Start Planning for 2016
While the New Year doesn't officially start until January, for many Fall feels like a time of new beginnings. What are you doing this quarter to prepare for 2016?
While you're busy planning for next year, don't forget to set some time aside to focus on your own personal development. What are the gaps you need to fill in to reach your goals and perform at your best? Does the image you project to the world match your intentions and career goals?
A good place to start is a Communications Review. We will assess your strengths and needs and give you an Action Plan for strengthening your communication at work.
If you are a leader, we encourage you to complete a 360 assessment every other year. Focusing on 9 leadership competencies, our 360 will help evaluate your strengths, target areas for growth and share perceptions of direct reports, senior management or boards, peers and colleagues.
Also, if you are a global manager and fluency in English is on your list, you may want to consider one of our new Executive Bootcamps. This new program is designed to help busy executives improve their communication skills through an immersive program, tailored to your needs and skill level.
Lastly, no matter what language you speak, how you present is crucial to your success as a leader. Read this month's blog post for quick tips on opening and closing meetings.
