Treat Yourself With A Gift

Updated: Apr 18

The holiday season is upon us. It is not too late to treat yourself, and your team, with a nice end-of-the year gift, and start 2020 on the right foot. ​

Educate yourself

Below are my book recommendations:

  • I am a big fan of Simon Senek's work. He has the ability to turn complex issues into simple concepts. I recommend Start With Why as well as his latest book The Infinite Game.  

  • My management bible: The Rules of Management, by Richard Templar. I have been successfully using many of these rules through out my career. 

  • Scaling Up, by Verne Harnish and his team, which is full of practical tools and techniques to grow your business 10x. Particularly adapted for your leadership team. 

  • Jim Collins has compiled 5-year research results into one book titled Good to Great, to understand why and how some companies become great, while others don't. I especially enjoy the description of the Level 5 Leadership

Next books on my reading list: This is Marketing by Seth Godin, The Chimp Paradox by Dr. Steve Peters, and Emotional Intelligence: Why it Can Matter More than IQ by Daniel Goleman

Take care of yourself

As a CrossFit addict and a CF-L1 Trainer, I must emphasize the importance of exercising regularly. Being healthy and in good physical shape will significantly improve your efficiency at work and at home.   I was not really taking care of myself before I found this sport. It has transformed my life, to the point where I know I am not going back to the previous me. I feel stronger, I am more relaxed, I think sharper, and I work faster.  ​ There is no age to be the fittest version of yourself.  Stop procrastinating and buy yourself a membership for the most suitable physical activity for you, something you can perform minimum 3 times per week. It should not feel like a burden. Instead, it should be the moment to be with yourself, forget everything else, and simply enjoy the challenge. 

The secret weapon

I will conclude by the best gift you can reward yourself with: A notebook and a pen! Entrepreneurs' minds are always full of ideas and things to do. Go back to the basics: write them down to get them out of your brain, archive them, and free up mental space for new stuff. 

Enjoy the holiday season! 



Of course business coaching is an excellent gift to put yourself on the right tracks for the new year. Training courses, in Leadership for example, are a nice way to reward your team while improving their skills. Book a time with me to talk further about it.
