In times of stress, people look toward stability. This is the time for leaders to take the stress upon their shoulders and say simply…everything is going to be okay. Whether it’s your employees, your friends, or your family, there has never been a more important time to be the rock.
The best gift of all though has been left off this list and that is the gift of forgiveness. This is the type of gift that’s both a gift to you and to the person you’re giving it. You can forgive contentious bosses and co workers, clients who’ve fired you, vendors who’ve gouged you and most of all, you can forgive yourself if you didn’t exactly achieve everything you set out to or do all that you promised yourself you would in 2012.
