Personal KPIs: A Holistic Approach to Help You Succeed and Move Your Organization Forward
You’ve likely heard of key performance indicators ("KPIs") used to measure various aspects of operational efficiency and effectiveness, but imagine applying this concept to your personal and career goals.
Setting KPIs for yourself will help keep your personal and professional goals in sight all year while helping you grow in your career, overcome obstacles, and drive your company to the next level.
As you move into this brand-new year, tap into this 60-minute workshop to learn how to create, measure, and track your continuous improvement across five, main categories:
- Professional impact and development
- Personal fulfillment
- Physical and emotional health
- Interpersonal commitments to others
- Your organizational and industry contribution
BONUS: With this workshop, you’ll also receive Michelle Coussens’ KPI worksheet that walks you through step-by-step motivation and accountability for achieving your personal and professional goals.
Personal Evaluation: Assess where you stand across the 5 categories:
- Real talk: Discover the best way to assess your true impact on your organization (going beyond the typical 'strengths' and 'areas for improvement')
- Turning your personal assessment into real, tangible objectives and goals you can practically touch and feel
- Be the solution: Determine the needs of your organization and use your ‘strengths’ to fill the gaps
- Uncover simple ways to incorporate truthful peer perspectives into your self evaluations
Create a personal improvement plan to hit your goals:
- Discover the secret behind microgoals, and why you should learn to live by them
- Mapping milestones: Support your long-term goals with a successful path guaranteed to get you there
- Determine which indicators support YOUR goals - and how to set targets for each
- Align your goals with organizational success: Determine relevant outputs, outcomes, and impacts associated with your goals that also enable your organization to achieve greater success
Measuring and Tracking Your KPIs:
- What data to collect, how to do so, and how often to log and review progress and results, all while avoiding excessive measurement/effort or lost efficiency
- Identify leading (output-oriented) and lagging (input-oriented) indicators that will measure and monitor your progress - and eliminate the possibility of sudden, unexpected derailment
- Determine everyday behaviors and actions to turn intimidatingly large annual goals into smaller, clearer, more tangible objectives and actions
- Maintain a personal dashboard of progress and what you should highlight when communicating to your boss, mentor, employees, peers
- Engage employees: Tap others to objectively determine your progress, while leading by example and giving employees the opportunity to set their own KPIs that contribute to the organization

"Being an assertive communicator which shows respect for both parties. I will also try to break the bad habits by using words that discount my reputation with others." – A. Jones
"The Progressive Women's Leadership program has had a remarkable impact on my management and communication styles. Their unique focus on the woman’s perspective increases the relevance of the courses to a level I have not previously encountered. In addition to teaching practical strategies and tips that I am able to implement immediately, additional suggested materials help continue my learning after a course ends. All of this has made Progressive Women’s Leadership one of the most valuable learning experiences since receiving my MBA. I am looking forward to continuing my leadership education with them." – K. Goldbach
"I gained so many valuable tips that will help me do my job better. In the live presentation I learned how to be an assertive communicator by using the right words, putting the subject line first and not feeling guilty when saying 'no.' There were so many excellent tips that I can implement to be a more effective, confident communicator. In the materials, I learned how to structure thought processes and use a 9 step approach to provide a crisp and clear core idea so that all stakeholders buy in at the end." – B. Pasceri
"The live presentation was great! It gave me skills to be a stronger communicator and how to say 'no.' What also resonated with me was one of the first presentations when we had to sort the words into two categories. It made me realize that I may have one, and am thinking a specific way, but my staff may not be thinking the same way that I am. Very interesting." – W. Adler
"Establishing a personal mission statement is a new concept that I believe will keep me constantly thinking on how to improve. There were so many helpful tips within this course that I have already implemented and am already seeing results. I am extremely pleased with this course." – J. Rios
