How to create a stretch goal

How to create a stretch goal: Setting Team and Employee Goals
How to create a stretch goal: Setting Team and Employee Goals

A stretch goal pushes people to continue performing. Unlike "commit" goals which must be met, "stretch" goals act as a motivational tool for employees. It should be "Achievable" as a SMART goal, but not have a guarantee of success. More often than not, you will fall short of achieving the stretch goal. Therefore, if you're always hitting your stretch, you're not stretching far enough.
