Your business, profession or leadership role is a reflection of who you are and how you present professionally and in life more generally. Use these questions to check the alignment between your nonwork life and working life.
  • Analysing your values

    • What do you value about the nature of your business and your role in it?

    • What do you value about your life?

    • Are these in alignment? If not, what needs to change?

  • Doing the work vs. working on the business

    • How much time do you spend working on your business (planning, marketing, networking, and so on) as opposed to working in your business (day-to-day delivery and administration)?

    • Does the balance feel right at this stage of development?

  • Being the best you

    • Are you doing your best work right now? If not, why not? What is getting in the way? What will you do about that?

    • Are you being your best in the roles you hold outside of work with family, friends, membership organisations and any clubs you are part of? What is working well? Does your leisure time align with your values and create a sense of personal success?
