Management success is not random. As we enter a new year, this is a worthwhile reminder.
If you are a manager reading this post, I encourage you to create a plan of how you want to and will be more successful this year. In this ever changing economy, this is an essential career management strategy.
A plan is a target. I heard it once said, "Most people aim at nothing and hit it amazingly well."
