Biggest Takeaways You Don't Want To Miss:
- Take time to evaluate and plan for the year ahead. You don’t have time to spend the next month only thinking about next year. But it’s a smart play to take an hour, a half-day, or a full day to look back and look ahead.
- Set expectations with your family and employees. Don’t assume that everyone understands and agrees with your work plans. I’m sure you have great reasons behind your schedule; make sure the people that matter most are on the same page with you.
- Prioritize self-care during the holiday season. There’s a reason bears hibernate in the winter! Use the shorter days and longer nights to prioritize rest and smart decisions about what you eat and drink.
The holidays and the end of a year are unique seasons in the life of a leader. So much of our struggle as leaders stems from our failure to set an intention for our work, our family and our health.
