Many of us are busy preparing for Christmas. In this preparation, we are mind-filled of the details of the holiday season. In our preparation, we decorate the tree, rooms in our home and the outside of our house and yard. We prepare our Christmas card list and our gift list. We spend time planning our holiday meals, taking into consideration the likes and dislikes of our guests. The shopping list is completed and our strategic plans for grocery and gift shopping are formulated. We spend considerable time preparing our home for guests, relatives, and friends, leaving no detail unturned. The candles and soaps are strategically placed. Music and fragrances decided upon and implemented give joy to both our guests and us. We watch with baited breath as our loved ones open their gifts, aware of their every move.

Our holiday preparations involved strategic thoughts, plans, revision of plans, action lists, action, and evaluation. Can you imagine how our leadership development and skills may be improved if we took a similar strategic approach to preparing ourselves as better leaders?
Dr. Dorothy Bonvillain and I are offering a 4-week mastermind teleclass in January on John C. Maxwell’s 15 Invaluable Laws of Growth. Please email me for details at I sure hope you will join us in preparing for the next level of your leadership!

In love and preparation,
