A Question of 2019

· Leadership,Coaching,Questions
You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results.”
James Clear

Are you reflecting on your career at the end of the 2018? What have you promised yourself for 2019? Is it more of the same? If you want to find a new perspective but are stumped for where to look, what will you do? A feeling of stuckness over the year end break often leads people to seek me out to help them regain direction and momentum.

As a Coach I am often supporting clients in their professional development and career progress. Questions are my stock in trade. What question helped you most in 2018? If you can't answer that then maybe you need to seek out more challenging questions. In a world where we become the five people we spend most time with very quickly, we are challenged, perplexed or provoked much less than we need.


Rather than ask what is your trajectory, what are your priorities or what is your purpose, I'd alter the wording a little to seek an intentional, conscious, committed answer:


What trajectory have you set for 2019?

What priorities have you determined for 2019?

What purpose have you embraced to fuel you through 2019?


Here are my most popular leadership coaching Twitter questions of each month in 2018.
