New Year’s reSOLUTIONS 2014

With great success, we’re back with this series, asking our network to reflect on the past year and their goals for the year ahead.

Whether you wish to believe it or not, 2014 is quickly coming to a close. For many, this year has brought triumph, but for others it is a time to reflect on where new challenges fell short and how to grow in the new year.

This is a time to do such a thing, to dream up a goal based on reflection. We have so much to learn in the way we lead and grow, we often just forget to slow down and take the time to do so.

Last year, we ran a New Year’s reSOLUTIONS series. Not to make a resolution, like most people do, but to look for meaningful goals and solutions based on the reflections of the previous year. Earlier this week, author Christina Scalera (insert link here) informed us about what it takes to make meaningful goals and make them count, giving us the perfect Segway to re-introduce this series to you.

We have already asked our network of executive leaders to share, but we’d love for you to reflect as well. Here are some of the questions we have found to be helpful in doing so:

·   What are some simple steps you can do to improve the area or areas you feel could be positively changed?
·   How well have you balanced different areas of your life (i.e., work, family, friendships, mental health, physical health), and what can you add, remove or adjust to add more balance?
·   What were some goals you set for yourself at the beginning of 2013? What accomplishments or strides have you made?
·  Overall, where do you see yourself this time next year?

Some of the executives sharing will be touching on both personal and professional reSOLUTIONS they have in the next three weeks. Be open to seeing how their reflections can help you as well. We’ll be hearing from executives like Todd Richardson from ExactTarget, Steve Reese from the Phoenix Suns, Shari Conaway from Southwest Airlines, and more. Stay tuned!
