Did you know that 92% of individuals who set goals do not achieve their goals? This statistic makes goal setting seem unimportant. Yet, when a goal is written in a purposeful and visual way, our wishes can become reality. Creating goals that are meaningful and achievable builds confidence and supports increased productivity for ourselves and for others. Goals give us focus and help us to ensure that the work we are doing not only aligns with our basic responsibilities but also supports a vision or plan. When we put timelines on our goals, we prioritize what matters most. Use the Pinnacle Group SMART Goal Worksheet and make a commitment to achieving your goals and to achieve everything you need and want for your organization.
Rapport is critical for creating and maintaining strong work relationships. Because we are pulled in many directions throughout the day, we may need to actively pursue moments to interact with others. Positive work relationships foster loyalty and trust and provide a great platform for collaborating.
Check-in on your rapport building approach by completing the Pinnacle Group – Building Rapport Self Assessment and find ways to improve your work relationships.

Who inspires you? Why? Who do you inspire?
We impact one another daily yet we don’t always take the time to let them know how they have helped us. Your colleague may have shared a quick tip, offered a new idea, or suggested an alternative approach to a task. This simple exchange can improve your results.
When we call attention to these learning moments and let others know how they have impacted us, everyone wins. Take a minute and acknowledge those who have inspired you. Join the conversation on LinkedIn and add #WhoInspiresYou. Click on the image to see how a conversation might go.
