As Q1 ends and Spring arrives, it is time to inject energy into your own leadership improvement program. Remember those earnest January commitments? Time to measure your progress and reset your improvement plan to move forward with renewed commitment. We have some ideas for getting that done.
Your achievements are the sum of your habits. What you get done each day is built on the habitual way you approach your job and work relationships. So, holding onto bad habits, largely out of comfort, impedes your own career progress! How to swap those out for great habits? Read on.
December is a great time to try out new, more engaging leadership habits. People are more relaxed around the office, and open to deeper personal engagement outreach. Get started now on good habits you can use to raise productivity in 2018. We offer three areas on which to focus.

As the year ends, you must assess your progress in improving leadership habits. How much progress have you made in replacing bad habits with good? Everyone makes some progress, and everyone backslides. How well you dig into causes and motivations (diagnosis!) could make the difference in continued progress. Click through for more!
