It’s great to have spent time with so many different families over the past 20 years. I get to see what works and what doesn’t. I have the chance to work with so many highly effective leaders.
The most effective, successful leaders are proactive.
These leaders are thinking two steps ahead of their family and their business.
This month, they are already formulating their goals for next year. To be one step ahead of the competition on day one, they want to have those goals in place BEFORE January 1!
They are setting a few new strategic goals for the business and setting their own personal development goals. An example is being set and they are asking others to do the same.
Proactive leaders know if they want to have a great business and a great family, they need to keep stretching themselves and their team. They are never satisfied with the “status quo!”
So, what about you, your family and business team? Are your goals coming together? Will you and your team be hitting the ground running next year? Are you stretching yourself?
Coaches have coaches!
I was sharing my ideas for the new year with the people who coach me (I have three people coaching me) this week and one of my coaches challenged my idea. As a result, the idea got even better. He stretched me further than I was stretching myself.
Please let me know if I can help in any way. Have fun and play to your potential!
