Goal Setting Tip Sheet

When setting a goal, it is important to align it with any relevant:

  • Organisational, systemic, community and/or cultural expectations and imperatives


  • Standards, competency and capability frameworks.

This is particularly the case when goals are integral to professional learning, performance development and accreditation programs.

This process informs the development of goals and triangulates them to ensure their validity, integrity and utility.

Goal alignment can also be promoted through coaching/mentoring and reflective practice.

Goal alignment provides confidence you are investing in the right area of development.
