    It's the time of year again when people are reviewing their goals for the year. But it's also important to take this opportunity to look back and reflect on what 2021 brought, so that we can understand what worked and what needs to be changed. In today’s episode Managing Partner and Co-Founder Haleh Fardi discusses the importance of Beginning Again. Recalibrate and rethink, rather than reinvent. Businesses need to have a more thoughtful conversation with their employees about what they want to achieve this year and how they hope it will go. This new mindset will help them avoid making mistakes that could derail their plans for success. Haleh shares valuable insights on how even small changes can have significant impact.
