Welcome to the January edition of the Leadership Pack.. Happy New Year, I hope 2017 is going to be your best year so far.

This is a New Year edition so there are two blog posts from www.leadershipintheraw.org celebrating the New Year and hopefully getting you off to a good start with a plan.  Two of my most important messages to you are to consider replacing ‘resolutions’ (they are just wishes) with ‘commitments’ and don’t forget to be kind to yourself this year

I think I have chosen three excellent video presentations from Ted.com for you this month.  It was difficult to choose which one is my favourite; I will leave that to you.  They cover how to control your free time, what I learned from rejection and why some people are more altruistic than others.

There are a series of master classes I have chosen for you that cover a range of subjects from ‘apologising’ to connecting people (with lots more tips and advice in between).

I am very much looking forward to delivering Project Management training for Team Managers as part of their ILM Management Qualification in a couple of weeks time.  I have attached a supplement to this month’s edition, an excellent introduction to Project Management from ‘Mindtools’ which gives you a framework for your projects in 2017.

My final article, again, comes from me and is part of the of the “Being Bettina’s Dad” series on my blog Leadershipintheraw.org.  I have been reflecting on how being Bettina’s Dad relates to my leadership style over my two careers.  I hope you find it interesting.

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!
