Process and outcome goals work together to help drive overall results.

Goals: Process Versus Outcome

A well-constructed goal can change your life

Goal setting is a topic that gets a lot of attention in the personal and professional development space. It was one of many areas of focus when I was becoming a certified coach, and goals themselves often become key points of importance for leaders of teams and organizations.

It makes sense, right? Goals can help to move people in a certain direction that aligns with the interests of the greater good.

But goals often end up being better in theory than in practice. And part of that often comes from not understanding the difference between outcome and process goals.
