Welcome to the May leadership pack. I have again included a couple of my blogs posts from www.leadershipintheraw.org and both are from my series; ‘Being Bettina’s Dad’. Bettina is a major source of inspiration (as is my other daughter Jennifer).

The first piece is being ‘Significant’ and having significance as a leader.  The second post and the last article includes 20 leadership lessons I have learnt from Bettina which I try to use day to day – 20 Leadership Lessons – A Week in Whitby with Bettina was part of a presentation I gave this month to managers from Thera North.

I hope you enjoy my 3 picks from www.ted.com they inspire me I hope they move you too.

‘Selling Begins at Home. Don’t forget to hawk positivity inside your company’. In 2015 I am learning all I can about ‘Sales’ I see it as a key part of my role, I am reading books, listening to CDs and I have the good fortune to receive some 1-1 coaching on sales from a Director of a blue chip company.  I sourced this article from USA’s Success Magazine.

Also this month I had the good fortune to be invited to deliver a presentation ‘An Introduction to Project Management’  to the Facilities Team of Thera Trust as part of their Away Day, so this was a good prompt to include some top tips on Project Management.  I hope they help you on your next project.

Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) NLP, a methodology designed to study, model and train individuals in human excellence.  Another way of describing NLP is as your own personal toolbox for accessing and influencing the human mind.  I have included a rookie’s guide on NLP.

This month’s quotes have been taken from my wife’s @JoyceRaw1 twitter feed – thanks Joyce. I am also on Twitter:  @DoshLtd sharing leadership thoughts at 7am, 7 days a week.  I welcome new followers!

It’s not about how good you are,

It’s how good you want to be

Keep making a difference in people’s lives and have a successful month.
