To start, writing down goals increases your chances in achieving them by nearly 80 percent, according to goal planning company Weekdone. In addition, sharing your goals with others and measuring your progress weekly are also important.

Although, when it comes to the details, choosing which goal-setting method matches your leadership style can be a little tricky. If you’re an “autocratic leader,” where you make your own decisions, don’t listen to others and trust your gut, then your best goal-setting style is likely setting goals that you believe are right and demanding that others meet them. To the contrary, if you’re a “visionary,” then your goal-setting style is likely setting long-term goals in collaboration with others.
