This past week has brought many loose ideas, people and ways together through my on-going close-out-the-year conversations. The one issue that keeps rising to the surface in almost all of those discussions is personal leadership.
My prediction for 2006 is simple:
People will spend more time packaging their talents, skills and connections in new ways to make themselves more relevant for communities and organizations much more aligned with what they believe in and what they want to achieve that delivers human, social, creative and financial value.
That means that the role of coaches and guides will become more important than ever before if organizations are going to get the right talent in the right roles.
I wish you a year filled with joy, adventure and wonder for 2006.
