Leadership and the Holidays
You have worked hard all year, and your team members have leveraged their talents to accomplish goals and objectives. As the leader, take the time this holiday season to value your team, acknowledging the great job they are doing and praising the achievements from the year’s past.
Lead by example and model the right behavior. Get out of your office and walk around to be in conversations with your team. Ask them how they are doing and what you can do to further support their growth and development in the new year. Be humble, respectful and grateful.
Leaders bring out the best in their people and teams, as well as care about their happiness and well-being. They empower their people by establishing accountability in a trusting environment. As you reflect on 2019, remember all the good. And as you look to 2020, find new ways to inspire a positive, collaborative and inclusive team culture.
