Say Leadership Coaching was born in the heat of Hawaii’s summer, and as I worked on a plan for my new business, I literally had a Christmas in July moment.
After far too many years working like a mad woman during the holidays and having to schedule my staff to do the same thing, this was the one non-negotiable decision that would be entered onto my Business Plan: Say Leadership Coaching would be closed over the Christmas holidays, and I would never again schedule anyone to work them. To Ho‘omaha is to rest, to rejuvenate and replenish.
Therefore my Ho‘ohana Community of friends, this year, SLC will be closed starting Monday, December 20, 2004 and will reopen for business with the new year, on Monday, January 3, 2005.
Thanks to the wonder of the internet, Talking Story will continue to be here, hoping to serve you when you feel like checking in. I offer a sampling for you below, of the 24 posts that seemed to be most popular in the past few months. I’ll be back with our Ho‘ohana for January on Monday, January 3rd. Until then, my best wishes to you for a wonderful holiday season: give your Aloha in the gift of yourself to your family and loved ones. You will find that it blesses your Christmas and can last all through the new year.
I did not include the monthly Ho‘ohana in this listing: you can scroll down the left hand column to find them under their own heading below the Category List.
From my family to yours:
Mele Kalikimaka, Merry Christmas
Hauoli Makahiki Hou, and a Happy New Year
Ka la hiki ola, it is the dawning of a new day,
Make it your best one ever.
