Today I had that aha moment I often have when I reflect on my coaching sessions with senior leaders. A recent coachee told me he heard himself giving advice during a performance review conversation and in that moment thought ‘bloody hell I need to take my own advice here’.

I often ask leaders if you were watching yourself in this situation, what advice would you give yourself. A slightly different take on that is to notice what suggestions you’re giving others, what insights you’re offering and ask yourself ‘would I benefit from doing this’?

Often it’s the very thing we recommend for others that we could benefit from doing ourselves.

For me this week, it’s getting back into a productive rhythm, finding balance in the physical, mental and spiritual aspects of life.

Take a moment to think about what yours might be…
