DfTc Staff only, Ignite Workshop - Objective Setting Workshop
Fri 21 April 2017, 09:30 – 17:00 BST
This 3-hour workshop will help you, as a line manager, to have structured and useful objective-setting conversations with your team members.
Good objectives give structure to performance conversations throughout the year and can help motivate people, and encourage better performance. By setting specific objectives, you'll get more engagement from your team and help to motivate them to achieve their goals.
During this workshop you will work with others to develop and practise your objective-setting skills, using practical scenarios and a range of exercises and discussions. The focus will be on helping you to apply these skills when you return to your workplace.
Please record your thoughts on the two questions below and bring them with you ready to discuss at the workshop.
- Think about the last time you agreed objectives with someone you managed. What worked well and what could have been better?
- Think about an objective you will set with one of your team members:
- How are they currently performing?
- What do they need to do to improve?
- What support might they need?
Please also bring a copy of your performance appraisal template with you.
Note: Some of the learning activities in this topic use digital media, for which you will need specific computing requirements. For more information, please refer to the ‘Terms and Conditions’ tab on the next page and read the technical specification before you purchase.

Create SMART (specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-phased) objectives with the people you manage
Agree stretching objectives that are motivating, and help your team member to develop
Help your team members to understand how their own objectives contribute to those of the team and department
Share with your team what good looks like.
