As we approach Thanksgiving in a very challenging year, my hope is that you will find a few things for which to be grateful. Personally, I am thankful for each of you (clients, friends, business connections). Each of you has had some impact on me and helped shape me into the person I am today. Thank you.
If you are working in the capacity of supervising others, please remember that you are helping to shape them. You need to continue to help them grow. One of the best ways to do this is through delegation. They will learn new tasks, gain more confidence and become a greater asset to your organization. I hope you all enjoy this month’s article on the topic.
As always, if I can be of any assistance please reach out.
Stay safe, stay healthy, be grateful!

One of the most difficult transitions for leaders to make is the shift from doing to leading. As a new manager you can get away with holding on to work.
