This question may echo of a time when our parents used to ask us where we were heading as we dashed out the door to see our friends. Today we may benefit from asking ourselves the same question in order to become more aware of where we are in our life and what direction we would like our life to take. Setting clear goals, combined with our innate, endless potential and a willingness to learn and grow are our golden tickets for the journey towards creating the life we want, on both a personal and professional level.
Having worked with many leaders and management groups over the years, I have seen a need and a desire for a stronger personal leadership, for time management tools that really work and for finding a healthy balance in a world that spins faster every day. In The New Leadership I have found a concept I feel really works to help my clients reach their goals, create long-term positive results, release more time for what they really want to do and feel happy and healthy in the process.
So, where are you going?
