If your life was a book, what word would you use as the title for this year’s chapter? Respect? Laughter? Explore? Freedom? Perseverance? Put another way, what word – if you focused on it all year – would help you live your vision?
Are you letting something core slide because you are focused on something new?
Can you imagine a new approach that enables you to address your core responsibilities while taking on the challenge?
Who on your team has really grown by working with you? Have you told them what a kick you get out of their success?
What is the culture in your office around taking breaks?
What can you do to lead your team to improve their overall performance by taking breaks?
Can your current work and lifestyle habits sustain you over the long haul?
What message are you sending to your team with your habits?
Someone around you is waiting for you to ask them a direct question, can you ask that question today?
What one behaviour or attitude could you change to help yourself be a better leader? Can you change it?
What emotion did you feel when you walked into the office today? Not sure? Ask your colleagues. They probably picked up on it immediately.
Share these questions with your team as you review and debrief together, and ask them of yourself too:
What’s one thing you could do outside of work that would really make you come alive? When are you planning to do it?
Who or what is getting your best energy right now? Where do you need to invest more energy to improve your life?
What is your biggest strength? How can you use it today to better help yourself and those around you?
