August – Its a great month if you live in the Northern Hemisphere – but we dont..
In the south its a month that falls between the cracks – people get sick, the weather is unpredictable, sales slow down, people slow down as they wait in anticipation of the beginning of the southern summer – 1 September.
Dont let this month slip by. Now is the time to re-focus. Get out those target figures you set at the beginning of the year and re-appraise them. Remind your team of the dreams and visions that you had when the year started. Re-energize and re-focus.
Remember that your team takes its cues from you. If you dont make August important it will not be important to them and it can easy slide by without anybody noticing.
