Goal Setting

Setting goals and priorities at the beginning of each performance cycle builds the foundation for successful performance. It is a collaborative process between you and your supervisor. You initiate the process by completing a Goal Agreement (DOC) and submitting it to your supervisor for review. Ideally, your goals connect in some way to the GW Values (PDF) and Strategic Plan (PDF), your school or division’s goals, and/or your department or team priorities.

Working through this process helps you clarify what is most important and positions you for an objective review at the end of your cycle.
