Fluffy though it may sound, it's worth taking time out to think about what kind of leader you are - or would like to be.

Don't try to be something you're not. The days of wanting to be the next Jack Welch or Richard Branson are well and truly over - leaders who are true to themselves are respected by their team and find their job much easier. Remember that fakes are always found out. So spend time reflecting on your successes, but also on your failures. Work out what your personal principles and values are, and how they might be used to best effect in your business. It's important to be yourself.
