Welcome to this month’s Leadership Pack. Highlights include:
What would people think about you if you were no longer there? When your name is mentioned what would people say about you? My first article in this month’s leadership pack is from my ‘Being Bettina’s Dad’ series and it is about leaving a legacy. It came to mind while we were on our annual holiday in Whitby the impact Bettina has on the guests and staff at the hotel where we stay. What would be the legacy you would want to leave for people who are significant in your life?
If you would like to read more posts about Bettina and how she has developed me as a person and as a leader please check out my blog www.leadershipintheraw.org Bettina is my youngest daughter who copes with a learning disability and autism, and her parents and big sister think she is awesome.
Simon Bailey, the Managing Director for http://www.lspleadership.com/ who is part of our leadership network has kindly shared an extract from a book he has read. ‘Regrets of the dying!’ http://www.bronnieware.com/regrets-of-the-dying/ the piece in this month’s edition includes five regrets from the book.
Another one of our regular contributors to the Leadership Pack, and a valued Trainer for my organisation in ‘Resilience’, is Damian Piper http://effectivechallenge.com/ I spotted a post on LinkedIn which Damian shared “10 Ways to Be More Mindful at Work” an article adapted from Mindfulness at Work for Dummies by Shamash Alidina and Juliet Adams. It has helped me and I hope it helps you too.
Have you discovered USA ‘Success’ Magazine yet? I have it on monthly subscription from WH Smith’s and look forward to its arrival. You can also access their interviews on YouTube with thought leaders who have been successful in business. The magazine and interviews have given me many ideas for my own leadership and work and I recommend the magazine to you. In this month’s copy I have included ‘6 WAYS TO BECOME A HIGH PERFORMER’.
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. We welcome new followers!
