Do you really know where you’re leading your business?


Yes, you—please take stock of what you accomplished in 2013. Did you reach all of your goals? Did you expand your business? Whatever you accomplished, I applaud YOU!

Now, let’s talk about your plans for the New Year: where are you leading your business? Are you on the road to greener pastures? Quick reminder: one of the main jobs of leaders in any organization is to find specific futures for the organizations under their care. So, the next question is: how do you go about doing that?

My 2¢: In life and in business, the road to greener pastures starts with articulating a powerful, long-term focus. I’m sure you’ve heard this phrase before, but have you ever paused to ask yourself: in practice, what does a powerful, long-term focus look like? Here’s my take on it: a powerful, long-term focus = an empowering story well told.

p.s. There are certain moments when our habits become flexible. First days of the new year are one of them. :)
