I’m a big believer in goals.  Without them people are set adrift in an environment that will quickly fill their time with busyness yet not move them toward achieving corporate objectives.

In this post the author asks us to think about how goals are perceived.  Some of the reader comments following the post also contain interesting thoughts.

I also like this video from MIT.  Anne M. Mulcahy, then CEO of Xerox, talks about aligning the organization around a common set of goals.  What I find significant is the physical actions she took in her role as leader that made the goal a reality for everyone.
