A. Managing Patient-Centered Care

1. Create ONE leadership goal that is in the SMART goal format.
S – Specific (Who besides YOU is involved in the goal, what is YOUR goal, where will it take place?)
M – Measurable (How are YOU going to achieve the goal?) Be specific with measureable outcomes.
A – Attainable (What resources and/or experts are available to assist YOU with attaining YOUR goal?)

T – Time bound (What specific dates or weeks will YOU accomplish each task related to your leadership goal?)

–  Example NOT in SMART format: I will learn how to be a manager. This goal is lofty, not measurable, and unattainable in the time allotted, probably not realistic, and not time bound.
