Leaders all make mistakes, but hopefully we learn from our mistakes, especially when it comes to our businesses.
What mistakes did you make in 2016? Have you corrected them or is it business as usual? Will we be having this same conversation five years from now?
· Did you let those employees know they were valued?
· Did you take the time to do one-on-ones with your employees so they can have a real performance review?
· Did you give credit where credit was due?
If it can be documented (your word is not enough) that you did all these things, congratulations! If this is not part of your normal practice, why isn’t it? Do you realize the message you are communicating to your staff by not doing these simple things?
2017 could be just another year of many, or you can make the conscious effort to make some positive changes for the betterment of others. The choice is yours.
