HR Team was out in force to cheer on Managing Partner Breda Cullen as she took on the Waterside Half Marathon, posting an impressive personal best.
Not only did Breda eat up the scenic Derry-Londonderry run course much quicker than last year, she completed the 13.2 mile run almost 13 minutes faster than she did in 2014.
It will come as no surprise that Breda didn’t simply turn up on the day to see what happens. Unfortunately for everyone who strives to achieve personal bests in sport that’s not the way it works.
To achieve such improvements in performance - whether you’re an elite athlete or someone who continually aims to raise your own bar - you must start by setting a clear goal.
This is equally true when running a business. If there are no goals, then there can be no concrete planning and that ultimately leads to a business falling short of its potential. Setting goals - or key performance indicators as they are commonly known- is a vital factor in good performance management in the workplace.
