What's your strategy for 2017?

Enjoy the opportunities that 2017 brings!

It is not the strongest species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the most responsive to change.
— Charles Darwin

We ended 2016 with a real wake-up call for everybody in a leadership, executive or management role - the status quo of business was disrupted.

Over the Christmas holidays I had the pleasure of spending time lying on the beach in Byron Bay and then going to a permaculture farm in the Byron hinterland.

Over the holiday break I would take a book down to the beach to read, which inevitably attracted conversation from other beach goers, firstly on me being the only person reading a book with everybody else on some device.

The book was one on leadership and self-motivation by Mark Oliver, The Seven Motivations of Life - taking your leadership to a higher level. I liked it because it challenged some of my concepts around leadership and self-motivation and that is always a sign of a good book. I was also intrigued by the fact that this book could be easily used with an executive team who wanted a framework to apply to their leadership skills, both at a personal and professional level. The book can be purchased and Mark can be contacted at Mark Two Consulting.

So, if you want to pursue the opportunities for 2017 you need to rethink your strategy and how to lead a peak performing team to success.

It was a wonderful way for me to start 2017. There will be more opportunities for you to be successful this year than ever before, the world is changing and changing fast. Have you developed a team that is agile and can solve problems in a different way?

Gary Peacock has developed a great tool to help leaders motivate their teams and develop rapid solutions for problems - both internally and externally focused. 

He is running the workshop this year at the University of Newcastle's Sydney campus.
