Tactic#1: Introduce an effective goal-setting strategy

For example, the 'people-centric' model is a very popular model as it's used by a wide range of companies.

In this top-down model, goals are set by the CEO, and are then aligned to the company's strategic objectives. From this, the CEO's direct reports set their own performance goals, each of which is linked in some way to the CEO's plan. This process repeats itself down the company until every individual employees' goals are linked to the goals of their supervisors.

Tactic#3: Make sure your employees' goals are correctly aligned to your organisations overall business goals

In order to achieve goal alignment, you must first communicate strategic business objectives across the entire company so that all the employees understand what the company is trying to achieve. This communication can be done verbally, visually or as written communication.

Encourage employees to gain an understanding of other departments' goals, other than their own, as this can greatly assist them in getting a
more holistic picture of the entire company's goals, which in turn can lead to goal alignment.
