Systemic consultation and goal setting
|Title:||Systemic consultation and goal setting||Authors:||Carr, Alan||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/5323||Date:||1993||Abstract:||Over two decades of empirical research conducted within a positivist framework has shown that goal setting is a particularly useful method for influencing task performance in occupational and industrial contexts. The conditions under which goal setting is maximally effective are now clearly established. These include situations where there is a high level of acceptance and commitment, where goals are specific and challenging, where the task is relatively simple rather than complex, and where progress is regularly monitored. Participation in goal setting has also been found to be vital for enhancing performance. Setting both individual and group goals improves performance providing both sets of goals are compatible. In this paper these findings, constructed though the lens of goal theory, are considered from a social-constructionist perspective and their implications for systemic practice are outlined.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Keywords:||Family therapy; Goal setting; Positivist framework||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
