Once the holidays were over, I was able to spend some time reflecting on my challenges and successes in 2015 and on what I would like to accomplish in 2016… I hope you were able to do the same!
I’ve set some aggressive goals for myself and for my business, and this year to make it all more achievable, I’ve added smaller sub-goals, deadlines and measurable targets. I look forward to reporting back to you on my progress at some stage in 2016.
In this post, I have rounded up some of my most popular posts published on LinkedIn in 2015, just in case you missed them. LinkedIn statistics were the basis for my choices, although I did sneak in one of my favourite posts as well.
This is along the lines of the chapters of my book, Communicate Your Way To Global Business Success: 101 Communication Techniques and Strategies to Impact, Influence and Inspire. (If you’d like to see a sample of what’s inside the book, click the title link.)
Here’s the list (and don’t forget to follow me on LinkedIn to get every new article there!)
