2018 Leadership Close Out
We are all feeling it. The end of the year feels like a rush to the finish line overstuffed with things we should do and places we should be.
If you would like to end 2018 well, I have three tips for you.
1. Take a good look at you ‘to do’ list and be realistic. What are the key things you need to get done before the Christmas break? Then go to your calendar and book in time to complete them and if you need to make sure you are not interrupted go to a café or work from home. Make sure you also take this opportunity to delegate the tasks that you don’t need to be doing yourself.
2. Plan your break and time fully away from work. Let people know that you won’t be checking your emails, plan a digital detox and make sure you give yourself a REAL break from being ‘always on’. Its important to give yourself permission to be away and set a good example for others. If your work requires someone to be on call – share the load.
3. Review your year and think about 2019. Planning for next year should start now and will mean you go back to work in the new year with a plan, so you can be more strategic and less reactive. Consider your support system and the people you surround yourself with. Who do you need in your system who will make sure you are working to your full potential and not compromising your well being? If you need one – get a coach.
If you or your team could use some support next year to achieve more, contact me for coaching, professional development and employee engagement services.
Until then, have a great holiday season.
