Welcome to your copy of the Leadership pack (December 2017).

I have a series called ‘Being Bettina’s Dad’ and as it is Christmas, I have again included her Christmas Tale.  For more of her lessons in life please go to www.leadershipintheraw.org and search for Bettina, a person who copes with Autism and a Learning Disability.

One of my mentors is my wife Joyce.  Back in 1996, as I was leaving my first career and looking for a second, she said to me:  “Steve, you are a long time at work so it is important you do something you love and enjoy” I did, and I share my story in this edition as the company I work for celebrates it’s 10th Anniversary:  LOVE THE JOB YOU ARE IN – OR WHY I LOVE WORKING FOR DOSH LTD

One of the joys of putting my Leadership Pack together over the last 11 years  is reaching people from a wide range of professions who are also ‘thought leaders’, one of whom has generously shared a blog post he has just written ‘Making Meetings Effective‘ – Ian Mclintock Facilitation and Charity Sector Consulting.

Something new for 2018 “Nothing so conclusively proves a man’s ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself.  –  Thomas J. Watson Future editions will include some tips on getting the best out of yourself, helping you to give your ‘A Game’ everyday.  This month it is about looking after your posture and your back.

And my final article for this month: ‘Improve Your Executive Presence’ Stanford GSB lecturer and coach Allison Kluger teaches entrepreneurs how to communicate like a leader.

I hope you enjoy the December edition of the Leadership Pack; I have enjoyed sharing ideas and information with you on leadership and management throughout 2017 and I wish you a Merry Christmas.  Thank you for your support.

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!
