In most of the things we do we are setting some goals. If it’s about sports – the goal is to run half-marathon or to win an Olympic medal. In business – to get a promotion or to seal the deal with a big client. Or in personal life, to get married or to have… Read More Setting Your Leadership Goals
Jokes aside, we all know that while we are closely focused on our work and our career, we spend most of our time in a problem-solving mode and we don’t bother thinking too much about other things.
