“Never look back unless you are planning to go that way.”
—Henry David Thoreau, 19th Century American author, poet, philosopher
At this time of year a fair number of organizations schedule various forms of management meetings to discuss their current status and plan for the future.
They often refer to these group sessions as “retreats,” which I find amusing, since I am sure none of these leaders wish to take their organizations backward.
Recently, some leaders are recognizing the power of the language they use, and are beginning to call these off-site meeting “advances.”
Plan you own “advances” with key individuals in your professional and personal worlds to move toward the future you sincerely desire.
