Importance of Setting Goals for your Small Business

Successful business owners set goals. Without them, they have no defined purpose and nothing clear to strive for. Consequently, they get trapped and struggle for meaningful accomplishments. Goals are stepping stones to an end result. They must be present in every business plan and working strategically towards them must become a regular part of ongoing business operations.

Setting Goals for your Small Business

Increases Motivation

Business goals give your team something to strive for in their daily tasks. Most people strive to be successful, but having a specific standard that makes up success will really motivate them to strive for excellence. If goals are tied to other external awards, such as team recognition or perks, it can further improve the motivation level.


Improves Employee Worth

Including employees in the goal-setting process will increase their support for the project at hand and the business as a whole. It tells them their contribution is valued and important, thus giving them a sense of ownership. As a result, the goals are no longer only the business owner’s; they are the goals of everyone in the team.


Strengthens Group Cohesion

Many business goals cannot be accomplished unless all the members of the team work together as a whole to reach their goals. This can improve group cohesion and collaboration when employees realise the goals will only be reached when teamwork is present. Business owners can further impose this through team recognition or rewards given when the business meets its goals.


Limiting Stress

Without goals to guide you, you may develop a tendency to leap from one task to another instead of focusing on the most important needs of your business. Consequently, you may come to realise that your team productivity is suffering and you will be wondering what your team is actually accomplishing, creating a sense of worry.


Provides Focus

When businesses set goals for employees, it shows the team the organisation’s priorities. Employees then know what to focus on in the coming month or year, thus concentrating on projects and other tasks as they consider how their work will affect those goals. It also provides focus for business owners when deciding on major projects and how to best divide tasks among the team.
