Insights from the leadership planet by Eve and Eli

We work hard and our brains rest, process and re-charge as we sleep. When we though have been in a longer period of stress and hard work a night’s sleep might not be enough to fully re-charge our brains.

So therefore, when summer vacation is on it’s way, make sure to give your brain vacation as well. How we do this is ofcourse very individual but I heard a professor involved in brain reseach providing a few tips

  1. Prepare closing down before your vacation (you might even plan for when you will return) so that you can leave in peace.
  2. Use the impact being out in nature (forest, lakes etc) – it has a positive effect on you brain, can calm you down, can make you sleep better etc. A lot of reseach is down on how phytoncides from trees has positive affect on us human beings.
  3. Make sure to plan for pauses and even to become a bit bored during your vacation – it is a great way to wind down
  4. Make sure to be a bit selfish – what do YOU need to do to re-charge your brain

So let us give our brains some vacation to make sure to boost memory capacity, efficiency and creativity

We wish you (and your brain) a great vacation.

Insights from the leadership planet by Eve and Eli

We can use a lot of metaphors to reflect on ourselves. They are nice shortcuts to understand feelings that move us towards action. We have gathered the most important ways of representation for trust.

Which kind of image would you chose to represent the type of Trust you would like to inspire in others?

  1.  "A Lion”: strength and tenacity, like a lion in its environment, asserting ideas, defending objectives and leading the discussion.
  2. "A Rock": stability and solidity, like an unshakeable rock, reassuring anchor for those around.
  3. "A Ship Sailing Serenely in Turbulent Waters": remaining calm and in control, even in difficult or uncertain situations.
  4. "A Tree with Deep Roots": experimented and resilient, well-anchored and able to withstand challenges.
  5. "A Shining Star: standing out in a crowd, captivating the audience and leaving a lasting impression.
  6. "A Blazing Torch": source of light and guidance for self and others.
  7. "A Diamond in the Rough": with modest appearance but with something precious and special that may not be immediately visible to others.
  8. "A mountain peak": reaching a top goal thanks to tenacity and effort.
  9. "A soaring Eagle": overcoming challenges and soaring to new heights, pursuing dreams.
  10. "A Flower Blossoming in the Sun": empowerment and growth

Once you have your image, keep it in mind and do your best to align your vocabulary, actions and behaviors with it. Are you able to find out your team members’ metaphor?
