What would you like to improve in your work or life?  Maybe you want to improve at a particular technical skill.  Or maybe you want to get better at a people skill like being more assertive, a stronger leader, a better sales person – or anything else.  Hopefully you have a plan of action for tackling it.  But allow me to tell you something essential for helping yourself to change.
