The questions you should be asking yourself


Maybe you’ve been a leader for a while or you might be relatively new to your leadership role. If you find yourself having these thoughts:

  • Why am I not progressing in my career

  • Why is everyone else getting the promotions and not me

  • Maybe I need a university degree that will give me the quality label

  • How can I motivate my team better

  • Why is my up-line not clearer


Stop for a while and take a time-off. One very important thing you need to understand about questions is that every question has a presumption. So what are the presumptions of the above thoughts or questions?

  • (Why am I not progressing in my career) I can’t progress

  • (Why is everyone else getting the promotions and not me) I can’t get a promotion

  • (Maybe I need a university degree that will give me the quality label) My experience is not enough

  • (How can I motivate my team better) I don’t know how to motive my team


Let’s therefor change the presumptions before you ask yourself a question or allow yourself a conscious thought. Let’s for instance have as a starting point the following presumptions:

  • I can progress

  • I can get a promotion

  • My experience is enough

  • I know how to motivate my team


With these new presumptions I would like you to give yourself 5-10 minutes and write down new questions. These questions will empower you to take the actions towards what you wish and desire.


We help managers and c-level executives be in the best shape of their careers and stop worrying about their leadership. If you would like us to challenge you with our questions that empower and create positive change in people’s lives book a 15 min call with us.


There’s a limited number of calls we will be taking. Early birds will benefit. When the available calls are gone we won’t be taking any more. So please don’t get upset if we can’t take yours if you’re late.
