The WORST thing for us, as leaders, is when the way we think limits our achievement. Self talk gets in the way…of everything. Productivity, growth and overall effectiveness decrease. Rejuvenation in this discussion is not self-care. Rejuvenation is the ability to look at the past, choose what’s useful and what lessons can be leverages and charge forward. Find out how connected the way we think and the way we use past experience can be holding us back.
