Turnover, Unicorns & Other Leadership Myths
November At C-Level
Less than 45 days left in 2015.
Tick-tock, tick-tock...
Time to ask yourself some questions:

1. Did I/we meet our goals for 2015? Why or why not?
2. Have we prioritized goals and direction for 2016?
3. Are we (globally, all leaders) prepared for the challenges of 2016?
4. Do we have operational/functional plans to support our corporate strategy going forward?

Answer these truthfully, and you'll bring some clarity to reasons for 2015 results, and a preview of 2016 challenges and efforts.
