The fundamental techniques that drive your success never change. Think about how many free throws Michael Jordan must have practiced, or how many jabs Mike Tyson threw. Top athletes like them never stop practicing their basic building blocks even after rising to the top of the professional ranks. So why do people believe leaders at different levels need to focus and develop different core skills?
As we move into spring, now is a great time to do a little career “spring cleaning!” Take stock of the skills you have developed over the last year and identify those that you want to grow further in the year ahead, while re-shifting your focus from those that you do not want to grow.
