Let’s talk about 3 daily reflection questions for sustained (and repeatable) success!

Welcome to the podcast everyone, I’m your host, Justin Hiebert and I’m excited to have you along for episode 17! Our mission at #NextSteps Coaching is to help leaders resist and overcome burnout so they can leave a legacy of influence and impact on the world.

In this episode, we talk about the three daily reflection questions you need to ask yourself.

3 Daily Reflection Questions

Throughout coaching, we build in intentional times for reflection, growth, and refocusing. Where we put our attention sets our intention. If we want to have success in all areas, we need to get the details right. Success does not come from big breakthroughs but from implementing small, sustainable, and repeatable habits done consistently. Today, I want to talk about the three daily reflection questions you need to be asking yourself. Podcast cover art for podcast episode 17.

1.) What did I learn today? I also talk about the importance of The Medici Effect

2.) What am I grateful for? Expressing gratitude has been proven to have long-term physiological benefits.

3.) Where did I fail? When you fail, you create opportunities for improvement and growth.

In This Episode

In this episode, we talk about the three daily reflection questions for sustained and repeatable success. We will examine how (and why) these steps work, and the importance of integrating them into your daily habits.

In this episode of the Mission-Critical Leadership podcast, Justin talks about his one big requirement from prospective clients to determine the quality of their fit with his coaching system. It starts by answering the question, “What’s at stake?”

The Crucial Question: What’s at Stake?

Sometimes we learn through success. More often, however, we learn through failure. Early in my coaching career, I had my “anti-client.” He was someone that was such a bad fit for me, we were both miserable. In today’s episode, we talk about what I learned from him, and how that shaped my future practice.

Now, with this information and insight, I ask all prospective clients one major question.

This question tells me why the work we will do matters and helps me gauge their commitment to coaching. More than that, it gives them clarity and focus as we start our journey.

It is also something you can use in your daily life to grow your own discipline.

Join me in episode 13 and we examine the crucial answer to the question, “What’s at stake?”

In This Episode

In this episode, we talk about:

  • The growth of coaches to meet specific needs
  • Just because you can coach someone, doesn’t mean you should.
  • What my worst client (ever) taught me about my own coaching philosophy.
  • Get yourself unstuck by asking, “What’s at stake?”
  • Why your mindset matters more than just about anything else.

In this episode, I share a story of our time in Denver and the ugly cry I did in front of new friends. It was an eye-opening experience for me on processing complicated emotions and why emotional intelligence is so critical for strong, healthy, capable leaders.

In This Episode

Also in this episode, we talk about:

  1. Why ignoring your emotions doesn’t make them go away.
  2. How to name your emotions.
  3. There is no such thing as a negative emotion. Do this instead.

Welcome to the Mission-Critical Leadership Podcast! In this episode, we talk about three c’s to sustained success. We also talk about how you can implement these strategies into every area of life so you can be, do, and have it all!

Episode 8

This is episode eight of the mission-critical leadership podcast and we talk about the three c’s to sustained success.

I firmly believe that it isn’t just enough to win in one area of life, I want to win in every area of life. I want a life of excellence, and I work to provide that to my clients. In order to do that, I need to make sure that I’m working on getting the right things done.

To help, I practice three c’s to sustained success. Podcast Cover art for episode 8

First, I seek clarity. Clarity provides action. When I have clarity, I know how to create a plan to help me achieve my goals. Clarity is inspiring.

Second, I become committed. Once I know my destination clearly, I become committed to achieving it. I can’t just do the work when I feel like it, I have to do it every day. Commitment holds me accountable.

Third, I practice consistency. So what if I’m clear and committed if I don’t consistently put in the work? I’ll only reach half of what I set out to do. High performers know that isn’t good enough. Instead, they consistently put in the work and focus on the results, no matter the circumstances.

In This Episode

In this episode, we talk about:

  • These three c’s to sustained success
  • How to implement them in all areas of life
  • Common pitfalls and hurdles you will face
  • Handling the emotional joy of Monday (and the pain of Friday)
  • And much more!

Welcome to the Mission-Critical Leadership Podcast! In this episode, we’re talking about three leadership lessons from the Civil War you need to learn on your journey as a mission-critical leader.

We’re all on a journey. We all face hardships. We all have shortcomings and difficulties. That’s a given. What’s not a given, is our response. We can choose to rise to those moments, see an opportunity instead of an obstacle, and choose to rise above.

OR

We can shrink back, live in fear, and play small.

The American Civil War gave us insights into both. While there are thousands of lessons we could cover, today, we’re going to cover three.

Three Leadership Lessons from the Civil War

1.) The Rosecrans Principle – or why you need to take action and not just plan.

2.) Learn Self-Master – or why people loved Lincoln (and they’ll love you too).

3.) Learn to apologize – or why humility is your greatest leadership asset.

As a history fan, and a mild Civil War historian, I can’t wait to share this episode with you.

Let’s dive into three leadership lessons from the Civil War!
