As we come to the end of the year and see the light at the end of the tunnel, there is no better time than NOW to breathe in and take stock of what you and your team(s) have accomplished in 2017.
Who needs some extra acknowledgement?
- Make a list and check it twice! Make sure your family is on that list as they put up with your crazy self all year!
How can you show gratitude for the progress made?
- A simple note goes a long way
- How about recognizing individuals at your next stand-up meeting?
- If you are in the creative lane, maybe you could write a fun poem that calls out individual contributions!
I know the endless moving and shaking can leave little time for applauding the progress and appreciating all the many lives we have touched. As leaders, each of us needs to take stock. Leadership is everyone’s job so to those who report to someone, be sure that you take a moment to share your gratitude for their coaching, leadership, and support. Find what’s right and build on it. We all need to feel appreciation and what we give, we receive!
Personally, as I say goodbye to 2017 and welcome 2018, I thank you for being in the Aspire Community. It is our honor and privilege to hang with you—each week—and through the work we have done together over the years.
As anyone on the Aspire team will attest…I/we are fanatical about one thing: our Aspire community. And you are at the HEART of that community. We are blessed to again retain 96% of our clients this year—a retention rate we have maintained year-over-year now for 23 years. We work hard to make sure we have your back, delivering the work and inspiration you expect and need to lead and own your niche.
From all of us Aspirates, we wish you an extraordinary holiday season. Thank you for letting us be a part of your world. See you next year!
With deep gratitude,
Renie, JC, Barbara, Jeffri-Lynn, Kendall, Liz, Kim, Misha and all of the Aspire team members around the globe
