Why Have Leader Evaluations Based on Objective Goals? • Clearly connects the goals of the organization to individual leader • Provides prioritization roadmap for leader • Reduces unnecessary work and duplication of efforts because clear expectations are set • Keeps leaders focused on what is really important • Allows senior leader to continuously monitor leader performance • Provides for organizational agility • Competencies do not guarantee desired outcomes
What is goal alignment? Insuring that individual leader activities are consistent with the goals of the organization.

Goal Development Tips Develop quantifiable goals.
Goal Scales 5 = Stretch 4 = Partial Stretch 3 = Goal 2 = Partial Accomplishment 1 = No Accomplishment
Example Goal with Rating Scale Goal Increase the number of visits to 200 Rating Scale 5 is ≥ 250 4 is 225 to 249 3 is 200 to 224 2 is 150 to 199 1 is ≤ 149
LEM Score Distribution 3 3 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 5 Target Opportunity Excellent
Example LEM Results Average Score = 3.07 0 1 2 3 4 5
Goal Development Tips Develop quantifiable goals. Use language that everyone understands. Connect goals to purpose. Fewer, rather than more goals, are better.
Goal Development Tips – Cont. It is not always practical to have a goal under each pillar. Goals should be aggressive yet realistic. Focus on results, not tactics or projects.
Goal or Tactic? • Conduct employee evals on time • Improve staff productivity • Round on 100% of inpatients • Attend all leadership development sessions • Pass OSHA inspection
Define how much time goal must be sustained • For fiscal year-to-date (FYTD) • For the month of December • For the 4th quarter • For last 6 months of the year
SMART Goals are • Specific • Measurable • Attainable • Realistic • Time-bound
What might not fit as goals: • Standards of performance • Subjective and vague statements • Tactics to achieve goals • Maintaining regulatory compliance • Routine job activities
Middle Management Common Goals(Examples) • Budget • Patient Perception of Care • Interdepartmental Satisfaction • Employee Engagement • Core Measures • Patient Fall Rate
Tools of Accountability • Leader Performance Evaluation • Leader Report Card • 90 Day Plan
