Maria Smith worked as a sales leader for Fortune 500 companies across three different industries, and now she helps leaders, employees, and organizations understand the science and benefits of goal-setting.
In this episode of The Leader Assistant Podcast, Maria talks about aligning your goals with your executive’s goals, balancing short-term and long-term goals, and the power of a shared vision between colleagues.
How are we supposed to lead meaningful lives, understand our ‘why’, and develop the roadmap for our purpose if we don’t take the time to go through the most crucial and vital process to achieving success, thus creating the vision for our future?
