All successful companies set goals because without them, they have no defined purpose and nothing to strive for; consequently, they stagnate and struggle for meaningful accomplishments. Goals are steppingstones to an end result. Challenging, but attainable goals improve productivity and create a high-performance culture. They foster engagement and encourage a focus on the most important tasks.
A positive attitude can go a long way in helping reach your goals more effectively and easily. Therefore, CLD kick-started the goal-setting process by sending the goal setting participants to a one-day master class on increased Productivity through Behavioral Waste Management which focused primarily on how to build a can-do attitude and how to eliminate wasteful attitudes, behaviors, and thoughts.
The next day, a convoy of 18 cars took a 700 km long journey to Gwadar which was this year’s offsite location for the Annual Goal Setting FY 17-18.
Two complete days were dedicated for brainstorming and coming up with SMART goals for the next fiscal. All the teams made full use of this opportunity and decided their path and destination for the future. Enthusiastic inter as well as intra department arguments were a testimony of the passion for achieving new heights in the upcoming year.
To put a cherry on top, a full day workshop on Negotiation skills was conducted by the maestro Nael Ahmed himself. His personal anecdotes stemming from his vast experience were a treat and source of inspiration and learning for everyone.
