If we did the things we are capable of, we would astound ourselves.

Greetings, Inspired Travelers!

Wow! A whole year has gone by and we are entering the holiday season and the end of 2017 whether we are ready or not. That's the way it is with life for leaders! So, let's make the final days of the year a great performance! Let's set the foundation for a strong and successful new year and stronger and more successful teams! Here are some tips to help close out the year on a good note:

Performance is strongest and most successful when people are playing to their strengths. Is every member of your team singing the right part in the right chorus?
Pick your priorities. Progress happens when the chorus is only rehearsing the most important songs… What are your team members focused upon?
Performance improvement happens when we know what's coming next. Are your team members able to turn the page and see the upcoming notes?
Performance is most successful when team members' gifts and talents complement each other. Is everyone performing the right part?
Team members cannot address performance issues when the feedback is received too late. Give compassionately honest feedback in the moment - not at the end of the show.

People-focused performance improvement is what creates a symphony of success. It's not simply about the process - it's about your people. Keep your focus there and you will fly through the end of the year with high notes and excellent reviews!

Happy holidays! Celebrate everything - especially your people!

Have an Inspirational Holiday Season!
