Happy New Year! 🥂
Are you ready for 2023? I think most of us feel like it’s going to be a special year. Whether its the pending recession gloom or the ongoing war in Ukraine, or our ever shifting understanding of how we work (remote, office, hybrid? 5-day or 4-day week?) it’s definitely going to be a challenging year, but as someone who started my professional journey in 2007 I also know that a year like that offers opportunities for all of us. It will push us to learn and grow faster than 2022 and 2021 did, it will give us opportunities to jump on and challenging decisions to make.
To help you start 2023 on a strong note, I went through all Weekly Briefings of 2022 and pulled out the Top 12 resources for you, based on what you read the most:
