Download episode 106

Happy New Year!

I love new things! I love the start of a new project. Working with a new team or new client. Trying out a new tool or a new gadget.

I love new.... It's a chance to start over, to learn from the past and apply it to the future.

As we fire up another year, it's a great time to look for a fresh start. To consider what we'll do differently. And my advice for you this year? Well, you'll have to listen to the episode to get the answer!

Our New Year's Guest: Tom Rath

You've likely heard of Tom and his books. He's a senior scientist and advisor to Gallup, where he led their research and consulting on employee engagement, strengths, and well being. If you read How Full Is Your Bucket?, Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements, StrengthsFinder 2.0 or took the StrengthFinders assessment, you're among the millions of people who have been impacted by his work.

Tom's most recent book is Eat Move Sleep: How Small Choices Lead to Big Changes. As we head into a new year, your ability to lead and deliver starts with you! How can you sustain the energy needed for all the stress and demands you'll face this year? How can you not only survive the year but set yourself up for perhaps even decades of better health?

How about this? What if we forgot about coming up with big, hairy, audacious New Year's resolutions this year? What if your New Year's resolutions were actually attainable this time around--you know, still relevant two months from now.... Or two days from now!

What if we did that by identifying small changes to make? Small changes about how you Eat. Move. And Sleep.

In this episode, Tom Rath will tell you how to do that.
