Top Reads Of The Week: Finish Strong, Start Stronger
Wow! What a turbulent year it has been!
2020 really feels like sitting in an airplane going through choppy skies, with all of us strapped in our seats waiting for the seatbelt lights to turn off and the captain to announce that the worst is over and we’ll be reaching our destination soon. But this isn’t the case for many of us.
In reality, we are indeed the pilots of our own flights, and we are shortly landing on the runway with a new horizon awaiting. A vision of 2021. With the struggles and challenges that made us stronger as professionals as well as together as an organization, this is not the time to slow down. Instead, with the momentum of us performing at our peak, let us dive straight into the new year steadfast, with clarity and zealousness.
Here I have three articles I would love to share with everyone on how we can end this year strong and enter the next even stronger.
Even though the business world has not reached its point of stability, with parts of the globe going through different phases of recovery, the most important factor one should keep in mind is to have a clear direction. Look at 2021 as a clean canvas, ready to be painted with ideas and improvements for your organization, and implement them slowly but steadily.
Reskilling is just as important as it has always been, but now, the time is ripe for harvest. With the many changes that need to be implemented to sustain a well-oiled cog-work mechanism of a productive workplace, one must adapt fast to the current dynamic workforce.
Some are already back working in the office with the implementation of new guidelines and regulations. But for the masses, returning to the workplace might be a huge culture shock with all the changes and whatnot. Have a read on this article to avoid confusion and blunders for those returning in 2021.
Lest we forget, as leaders, it is our responsibility to lead the charge in tackling the problems and challenges we face daily. This week, I have a short video to share with everyone. A reminder that being transparent and communicating with our teams is far more vital than to hide in the shadows of our leadership, pretending everything will be all right once the situation settles down. Do give the video a watch. I’m sure it’ll benefit you as it did for me.
With that said, I would like to wish everyone a well-deserved year-end rest and to starting the new year strong. Take care!
