This time of year is naturally one of reflection.
I can’t help but think of how this has been yet another turbulent leadership ride for a lot of people and organizations, dealing with the turmoil of the COVID pandemic and all that it brings.
It is important for leaders to be mindful of their responsibilities to those they lead and to themselves. And first among those responsibilities is self-care – to be an effective leader, you must have the energy and vision to engage those who depend on you.
If you’re exhausted, distracted or preoccupied, you’re not only doing yourself a disservice but others around you as well – your colleagues, your family and friends.
