The ability to set goals and work towards achieving them is a big component of success. The impact of always-on communications, the growing complexity of global organisations, and the pressures imposed by an ever-changing economy add to a feeling among executives that there are a lot of things that they need to do but are not as effective in handling them as they would like to be. As per a McKinsey study out of 1,500 executives worldwide, only 52 per cent said that the way they spent their time largely matched their organisations’ strategic priorities.
In order to finish everything that needs to be done, you need the ability to look ahead and plan out your high-level strategy while at the same time also dividing large goals into small tasks and priorities must be set. Prioritisation is crucial since it enables you to concentrate first on urgent and vital chores before moving on to lesser priority ones.
You will struggle to complete tasks on time, worry about how you'll get everything crossed off your to-do list, and be less productive if you don't take the time to prioritise. Achieving your goals will become a far-fetched dream.
This session will teach you how to set your goals using the SMART Goals technique and how to prioritise your day to achieve your goals and ace at the workplace.

Attending Evolve helped me thinking to put together an action plan for myself.

Open conversations, sharing of views, learning from experiences of other participants - the three aspects I appreciated most about the Step Up Program
The women leadership program gave all participants a platform to connect with their own selves. I believe this connect and understanding of concepts will help me in the longer run, both personally and professionally
