Resolutions That Stick

As this year comes to an end, I reflect on the promises and resolutions that I made to myself this past January.  As I make new resolutions and promises for 2017, I do so in good faith to reach those goals.  And I am sure that I won’t be the only one making these resolutions.

Usually, resolutions focus on individual improvements and how to live a better life.  But what resolutions can be made to improve life for ourselves at work and for our employees?  Actually, as we welcome in the New Year, we have the ability to begin new traditions for our workforce.  Therefore, I invite you to begin this year unlike no other in years passed!

Implement new employee engagement initiatives for your workforce and help them take advantage of the initiatives already in place.  Collaborate, engage and recognize your employees each and every day.  Write down your goals and review them each day.  Set milestones to measure your success at work and at home.  Make an individual plan for yourself as well.  Set a goal for your own self-improvement and then hold yourself accountable with measured milestones.

It will be another 365 days before we are given this opportunity again, so let’s not waste it.  Write down, implement and measure your success in 2017.  And feel free to share your resolutions with us in the comment section below.

And thank you for allowing me to share with you my thoughts and experiences over the last 3 months. The gift of your readership has been the best gift of all.

Happy New Year!
