Wishing you a very merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Can you believe it’s that time of year again?! IDG talks leadership in 2018.
You may have noticed over the last few weeks that we have been sharing some inspirational leadership quotes on twitter as a countdown to the holidays. And although we have really enjoyed sharing these with you in the run up to Christmas, there’s an important reason behind it.
Because as we gear up for another year full of opportunities and challenges, we cannot underestimate the importance of effective leadership and the role it has to play in inspiring our people and ultimately performance.
Leaders and managers play a crucial part in your organisation by definition – they're the ones that lead your business forward and manage the people that will help you to achieve your business ambitions.
They're pivotal in creating a positive and effective workplace culture as they are tasked with supporting your wider team to achieve their goals. You need to bring out the very best in them, to bring out the best in your people.
Unfortunately, we cannot get away from productivity in the UK being an issue and as we move into new ways of working and trading over the coming years, we need to up our game in areas such as skills and employee engagement in order to thrive and compete.
There is so much potential there and some fantastic work that organisations up and down the country are already exploring and progressing to do just that.
At IDG, we’re passionate about helping employers of all shapes and sizes to embrace good leadership – helping you to explore new approaches as well as revisit current practices to make sure you are building a happier, healthier and more sustainable organisation.
2018 will see us continuing our vision and you can look out for new events, services and opportunities as the year begins!
In the meantime, why not check out our advent calendar of leadership quotes as inspiration for the end of 2017 – and the beginning of a happy and prosperous 2018.
From all the team at IDG, we wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year!
