    Tip : EMOTIONS

    How is your colleague at work feeling? Sad, stressed or frustrated, or happy, light and motivated? In the next 3 days, choose 1 meeting daily where you sense and feel into what emotional state your colleague is in when you start a meeting. Immediately write down the words, and when the meeting is over, share with your colleague what you wrote down, and if this is matching the emotional state of your colleague at that moment. This is one of the best ways to improve your skills in sensing/ feeling into other peoples emotions.

    Tip : VULNERABILITY

    In the coming week, share one personal flaw or secret with a colleague you trust and a close friend. This will show that you are not perfect thus allow them to also open up, and share some of their flaws. The secret of sharing is “the more you share, the more other people also share – and you will get to know each other on a deeper level”.

    Tip : VULNERABILITY

    If you’re open to criticism, you’re able to receive negative feedback about yourself and your work without reacting overly emotionally. Challenge yourself by asking 2 colleagues and 2 friends to give you feedback on how you can further improve the relationship with them. Ask them to be honest and to identify at least one area where you can further strengthen the relationship. Notice when you receive the feedback. Are you able to stay open, or do you immediately get triggered and want to shut down?

    Tip : MEDITATION

    During the next 3 days, write down whenever you have a hard time controlling your negative self-talk. Do you tell yourself that you are not good enough? Do you punish yourself for not having accomplished enough during your workday? Do you feel bad because you are not spending enough time you’re your loved ones? Try to notice patterns in your negative self-talk, and snap out of it by following those 3 steps.

    1. Find a quiet and comfortable space to sit down.
    2. Take 5 deep breaths – breathe in to the count of 4 and out to the count of 6.
    3. Reflect in your notebook: What value do others see in you? What are things people have said to you that meant something? And, what do you honour about someone you love and admire?

    Tip : MINDSET

    For the coming week, book 3 x 10 minutes meetings with 3 different colleagues at work and ask each one of them to give you honest feedback on how they perceive you when you are collaborating with them on a specific work project. What are some of your greatest qualities you have shown, and in which areas can you further improve? Listen, be fully present and do not interrupt when you receive the feedback. Appreciate the feedback by saying thanks to your colleagues and for the coming weeks, try to notice if you are getting closer or further away from your 3 colleagues. Often we will create a closer bond to the people we give or receive honest feedback from, which will have a positive effect on how we connect and perform as a team.

    When was the last time you did something for the first time? In your notebook: List the last 3 things you tried for the very first time, and how you felt every time you succeeded. Then, list 5 new things that you want to try. E.g. “I want to be more grateful” – ok spend 10 minutes daily reflecting on that! “I’ve never understood quantum computing” – start to read about it. “I haven’t got to know that new colleague of mine” – go talk to her/him. Notice what it does to your energy and motivation when you allocate time to try new things and learn new skills that you are super excited about.

    Tip : PURPOSE

    Book a 30-minute conversation with a colleague, your best friend and your partner. Share with them what you believe your purpose and greatest gifts are, and how you plan to integrate more of both into your life. Ask them for feedback. Do they agree with you? Do they see that your gift and your purpose is the same – or different from what you see? What do they think it takes to give your gift and live your purpose more fully? What actions can you consider to be more clear about your purpose in life? Write down the 3 most important pieces of feedback that you get, and start to allocate 1 hour every week to integrate more of your purpose into your life.
