Welcome to December 2021.
Where does the time go?
The first 11 months have disappeared, and December will soon follow.
With all that’s going on between now and year end, there’s a chance any personal leadership development opportunity will disappear. Don’t let that happen.
Commit to developing a better understanding of an issue that’s important to you, then do something about it.
You could choose understanding:
- Generation gaps and how to close them.
- Employee engagement and how to capture more of it.
- Effective ways to increase internal communication.
- Policies that may need changing to reflect today’s workplace.
- Your true market share position and how to improve it.
- Succession planning and how to create one that works for you.
- An internal process that needs tightening and how you can make it happen.
- Whatever is imminently important to you and your business.
Commit at least one hour a week for the next four weeks to develop a better understanding on one or more issues such as these. Then figure out the best way to spend that time. Pursue reading, webinars, seminars, podcasts, audio or video programs, online courses—even coaching or mentoring. Anything that works for you.
Then keep your commitment to yourself by remembering this John F. Kennedy quote I’ve shared many times before: Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
Yes, this December, there is still time to learn something new.
