Welcome to the Leadership Pack for August 2016.
Each month I trawl through Ted.com so I can bring you the best (and most inspiring) leadership presentations. Again, I have brought you my Top 3 Picks for this month. If you twist my arm then my favourite is Shawn Achor’s ‘The Happy Secret to Better Work’ it’s a must see, so please try and find 15 minutes in your day to watch it.
I am always incredibly flattered to be invited to deliver any kind of training, especially when it is Project Management which is not actually my day job. Over the last few weeks I have delivered a new Project Management course for middle managers, an ILM Qualification for Team Managers within my organisation, and I have been filmed (twice) delivering Project Management training for Charityworks Management Trainees – both huge honours for me. One of my main messages for the success of your project is to identify your ‘Critical Path Analysis’. What are the activities which must take place on time (there is no float)? Identify them and let everyone know what they are. I have included an article on Critical Path Analysis towards the end of this month’s edition. Essential reading for your next project!
This month’s quotes have been taken from my wife’s @JoyceRaw1 and @livelikearaw twitter feeds – 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.
