As the saying goes: be the change that you wish to see in the world. Sometimes, that means starting in your own world. This year, Sam Miri challenges fellow leaders to look at areas in their professional lives that could benefit from positive change. Start here:

This doesn’t necessarily mean leaving your current team. It may also benefit you, and the team at large, to take a look at other areas that require leadership within your organization.
- Mentor a newcomer in your industry

- Seek out a career coach

But there is strength in acknowledging the fresh ideas and insight that someone with an outside perspective can offer to you. Even the greatest leaders introduce coaches into their circles, so why shouldn’t you?
