Welcome to this month’s edition – now in our 10th anniversary year!
I often see articles about what makes a great leader, but rarely have I seen anything on what makes a great boss. I wanted to re-address the balance and written something on the subject of great bosses in my experience. I have chosen my three favourite bosses to illustrate the kind of person that makes them a great person to work for. If you are responsible for others this is perhaps a good checklist to self-assess against.
I take my time choosing three video presentations for you each month which I hope will inspire and move you. I think I have achieved this with the ones I have included this month. I know how busy you are and you may not have time to watch them all, so if you only have time to take in one then I recommend Matthew Williams’ talk. He is a Special Olympics Champion talking about how competition and camaraderie can transform lives. Enjoy.
I have also included a blog post from my wife Joyce; ‘Being Bettina’s Mum & Dad: Discovery & Endurance’. Joyce shares our experiences of how our daughter, who copes with learning disabilities and autism, has changed and shaped who we are today.
This month I have been delivering Project Management workshops for Thera’s ILM Qualification and a Webinar for Charityworks Management Trainees. This has prompted me to include an excellent piece on Project Management in this month’s edition – if you are about to start a project this is essential reading, which I highly recommend to you.
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!
