EP 31: Your PPE for a Better 2021

In this important Omnibus episode, the first of 2021, I share a simple but profound and effective way to prepare yourself for a better 2021 – in spite of the Chaos. 

The Leader's PPE stands for:

P – Perspective (Scripting the right Story)

P – Priorities (Choosing the right Action)

E – Equilibrium (Maintaining Resilience)

The method is both holistic and human, and can be applied by both leaders and non-leaders.

So feel free to share with anyone struggling to get started in the Chaos of 2021.
