"The beginning is the most important part of the work" - Plato
January is always viewed as a beginning. For some, it is the beginning of the last quarter of the fiscal year and the time to push so targets are met and exceeded. For others, it is the beginning of a new year with new challenges and new opportunities. In both cases, it is a time when leaders need to show or remind their team of the vision. Everyone should have clarity on what the big picture looks like so that they are all singing from the same songbook, on the same page, and in harmony.
Have you shared the big picture with your team? Are they motivated by the vision? Does each person understand his/her role in making the vision a reality?
