I updated my resume today – not because I’m not happy at work (I enjoy my job) – but its a good thing to do from time to time. Staring at my Word document, I felt that it lacked…life… so I redid it in Illustrator. After an hour of playing, the result was one of the same information as in the Word file but with colors, design acumen, and an overall compelling look.
How often do we miss out on being creative in our leadership roles? It could be in hiring, training others, working with customers or teammates, whatever… but how much more effective would our efforts and energy be if we added some color and ingenuinity to our routine?
