Let's make 2016 a year to remember! 

Let's make 2016 --- "SWEET '16 "  a memorable chapter in our journey.

Here are SIXTEEN "One -Step-Outside-Your-Comfort Zone"(for many) strategies,  guaranteed to re-ignite your Leadership:

1. Once a day;  reward what you want repeated by telling a person more than just "hey, good job"...explain what you observed them doing and why it is important.

2. Have lunch with one of your competitors.

3. Write a poem and share it with a loved one.

4. Take yoga and meditation classes.

5. Run a Marathon, or 1/2 Marathon, or a 10K...or walk it.

6. Jump out of an airplane...with a parachute.

7. Volunteer/ donate to help a cause that your best friend believes in.

8. Ask your employees or business partners how you can be a better leader.

9. Reach out to an old friend that you have not spoken to for years.
