Dogfooding with powerful questions

An experiment of using powerful questions for self-coaching Over the last months I stumbled across powerful questions for agile teams multiple times. Powerful questions help with emerging change, they are open for the client’s mental models and they literally invite to introspection and new perspectives.

Regular personal retrospectives?

Experimenting with celebrating success and personal goal setting It is been around 6 weeks ago. To be honest, I felt emotionally cringed and generally not in a too good shape back then.

Can we make change a habit?

Change "by heart" – in business and life. Originally I wanted to write a blog post on building habits in general because this is what influenced and touched me the most during the last weeks. And it is something I definitely want to share with you out there. Then I just fired up the blogging […]

Who Says? – Experimenting with your core beliefs

Who Says? On new year’s eve I read this tweet of my friend Marianne where she planned to ask ‘Who says?’ more often in 2017. This little question already made me think in this moment but I did not expect that it would keep working that long in my mind. I find it easy to […]

Random New Year Ramblings

Some more personal retrospective 2016 bits & thoughts for the new year 2017 New Year’s Eve 2016 has been special for me as I deliberately spent it on my own. Just on my own. For the first time ever. Looking back on yesterday it was kind of ‘slack time’ for me. Nothing to do, nothing […]

What running means to me

A part of my personal retrospective 2016 & a loveletter to running itself A couple of days ago I set one of my targets for 2017: I’ll do the full Marathon in October 2017. I actually signed up, payed the fee, whoop! No way back! Yes, of course, there would be a way back e.g. […]
