It has been fascinating putting this month’s Leadership Pack together! Why? Because of the contributions from some of our leadership network.
- It is always a privilege when Damian Piper shares one of his insights on leadership and sport, Damian’s latest piece is our first article, I also recommend checking out his website, www.effectivechallenge.com
- Over the course the month I take in as many presentations from www.ted.com as I can: each one is inspiring and is learning for me. From those I have watched and listened to, I pick out 3 which I think and hope you will enjoy. Included this month are definitely 3 of the best: ‘The Forgotten History of Autism’ ‘Why it’s time to forget the pecking order at work’ and ‘A Kinder Gentler Philosophy of Success’
- As a runner and a former athlete I have often wondered what it would have been like to have taken on the ‘3 Peaks Challenge’ I never got round to doing it so the next best thing is knowing someone who has! I caught up with Paul Pargeter who is the Head of Best Practice for Dimensions who recently completed this incredible challenge and asked him if he would be a guest blogger for www.leadershipintheraw.org If you have not checked out my blog recently here is his inspiring piece ‘Experiencing friendship, courage and kindness’
- Karen Boyce Dawson, Director of Operations and Executive Director for Thera Group share’s with us ‘15 Ways Successful People Approach Life Differently’ I have read this three times – it is that good!
My thanks and appreciation also go out to Sam Pullan who is a Head of Department and Teacher for his school and Justin Smith, Operations Manager and who is a regular contributor, for their links which I have included in this month’s pack
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.
