Learfield IMG College President & CEO Greg Brown has encouraged employees to choose their own One Word as a way to stay focused on something they personally want to improve upon in 2020. In 2018, Greg’s word was “Gratitude”; in 2019 it was “Listen”. This year, Greg’s One Word is “Authentic” — to be more intentional about relationships, and also to be more authentic.
The inspiration for this comes from noted author/speaker Jon Gordon. He states that in order for employees to grow as individuals, or for a company to grow, we should determine a place in our life that needs work. Jon recommends focusing on One Word for the year rather than making resolutions.
As an approach for personal change and growth, employees are encouraged to share their word by sending it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
