Well, here we are at the end of another year!

An opportunity to reflect on and consider the year that was.

This is a question I've asked many of my clients with varying responses.

How has your year been?

A calendar year is an approximation of the number of days of the earth's orbital period; following the Gregorian calendar, this is 365 days. This is what we follow, and as much as I believe in regular checkpoints to reflect, recharge and reset in life as we near the year's end, it's a good opportunity to reflect and be future-ready to delve into the new year with 20/20 vision!

I've always loved the number twelve since I was a child. I'm not sure why I have always referred to 12 tips and ideas in workshops and in writing, such as in my white paper, The 12 Superpowers.

Reflecting on 2023…

On that note, I've devised 12 prompters to review the year that was. You can do this reflection individually or as a team; a great way to open up dialogue and share and promote human-centred leadership at work.

Take some time to reflect in order to refuel and reset for the new year – ask yourself the 12 questions. Note your responses and review them regularly.

What have been the Gifts you have unwrapped in 2023???

As always, we'd love to hear your thoughts and feedback.

Lead to be limitless…
