2007 has been an amazing year and I'm so thankful for my family and friends new and old. Publishing Ignited has opened so many new relationships and given me the chance to see so many businesses rethinking the world of work. 2008 will no doubt bring further evidence of managers reinventing business and creating the type of work places we all know are possible. The days of command and control, top-down, leadership are truly numbered and it seems the companies that are having the greatest success are those with Managers that are truly Ignited.
With this time of year comes planning and reflection. What do we aspire to do and who do we aspire to be in 2008? As you plan your own year I encourage you to work on your Manager's Universe. Think about those relationships that'll not only ensure your success in the year ahead but also challenge you to think in new ways.
I've had some fun recently being involved in a new show on BNET called Dog and Pony. Dog and Pony is where business thinkers come and do their Dog and Pony. Watching Dog and Pony may give you some thoughts on your own Dog and Pony for 2008.
There are many really terrific interviews worth watching.
I had the chance to appear as a guest and later I was asked to host a few. Hosting is such a pleasure...amazing people, great conversations. You'll see that I even get to ask the personal questions.
