A goal properly set is halfway reached, as famously said by Zig Ziglar. Setting goals is indeed crucial for achieving success and avoiding the constant state of reacting to urgent matters. Without a clear plan, valuable time can be wasted on non-priorities, leaving one exhausted and unaccomplished at the end of the day.
However, setting effective goals is not always easy. Many individuals struggle to transform their vague aspirations into actionable objectives. Recognizing this challenge, our team invests significant time during onboarding to teach the skill of goal setting to our new Rhythm software clients.
Our most popular blog posts are “examples” of different goals (KPI examples, OKR examples, etc). It is no surprise that people seek such examples as a starting point for crafting their own goals. It is far simpler to modify and adapt an existing example to fit specific circumstances than to create a goal from scratch.
With the assistance of our AI-powered software, generating goal statements becomes even easier. You can simply input your general idea of what needs to be accomplished, and our AI coach, leveraging two decades of experience in helping companies achieve their goals, will propose suitable goals for you to consider. These suggestions are specific and clear, serving as a foundation that you can customize to suit your specific requirements.
AI-Powered KPI Assistance
For example, if you have the desire to begin tracking a KPI for your support team around the number of support tickets resolved, you can type that in, and our AI Coach will generate suggestions:
Maybe the suggestions aren’t perfect, but maybe they prompt you to think about the problem you are really trying to solve with this KPI. Is it about the number of tickets, or is it about the ratio of open tickets to resolved tickets? Or the customer’s satisfaction with the resolution of tickets?
If none of these are along the right lines, the coach will continue making suggestions until you find something that works. After you select the goal, you can modify the wording to fit your needs.
AI-Powered Priority Writing
Goals that are not number-driven can be even more challenging to define. For example, our onboarding team often sees new teams who are still learning best practices for goal-setting create priorities that look like this: “Hiring.”
Our AI coach can turn a generate category like this one into a specific, measurable goal:
Each of the suggestions includes a verb, a specific number, and a far more clear picture of what you might mean by “Hiring.”
Taking it a step further, our AI coach will even suggest Red-Yellow-Green success criteria for your goal. This critical component allows you to clearly define what constitutes success or failure, enabling you to envision the desired outcome and align your team's efforts accordingly.
At Rhythm, we have always strived to develop user-friendly and intelligent software that delivers substantial value to our customers.
