Welcome to the March Leadership Pack, with a special focus on: health, wellbeing and staying strong.

I was involved in a meeting this month which had ‘Mindfulness’ on its agenda, so I did some research on the subject. What I found was that my youngest daughter has been practicing mindfulness for years. I have included Bettina’s mindful story in this month’s edition because I wanted to help you to practice “being in the moment” in this very busy world. I hope it inspires you

I enjoy writing about leadership on my blog http://www.leadershipintheraw.org, but what I really look forward to is when Damian Piper damian@effectivechallenge.com sends me a guest blog. He has done one for this month and I have included his excellent piece in this month’s edition “Team trust and openness – awkward topic or team enabler?” If you like this, please check out his post on ‘Resilience’ on my blog, I recommend it.

You know how I always include the best three video presentations I have taken in from http://www.ted.com this month? Well, unfortunately, I couldn’t get it down to three this month (sorry!), so I have included four! They all have a mindful feel to them. Each one left me feeling peaceful and happy and I hope they have the same effect on you.

From my Diploma in Coaching, I came across some excellent coaching questions which I wanted to share with you. Are you coaching someone, or mentoring someone with a project, and want to try something a little different next time you are supporting someone through their ‘Supervision’? Why not give these questions a go and see the results?

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!

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