Day 4 in my 12 days of Christmas mini blog series
4. Fresh Focus
Time off often gives people time for reflection and can prompt them to start thinking about other options, career moves or even career changes.
Share your plans for the coming year with your team so they involved, and ask for their input so you give them confidence in the part they have to play, and so you avoid any feelings of insecurity.
Schedule 1:1 reviews as early as possible to discuss individual contributions and where they fit in with your plans for the year ahead.
Encourage everyone in your team to have their own goals too. Even if these don’t include working for you long term, discuss how you can help them achieve their goals together.
