Ways Goal Setting could be used to motivate your performance One of my favorite sayings is “Man plans, God laughs. ” It’s ironic that would be my favorite saying since I’ve always been a planner. When I was a child and people would ask me what wanted to be when I grew up, I always had an answer. That answer changed significantly as time went on, but one thing never did, I always had a plan. Planning for our futures is very important even if those plans may change. One way in which we plan for the future is by setting goals. A goal is a target, and a target is set to be achieved.
Everyone has their own goals in life; whether it is a short-term or a long-term goal we all set out to accomplish our dreams and obtain our goals. Goal setting is a big part of our culture. Everyone is encouraged to create a vision for their ideal life and to set personal, health and career goals to achieve that vision. Having goals set encourages people to push forward and strive for success. Reaching your desired locals, will give and individual the feeling of accomplishment, the outlook to become successful to achieve their dreams and provide for their families.
Goal Setting is the process of specifying desired outcomes toward which individuals, teams, departments, and organizations will strive and is intended to increase organizational efficiency and effectiveness (Helloing ; Slouch, 2011). It is an essential tool to clarify and to identify the roles and perception of the organization by the implementation of performance objectives which would improve work performance as well as job satisfaction. While goal-setting is one f the most important motivational tools, it will also help my performance in my new position as Director of Clinical Services.
Motivation is the state or condition of being motivated.

A few goals that I will set to motivate my performance would be Goals regulate effort. Not only do goals direct our attention, they motivate us to act (Helloing ; Slouch). As Director of Clinical Services setting a goal that I can set out to accomplish will keep my attention to act on putting my words into action.

It was a powerful process, thinking about my ideal future, and motivating me to turn my vision into a reality. The goal that I set to be Director was a challenge, I saw it very clear and challenging but I knew that it would lead to higher performance which would give me more motivation and self-confidence.

Even if we’re not always thinking about this stress, it can be like a background soundtrack playing in our lives. It’s hard to avoid stress these days with so many competing demands for your time and attention. Stress is something that we all encounter from everyday life; going through the many challenges from family, finances, work to relationships. We tend to feel like everyone is counting on us to deal with every problem that sometimes we cannot fix. We all want to feel safe and secure, but as we get older, we realize that we cannot always count on things being the same.
We experience different incidents in our lives that turn our world upside down and cause us to feel stress. Most of these incidents in our lives has turned our world upside down and cause us to feel stress. Most of these incidents we cannot control, others we can control to a certain degree. Stress is the excitement, feeling of anxiety, and or physical tension that occurs when the demands or stresses placed on an individual are thought to exceed the person’s ability to cope (Helloing & Slouch, 2011 The definition of stress describes me in the way I deal with stressful situations.
My stress comes upon me at a slow pace; it builds up overtime and grows more intense by the day. I tend to shut down, keep to myself and try to deal with the problems by finding a positive situation. Sometimes that does not work, I find myself snapping at others, having a bad attitude and just feel disgusted often; but I know that I cannot bring that into my new position. As Director of Clinical Services I know that I will be faced with very stressful situations that will have my back pushed up against a wall, and I will not be able to make everyone happy.
According to Illus. and Paltrier, I came across a few steps I can take to manage he steps associated with my new position: 1) Identify the cause of the stress, and choose a response that will give me the power instead of me becoming powerless. 2) Make a plan. I can write out a plan with attainable goals and a time line for reaching those goals. 3) Take one step at a time. Things may get overwhelming, but remember: the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. 4) Shake it off.
I will inhale deeply, count to five then exhale. Start thinking positive thoughts, and getting more exercise on a regular basis will keep the stress levels down and your mind clear of negative thoughts. Learning how to remain calm in times of stress will not only make things go more smoothly, it can also help me lead a healthier, happier more fulfilling life and career. Nonverbal and Cultural barriers to Communication Being Director of Clinical Services, I will be among varies ethnicities and ages dealing with the elderly.
I have to be aware of different cultures and the way they communicate that may be offensive to them. Communication is the exchange of meaning: it is my attempt to let you know what I mean. Communication is one of those things that are always there to be worked on. Therefore, it has a tendency to fall back in the list of priorities when you are busy and forced to focus on tasks that are urgent or time sensitive. The consequences to not addressing communication issues are often not felt until the situation gets out of control.
Effective communication with people of different cultures is especially challenging. Cultures provide people with ways of thinking, ways of seeing, hearing, and interpreting the world. Thus the same words can mean different things to people from different cultures, even when they talk the same language. Communicating without using language is difficult even when it is with someone of the same culture, but communicating in a working environment, people have different religious and social structures they need to find ways to understand each other.
Communication includes sending both verbal messages (words) and nonverbal messages (tone of voice, facial expression, behavior, and physical setting). Understanding the cultural rules of etiquette is important when it comes to nonverbal communication. I would address nonverbal and cultural barriers to communication by the interaction we will have with one another from our DOD language to the eye contact we make, the gestures and lastly to showing emotion. I would simply encourage my team to be aware of the choice of words and the tone of voice when speaking with patients.
Many cultural differences take the form of nonverbal communications. A discussion of “body language” would not be complete without addressing the many nonverbal customs, signals, and gestures that are part of cross-cultural communication (Ting-Toomey, 1999). Even though we are all human, we have to take into account of our surroundings and cultures that make up our beautiful world. We may not all be room the same country or state but we have all been taught respect, and dignity no matter your background.
We will work with one another and have relationships with each other that will bring each culture to be able to work together as a team. Once we all grasp this concept then the world will be a better place for all.
