ABSTRACT
A field experiment was conducted to compare three goal setting treatments. Measures of four hard performance criteria and two job satisfaction indices were collected. The participation and assigned groups showed significantly more performance and satisfaction improvements than the "do your best" group. However, the improvements began to dissipate six to nine months after training.
