Summer holidays are a time when the pace of life slows enough for us take stock, reflect on the future and maybe catch-up with some reading.
As you sit on a plane, a beach or in an armchair this summer, you might like to ponder one or two of the following:
– What have I achieved this year that was worth all the effort?
– Whose life has improved as a result of my contribution?
– What is the most valuable lesson I’ve learnt this year?
– Is the future more certain now than it was a year ago?
These periods of reflection can be motivating and inspiring, particularly as we recognise the ‘unique contribution’ we each make. It’s equally important for teams to take time to reflect on past successes and future challenges for the same reasons. So have a great summer, take time to think and set a date to do the same with your team.
