Looking forward to 2020 thanks to you

I'm looking forward to a fabulous 2020 thanks to you.


Each of you did one or more things for me, with grace and kindness, in 2019.

For example,

  • You asked me difficult questions, pushing me to reflect on my work to date and to clearly define what I wanted to do next, always expressing confidence in me,

  • You referred me to your professional colleagues, clearing the way with gracious introductions,

  • You accepted a connection request to a complete stranger and willingly shared advice, ideas, and further connections,

  • You greeted me at a networking event, listened patiently, and then shared a more concise way for me to say what you heard me saying,

  • You helped me see how and where I can transfer my current traits and skills,

  • You pointed out gaps and how to fill them to be a more valuable consultant or team member,

  • You gave me feedback on strategy and business development for my consulting work, and/or

  • You put me to work on a variety of interesting projects.

So, thank you.


I look forward to spending this year helping organizations make a bigger difference by developing their people.
