Replied to Stop Setting SMART Goals by Dan Haesler (Cut Through Coaching & Consulting)
Next time you're asked to set a goal why not consider other approaches - for example, an Appreciative Inquiry - to explore the possibilities first. Then, once you've settled on a goal, you can use the SMART acronym to check how well you can articulate your next action.
I agree Dan, SMART goals (or SMARTER goals) can be limiting. In recent years I have chosen to instead focus on one word, based on the work of Kath Murdoch and Edna Sackson. I find this allows for a breadth of opportunities, rather than limiting things.
