This week I would like to share a set of questions that may open a new avenue of thinking about your day and how asking yourself certain questions may improve your outlook at home or work. This exercise is part of a questioning model I use to help my clients get the best out of their teams, but it works at home too.
So with this in mind, my quote for this week is as follows
Part of being successful is about asking questions and listening to the answer - Anne Burell
Let me ask you a question, thinking back to last week, what kind of impact did you have on the people around you? As a leader, teacher, parent, or employee, what did you do that positively impacted someone's day?
When you have had a little think, then ask yourself, What impact did I have on myself, what did I learn about myself last week?
Would it be fair to say that even though you may have had a productive week, it wasn't filled with thoughts of the impact you had on yourself or others? Even though some of you manage employees, teach students, look after your children, and interact with people every single day. That then begs the question, well how come it wasn't?
How different do you think your day would be if you thought about the impact you have on those around you? How much more would you learn about yourself and those you work with?
How much more do you think you may achieve if you reviewed your day as you traveled home?
This week I would like to give you the opportunity to consider the impact you have on yourselves or others, I think you will be surprised at the results and what you might learn.
My EDGE Coaching tip of the week. "Review your performance"
Here are the questions to ask yourself at the end of each day
If you can positively react to the answers, you will find you create awareness and responsibility, Inspire creativity and resourcefulness and increase possibilities in yourself and others.
