Listening Tip #2 : Ask questions. Powerful questions. • Powerful questions stop you in your tracks. They make you pause and reflect. And they send you not toward a specific destination but in a direction, a direction full of possibilities. • They are not long winded (usually 7 words or less) or profound (necessarily). In fact, some of the most powerful questions are the ones that sound the simplest: • What do you really want? What else? What's possible? • What makes a question powerful is how you choose to use it. You have to be willing to be bold, to interrupt, to ask the "dumb question," and most important, to shut up after asking it. • We are tempted to fill the silence, but that's where the gold is. That's the space where the person on the other end is doing the work and discovery. Give them room. Just sit back, wait, and... listen.

Stay focused and steady. But this is also really important, focus on your goals...not what so so and so is doing. When you get into that mode, you get stuck spinning your wheels Have you seen people always doing this or that “inspired” by someone else. You are like that hare. If you stop looking at others and stay true to yourself and your lane you will start to progress faster. . . . . #leadershipcoach #successcoach #fempreneur #entreprenuerlifestyle #careercoach #blackgirlmagic #confidencecoach #executivecoach #godsgirl #lifegoals #livebyfaith #bossmoves #goalgetter #goaldigger #motivation #faithoverfear #transformationcoach #womeninbusiness #womenempoweringwomen #womenoffaith #womenwhohustle #refreshwithekene #successquotes #successfulwomen #faithful #speaklife #motivation #proverbs31woman

What are you doing differently this year to produce the results you’re dreaming about? Did you know that the bridge between your dreams and achieving your goals is called execution? Faith = risk. Risk = action.

The real reason you don't accomplish your goals.It's either a combination of one or more of the following. . 1. You are stuck in the quicksand of "stuff" emotional, spiritual, physical etc. You've been resisting - Denial, projecting, defensiveness about your stuff. It's time to own it and deal with it, or it will keep dealing with you. Accept it and decide to work on it and grow through it. . 2.You are walking on a path and pursuing goals that are not authentic and so you are actually going against your own grain and fighting your own tides. I talked about this a bit in my 3V masterclass yesterday. Basically you have to discover yourself and gain the self confidence to be truly yourself. . 3.You are overwhelmed and overloaded with baggage that you need to release. Bitterness, unforgiveness, anger! All that stuff takes up mental space and energy. It's like a computer that is using up too much processing power on unnecessary tasks. Let it go! Let it go! . 4.You are relying just on a plan. And that plan is not strategic. Let me paint a picture for you. A plan is like a roadmap. It works by telling you what path to follow and what signposts to look for. But it doesn't take into account the vehicle you are driving, traffic conditions, fog etc. However a GPS tool like WAZE takes more into account. That's like strategy. It takes into account your unique advantages and challenges. It focuses on the why (purpose) before the how. You need a strategy. Not another plan. 5. You have a culture toxic to success. Lazy man habits, self defeating language, an addiction to drama and being a victim. Fix? Get clear, get focused and get accountable. . 6. You are hanging around with people who exhibit one or more of the above constantly. If your circle isn't going anywhere, you won't either. Your energy will slow to match the dominant ones in the group. Fix? . Change your circle! It's why the Refresh leadership circle is such a great investment.

Say “NO” more often this year to the opportunities that don’t support your vision, dreams and goals. Piling on additional pressure only drains your energy, which results in having leftover scraps to dedicate to what matters most. Give yourself permission to focus on what really matters. Something has to change in your routine to get different results this year.

A Winning Structure for Interview Answers: Most interviews fail because interviewees give badly structured answers or completely fail to answer the question. We recommend the PARADE method (over the STAR approach! ) to help you avoid this common interview mistake. The PARADE method is able to efficiently communicate not just WHAT you did, but WHY you did it, HOW you did it... and the IMPACT of your actions. PARADE is an acronym that stands for: P roblem
A nticipated Consequence
R ole
A ction
D ecision-Making Rationale

I just want to thank everyone who follows me. In 2018 I am dedicated to creating the most valuable content I possibly can to be of service. It’s easy to sometimes forget that what we choose to put on the internet will be on display for a very long time. With every post, we are leaving behind our legacy. Let’s make it a great one!

Leaders summit is a time where we recalibrate. It's a time where we look at what God is saying to us as a people, a time where leaders from across our 18 sites come together to unite our vision and mission for the new year. See you 26 January at 18:30!

I love this. Every superhero movie mentions this quote in some way but what about us mere mortals? We also have a responsibility to build our legacy, have an impact and make a difference in the world. . . Mahatma Gandhi said "be the change you want to see in the world" - what do you want to change? Use your influence for something amazing. At 20 I started a social enterprise helping people in the community, especially young people from disadvantaged backgrounds, to become more confident, more self-aware, access employment and training opportunities and have mentored thousands of people as a result of those amazing projects and programmes. What I've learned is that you don't have to do big and bold all the time, helping just one person can make a massive difference to them and the ripple effect of that is incredible. What are passionate about? Climate change, homelessness, animal rights, the environment, youth advocacy? Whatever the issue, there's always something we can do, however small we think that something is. . . What do you care about? What will your legacy be? . #amplifymyvoice #amplifymyyear #2018
