Welcome to the Leadership pack (March 2017).

Earlier this week myself, and 40 other managers, had the good fortune to attend an excellent workshop on ‘Resilience’ from Damian Piper from ‘Effective Challenge’. We covered a number of tools and support mechanisms to support us with our resilience. One of the tools used was P.R.I.M.E. (Physical, Rest, Intake, Mind and Energy). Thanks to Damian, PRIME is now both integral to my work and my running programme. For more information on PRIME I recommend you check out Damian’s website; http://effectivechallenge.com/?s=PRIME

Had a bad day? Things didn’t go well for you yesterday? Believe me I feel your pain. So, specially for you, I have included something I recently wrote about what I have learned from Bettina and how together ‘Today we go again’. Following Bettina’s lessons, I always bounce back, no matter what the situation or experience I’ve endured. I hope these tips work for you (and that they also inspire you).

I have been privileged this month to receive two guest blog posts: one from Ian McLintock ‘20 things you can do to be a better board member’ and, from a regular subscriber to our Leadership Pack, Nick Wright ‘Plan & Prepare’. I found both articles insightful and educational and I hope you enjoy reading them too. They are already posted on to my blog http://www.leadershipintheraw.org

There is a good balance of Ted.com presentations chosen for this month which include: humour, inspiration and education on each topic. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
It was ‘International Womens Day’ recently which immediately made me think of my oldest daughter Jennifer who to me is a great role model, not just to Bettina, but on how to lead a life. This is what a role model means to me. Who are your role models?

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!
