Resolutions

Angela Robertson wrote about resolutions of an open leader at opensource.com. Angela’s list include

  1. Share objectives and key results I’ve identified for my team. Report on progress monthly.
  2. Write quarterly reflections and quarterly goals. Transparently share when I’ve made mistakes and what I’ve learned from the missteps.
  3. Plan work in two-week sprints.
  4. Write proposals down so I can share them transparently for feedback.
  5. Travel to Israel to meet team members who work in the country.

  7. Co-lead a leadership development program.
  8. Delegate transparently.

  12. Support my partner’s career.
  13. Work with my youngest son on a coding project.
  14. Become a better team member for my peers while also building and developing my team.
  15. Take a meaningful vacation. No checking of email.
