Leadership Never Takes a Day Off … Not Even on Thanksgiving Day

The holiday season begins and no matter how excited and positive you are about it, there are always stressors to contend with.

Sleeping arrangements for family coming into town. Menu items to please everyone. Trying to keep the day’s discussion off politics. Trying to make sure that we spend time talking about what we are thankful for instead of being glued to football all day.

As the list goes on, we must keep one thing in mind:

Leadership never takes a day off!

We plan and prepare meals and the days events with plenty of time to spare so we can focus on our guests because…

Leadership never takes a day off!

We are aware of what is happening around us and we make adjustments to what we see to ensure a positive environment because…

Leadership never takes a day off!

We ignore the dig from our in-law about the stuffing being too dry because we know responding in kind serves no purpose other than appeasing your own ego because…

Leadership never takes a day off!

We make time to truly listen to what people are saying instead of just waiting for our turn to talk because…

Leadership never takes a day off!

When we begin to act outside our best selves, we remember how we WANT to behave and act accordingly because…

Leadership never takes a day off!

We give ourselves and others around us grace for any mis-ques because…

Leadership never takes a day off!

Wishing you a happy and healthy Thanksgiving with loved ones.
