We’re halfway through 2022. It may be hard to believe, but here we are.

Think back to the end of last year, moving to the beginning of this year. We were focused on all the new KPIs, targets and targets for 2022. As the year progressed, the original vision you saw for your company’s progress may have been clouded by market shifts, staff shortages, supply disruptions and general economic changes.

Conversely, you may experience significant momentum toward the goals you want your teams to achieve. You may even be ahead of your goal and want to keep your progress.

Mid-year is the perfect time to review, reset, or revise your goals, as there’s still plenty of time to turn a ship around or speed up to exceed your original projections. It’s also a good time for leaders to think about what they need to recalibrate. So, here are some questions to guide your semi-annual assessment and ensure 2022 is your best year yet.

Are your goals currently realistic and attainable?

While it’s good to be ambitious, it’s crucial to set goals that you can realistically achieve. If you find yourself not making progress with your goals or if they no longer seem achievable, it may be time to reset them. To do this effectively, consider what might be holding you back and whether there are changes you can make to help you achieve your goals. For example, if you’re struggling with staffing shortages, a goal that relied on full staffing may need to be reworked to fit your current staff size and work capabilities.

Do you have the right people in the right place to achieve your goals?

When the right people are effectively placed within your organization, the sky is the limit! In my last article for 2021, I shared a list of ways executives can prepare for the success of 2022, and assessing your staff and their roles made the list for a reason. Good talent can sometimes be misplaced, so use this half year to evaluate whether your employees are a good fit for the best roles for their talents. Team meetings, one-on-one conversations, and performance reviews can help you identify workforce shifts that make everyone feel more aligned with their work and eager to advance your company’s mission and vision.

Do you have current or updated SOPs?

Having good standard operating procedures goes hand in hand with having the right staff. Having SOPs in place will keep your business running smoothly, even if there are disruptions.

Recently I experienced first-hand how important it is to have a strong team and clear work procedures when I take time off to care for a family member. My team and I set up procedures and a communication plan detailing when we would check in and what decisions needed my input. This way my teams knew when they could or should have access to me. Trusting in my leaders and systems freed me to be present for my family’s plight without interrupting my company’s initiatives.

Do you make time outside of work for important aspects of your life?

First, I would say that people in C-suite positions generally enjoy working because we are driven by innovation and leadership. However, we can benefit from making time for rest, prioritizing other parts of our lives, and recharging.

Summer is coming and the summer months are a slower season for many businesses. Take advantage of the summer delay to take some much-needed time off. If you’re feeling the urge to keep up with work initiatives, think about the fresh energy you’ll have after a family vacation or even a few days off at home. Work is important, but taking the time to refresh your mind can help you reach your 2022 goals faster.

Are you prepared for setbacks?

An important lesson I have learned in life is to expect the unexpected. If you have the right plans, work with the best teams, and create the clearest SOPs, you can’t avoid what can’t be planned. Your goals don’t have to be all or nothing, achieved or failed. For example, if you miss a deadline that you and your team have set, don’t give up completely. Just regroup, recalibrate and try again. You can continue to achieve your goals by being persistent and flexible, even when things don’t always go according to plan.

Finally, don’t forget to celebrate your achievements along the way and keep your staff informed about your collective progress. Making progress toward goals is a great feeling, so be sure to take the time to enjoy your successes and share them with those who made the progress possible. Reset when needed through the second half of the year, and you can make sure you’re on track to hit your best year ever!
