  • What will people say about you when you're gone?
    To lead well, it's worth taking a moment to think about the mark you're leaving on those around you, notes John Baldoni. Try drafting your own eulogy, and reflecting on whether you could be doing more to make a positive difference. "Too often we are overwhelmed by the minutiae of the day, and it is hard to take a step back and gain perspective," Baldoni writes.
