Leadership Reflections

2008 is coming to a close. The new year will soon be upon us. It is a good time to reflect.
  • What have you as a leader accomplished this year, both personally and professionally?
  • What are your goals for 2009?
It has been a difficult year financially for many businesses and if the economists are correct, 2009 will continue to be a challenge. It is not time to despair, however, but time to take a step back and consider whether you are on the right track. Are you doing work you love? Is your business strategically set up for managing during these troubling times? Is your personal life fulfilling? Are you attending to your physical health? What are you doing to manage the stress?

Down times can also provide opportunities---opportunities for innovative solutions...for redirection and renewal....for connecting more with what is really important to you.

And those are my 2008 reflections, coming from a true optimist!
