10 New Year's Resolutions for the Servant Leader

As this year winds down, I’m preoccupied with the question of how I can be more effective next year. My historical method, and the process I’ve started for 2014, has been to create a plan – complete with goals, strategies and tactics.

The question I’ve been asked to answer is this: What advice do you have for me as a younger leader?

And, because I’m always thinking about leadership, my mind began to put the two concepts together.
