Free ebook "The Engaging Leader Questions Library"

A free pdf ebook titled The Engaging Leader Questions Library contains question sets to be used in both 1-on-1 meetings and team meetings. You will find there questions that build the psychological safety of an employee and naturally favor commitment.  

You will learn rephrasing techniques, meeting facilitation, and critical thinking. 

There you will also find two dedicated sections: one dedicated to a team meeting where the overall action plan is evaluated; the second is devoted to the leader's work on himself.

So much is said about leadership today. As well as about "diversity and inclusion". But can someone who is not coping with himself be a good leader for others? Especially in these difficult times when each of us has to face challenges such as pandemics, war, and the ever-increasing pace of life.

Therefore, we especially encourage you to practice the techniques contained in the section on self-development. They are designed in a special way, aimed at obtaining the highest possible comfort and satisfaction in the difficult role of a team leader.

The library was created on the basis of many coaching sessions conducted with managers and middle and senior managers.  It addresses very specific situations and contains practical solutions that also apply to working remotely.

We designed the Pills using famous quotes and thoughts of wise people. Sometimes also using own reflections that appeared during - or after - the coaching session. Pills of Wisdom focus mainly on the area of Life Coaching, that is, broadly understood human development as a person. The Coaching Pills are supposed to broaden awareness, encourage you to stop, and make you think.

5 inspiring verbs that can change your life

And as usual on our website, we have a special bonus at the end of this section. In this way, we want to appreciate your focus, determination, consistency and thank you for investing your time to get to this place. There are no shortcuts in the area of personal development.

 

If you have difficulty inspiring yourself, starting to act, or procrastinating - please pay attention to the verbs that you use most often. What we say shows how we think.

 

We all get stuck at times where things just don't move forward. We have problems with motivation and our goals seem either unattainable or too weak. In short, we don't feel  inspired!

Some self-improvement experts will tell you that you need to be positive in order to improve your life. I would only agree partially, because it is not always that simple. It's hard to set ambitious goals and be inspired to achieve them when you don't have the right mindset.

But if your mind is not ready to embrace more exciting goals, change will be difficult at best.

In fact, if you are not ready for it, it will be difficult to meet even small challenges. If you cannot take on small challenges, it will be impossible to change your life as much as you want.

So to create a sense of inspiration and start making changes, try starting with your first simple activity. If you shake yourself gently while taking action first, you will prepare your mind to create and pursue more exciting goals.

Below you will find 5 inspiring action verbs that you can use and prepare yourself mentally for new challenges. If you use these techniques, you will naturally find yourself on a path to change. Change leads to bigger and better goals. Bigger and better goals lead to bigger challenges ... and so on and so on.

Here are 5 functional verbs to inspire you and take you out of your routine.

 

1. Give - to a charity, someone in need, or just a friend or relative

You don't have to give something expensive or big. It is enough to show gratitude, such as a small gift or a flower. Why is it working? Giving is a very uplifting experience because it frees the mind from thinking that there is not enough of everything in the world. Giving also teaches you that there are many fun things to do. And above all, notice that by giving you start ... to act!

 

2. Learn - a new skill

Learn something completely new. For myself. It is not about new theoretical knowledge, but about a new skill. For example, learn to play guitar or bake a new cake. Learn a new language or play a new game (not a computer!). Why it works? Learning something new develops your nervous system and makes you think in ways you've never thought of before. And besides, it proves to you that ... you can!

 

3. Change - with small steps

Change especially your routine. For example, choose a different route to work tomorrow, change your typical clothing style, or hairstyle the day after tomorrow or change what you usually eat. Why it works? It reminds you of how many other possibilities are within your reach. And perhaps many pleasures that you forgot. Besides, change breeds change. If you want a big change, start with a small change.

 

4. Participate

Participate in the activities of your community, or sports team, or join a club of interest. Not remotely - physically and in person. Why it works? Participation requires social interaction and creativity to stimulate and inspire. Besides, after a two-year pandemic and confinement at home, it is even necessary to maintain or restore basic mental health.

 

5. Create

Create your first, even a tiny, work of art, write a short story, make a bookshelf, a vase for flowers, Why it works? Creation stimulates all those dormant forces that enable change in your life. You don't even suspect how much potential you have. And you can only find out about it when you try.

At the age of 55, I painted the first picture in my life. And I had no idea it would give me SOOOO MUCH joy. From then on, I paint regularly. What's more, I dragged my ... 81-year-old mother into it and my heart rejoices when I see how much joy it gives her.
