Whether you believe Santa still shimmies down your chimney with presents or you’ve figured out your parents really stomped on the roof and told you it was reindeer, there’s still that little kid in many of us that wishes we could send a letter to Santa and have him deliver. What if you could send Santa a list of all the things leaders want and he’d just drop it off at your door. Ha! I’d even be willing to pay the shipping charges and bake special reindeer treats for these! What would be on YOUR Leadership List to Santa? Would you add anything to the items listed here?
Angelic employees who did all that we ask
Vendors who always go above and beyond
Paperwork that magically gets done
Reports that seem to write themselves
Performance problems that disappear with ease
Difficult people who do the same
Skilled people to promote from within
An office that is well organized and always neat
Mandatory blackberry breaks in which we CAN’T send or receive emails
Days off when we need them
Positive people to keep us focused
A life that is as fulfilling, or even more so, than our work
Come to think of it… when I look over this list, I can safely say that Santa has been very good to me and to us. This year has been filled with many joys and jump starts to growth and we are truly grateful for each contribution from team members, coaches, clients, and vendors.
May Santa bring you all that is on your list this holiday season and may you enjoy the discovery of how much you’ve already received and enjoy!
