Reviewing How to Develop Objectives and Goals

Duration: 20 to 25 minutes.

In this exercise, you will use your knowledge of creating objectives and goals to answer the following questions.

Keep in mind this scenario, from the previous lesson: You are working as an ID in your organization, and the head of human resources has come to your group with a specific need for the group to develop some training on working with difficult coworkers.

  1. What is the difference between a goal and an objective?
  2. In our HR training scenario, one of the goals is: Given a situation when the learner has to work with a difficult coworker, the learner will be able to resolve conflict and maintain a peaceful working environment. What are some objectives that could be derived from this goal?


  1. A goal is more general, a statement regarding the intention of the instruction, whereas an objective is more detailed, describing how the learning will affect learners.
  2. Answers will vary but objectives might identify how difficult personalities affect the workplace, describe the communication process, and list ways to handle conflict when it occurs.
