“Cadets should understand the importance of goal setting to an organization and how to use goals to guide the Corps throughout the year. This is an outstanding leadership tool and part of putting our classroom leadership education into practice!” – HQ AFJROTC
HOW TO: MEASURING GOAL ACCOMPLISHMENT
Goals are meant to guide cadet corps operations throughout the year. Therefore, properly developed goals will emphasize what is important to the cadet corps (they built the goals, right?). Cadets must continuously measure how they are doing toward achieving the desired outcome of each goal. Mid-course changes in operations may be needed to accomplish each goal. Key notes to remember:
Cadet staff should tie each activity to the unit’s goals.
Ensure all cadets know the goals. Posting them in a prominent place and talk about them on a regular basis.
The corps commander should assign members of the senior staff to be responsible to keep records for each goal.
Periodic special staff meetings should be conducted to determine the progress toward each goal. Depending on the progress toward each goal, changes or corrections may be needed to achieve the goal.
No later than 10 April, the cadet commander will ensure the “Results Evaluation” statements are posted in “WINGS.”
