Start preparing for the new business year in the fall, when a sense of anticipation is high. Begin by documenting the good news: expectations that were exceeded, personal victories, outstanding individuals you’ve met or worked with. Next, establish objectives for the upcoming year: new opportunities, changes within your organization, and priorities for the first six months. Ask your staff to establish their objectives, and then meet to insure that everyone starts the year “on the same page.” Focus on maintaining rhythm as the year ends – start the New Year at full speed.
