Beware of January 1st Deadlines!

As an executive coach, I offer these words of caution to my clients:

“Beware of January 1st deadlines and implementations!”

Executives often direct January 1st deadlines and "Go-Live" dates for systems implementations, and by doing so, they have effectively ruined the holidays of many of their teammates.
