Create three leadership experiments you commit to do for the next 5-8 weeks. Choose one experiment for each category. Focus on one and do it daily to create new habits. If you want to challenge yourself, take on a couple.

These ideas are intentionally ‘big picture’ so you can define one for yourself. Set a goal for each one that says what specifically will you do, when, how, and how often. Post your goals where you can see them weekly.
