Birthdays & Milestones

Tomorrow my husband turns 50.
This got me thinking about birthdays & milestones.
What do we celebrate and how do we celebrate the milestones in our lives?
At home? or at work?

As leaders (and he exemplifies this to the T), knowing the milestones that mark the path to success for each person on the team can lead to mini or maxi celebrations that provide encouragement, develop engagement and help facilitate change in habit and growth in culture.

What do you take time to celebrate?
Before you answer that question -  what are the milestones that make a difference to you, your team and your organization - that should be celebrated?
Not only that - who have you told about those milestones and what will the celebration be?

It can be as simple as donut-day for 30 accident-free days to as large as a cruise for hitting the Million Dollar Club - fact is, good leaders know that milestones are important - and sticking to them builds credibility and trust.

2013 is just around the corner. Take some time today to write out 1 milestone for each quarter that will help you highlight your road to a successful year.
