Welcome to the February Leadership Pack 2017.
Often being competitive can receive a ‘bad press’ so I wanted to re address the balance in my article “Getting Competitive with a Social Conscience” What being competitive means to me. I believe you can be competitive and have a competitive edge, but at the same time be there to help up those around you.
I hope you will enjoy watching the three selections I have made for you from Ted.com as much as I did.
- Emilie Wapnick – Why some of us don’t have one true calling. This one resonated with me as I have a number of areas of work I am passionate about and that’s ok.
- Jason Fried – Why work doesn’t happen at work this is relevant to how often we work in www.dosh.org how about you?
- Tom Wujec – Build a Tower the ‘Marshmallow Problem’ I first saw this exercise at a Charityworks www.charity-works.co.uk assessment day. Something you may wish to try?
An article from my wife Joyce “When Being takes over Blogging” When I read the first paragraph I thought this one might be about me spending too much time on my blog (I am assured it is not). It is about getting on and living your life. I am certainly going to do a lot more ‘being’ this month.
I have the good fortune to be attending (with a number of colleagues) a workshop in March delivered by Damian Piper from Effective Challenge on ‘Resilience’ If you are a regular subscriber to the Leadership Pack you will have read a number of his articles. I am pleased to include one in this month’s edition; “Routines – good idea or bad idea?” I recommend Damian’s website to you as an excellent leadership and coaching resource: www.effectivechallenge.com
I am currently in the middle of delivering a ILM Project Management course to managers and I promised I would include an excellent article on ‘Critical Path Analysis’. I also thought it would help you on your next project to help you identify activities that must be completed in order to finish a 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!
