Goal design for individuals does not always fit for teams.
A classic recommendation for setting goals is to ensure they're SMART: Specific | Measurable | Agreed Upon | Reasonable | Time bound
Specific goals in Teams: What's the goal? Learning or performance
So don't be specific for learning goal in managing your team, set a general team learning goal.

What happens in teams? Depends on goal orientation of the team.
If you want to set difficult goals, cultivate and embrace team learning orientation.
