describes three strategies to use as you continue to develop your capacity to lead: seeking challenging assignments at work and away from the job, training for specific skills, and building relationships with people who can support your efforts.

Whatever level you occupy in an organization, from line manager to senior executive to team leader, the skill of giving meaningful and effective feedback is an important component to helping other people develop and to getting the job done. Creating and delivering a specific message based on observed performance is key to effective feedback. Your feedback should enable the receiver to walk away understanding exactly what he or she did and what impact it had on you. When the result is this specific and this direct, there is a better chance that the person getting the feedback will be motivated to begin, continue, or stop behaviors that affect performance. This guidebook explains how to deliver effective feedback by showing how to build your message, when to deliver it, and how to communicate it. By using the methods and examples in this guidebook, your feedback becomes a tool for development—for others and for yourself.
