Welcome to the Leadership Pack September 2016.

I hope you have had a good summer.  I have included a couple of posts that I put together during my recent holiday.  “To be someone must be a wonderful thing” about my youngest daughter Bettina who is definitely someone and ‘My Happy Place’ – what it is and why everyone should have one.  As always the posts (and this leadership pack) only aim is to inspire you.W

I have really enjoyed choosing three presentations from www.ted.com  Have you ever been troubled by Spam emails?  If so there is a presentation included here just for you ‘James Veitch – This is what happens when you reply to spam email’ it has been viewed by eight million people!  A good reason to give it a try?

During my career in the Army, I was always looking to improve my style of explaining things to people I was responsible for (I am still trying to improve).   A tip from me – don’t manage by assumption (I got caught out when I did) so don’t assume a thing.  The ILM piece has more tips on ‘EXPLAINING THINGS’ which I can recommend.

As soon as I complete and send my leadership pack out, my next job is to prepare for a presentation I have been invited to deliver tomorrow in Basildon, Essex, on Individual Budgets from a parent’s perspective.  Later in the week I am joining some of my colleagues from Thera www.thera.co.uk  to deliver a mini workshop as part of the ‘Safe and Secure’ book launch in Loughborough.  I would like to share with you   ‘Being Bettina’s Dad:  When love is not enough to keep you Safe and Secure

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