A Mini Goal is a short-term goal a manager can set for their direct reports to create greater focus and accountability. Mini Goals are a powerful tool to motivate your team members and help them achieve their goals. Use them to:

  • Help teams and teammates chip away at longer-term goals
  • Track and create accountability for short-term objectives set in conversations you have with your team members
  • Drive focus on your most important metrics

You can set a Mini Goal on any metric you track. You must assign a due date, set a goal, and include a message for any Mini Goal you create.

How to create a Mini Goal

1. Open the dashboard
2. Filter the dashboard by paths to find a metric
3. Select a metric you want to create a Mini Goal for

5. Add a number target (e.g. daily, weekly, or monthly goal)
