Questions to Help You Delineate Your Goals

Your next step is to do a personal inventory: but what exactly are your goals? You need a clear direction in mind; where you want to see yourself and your team members heading . This helps you maximize your efforts and help figure out what you need from your team.
These questions include:
- What’s my vision of the future?
- What’s my definition of success?
- How do I want others to perceive me in the future — my boss, peers, family, employees, customers, clients?
Take the time to think carefully about your own goals — personal as well as professional. Once you’re certain of what you want, you’ll be better prepared to help your employees decide what they want
