(From PRWEB) -- A new study just released by Leadership IQ, a leadership development and research company, reveals startling contradictions to the goal-setting status quo.
The company studied 4,182 workers from 397 organizations to see what kind of goal-setting processes actually help employees achieve great things. Study participants completed a 35-question assessment about many aspects of their organization's goal-setting processes.
Leadership IQ researchers then used a statistical technique called stepwise multiple regression analysis to discover what kinds of goals were most likely to drive people to high achievement. They discovered the top eight predictors of whether a person's goals were going to help them maximize their potential.
