3 Questions, 8 Characteristics, and 4 Signs for the New Year

HBR Blogs: Three Questions Executives Should Ask for the New Year

IHBRLogo love the Harvard Business Review blogs. It’s where all the great research they do gets turned into practical guidance that can make a real difference!

Melissa Raffoni wrote a terrific article, brief-enough-to-be-read-quickly, but meaty enough to be invaluable long term. In a nutshell, she identifies characteristics of successful CEOs as well as signs of under-performers. Here are her 3 questions to ask yourself as CEO as you set your  goals for each New Year:

  1. If there was only one thing I could do to improve my business, what would it be and how would I make it happen?
  2. If there was only one thing I could focus on to improve my personal performance, what would that be and how would I make it happen?
  3. What messages am I not listening to or refusing to confront in my business and personal performance and how am I going to overcome that this year?

Don’t miss this! And have a happy and prosperous New Year.
