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!
