My big goals this year are to establish my new brand, Stronger Leader, with a new web site and logo, coaching and training programs and a book. To support these goals, my plan is to write on a topic a month that will also serve as material for the book. I have a half-day Stronger Leader training developed and ready to roll. I could pull together something longer or shorter in a flash. My goal is to send 1-2 emails a month and write 1-2 blog posts a month on each topic.
Feb – Blog post about a retreat I facilitated introducing the Stronger Leader training program.
March – Stronger Leader Launch –Write about the benefits of a strengths-based approach. Write up my top 5 strengths and add to my About page. Make a special offer for strengths assessment and 3-minute discovery session for $97.
April – Emotional Intelligence and leadership – finish blog post, “What my mother taught me about EI””; Authentic leadership? share recording of EI podcast.
May – creativity and leadership – Find Your Outlet – post on creative expression and leadership, finding your outlet. Share painting. Flow workshop??
June – Change management and leadership – build on daughter’s high school graduation. Post on stages of change that can help leaders navigate tricky waters.
July – Conflict resolution and leadership (you know, fireworks). Blog post on effective supervision, positive communication.
August –Coaching and Leadership – back to school. Importance of coaching when you’re in a leadership role. Transition into “back to school” coaching and training package. Maybe group coaching?
September – Training and effective presentation skills and leadership – professional development as a priority. Offer coaching package and some offer around training/retreat facilitation
October – Evaluation and Leadership – how to do effective staff evaluations. What to avoid. Perils.
November – Building your team.
December – Gratitude and planning
Now to get ‘er done!!

I like your basic plan to build around a book. Working on the here and now, but knowing how everything will come together at the finish.

Kudos for going the extra mile and planning out your full year! And blogging a book is a great way to feed two birds with one scone.
Would love to see you incorporate speaking gigs into this mix — especially as I know you do quite a bit of this (and speaking is absolutely part of a content strategy).
