Welcome to the Leadership Pack for July 2018
Our first piece in this month’s edition is the new regular feature from Damian Piper from Effective Challenge http://effectivechallenge.com Damian asks us an incredibly important question in his blog post, when was the last time you pushed pause to take stock?
Farren Drury MBE, one of my heroes and someone I have had the honour to work for, has launched a new website http://www.gomakeityours.com as well as a Visual Success Map app called Make it Yours. The web and iPad based app is designed to help people achieve their goals and reach their maximum potential. So, if you have a dream or goal you are working towards, why not download the app and start your free trial.

Every day I wake up in gratitude for everything I have, do you? With my annual holiday to Whitby weeks away (on the North, East of England coast), I thought I would share with you a blog post I wrote in 2015 “Being Bettina’s Dad – Taking the time to be Grateful and showing Gratitude”. Reading this again today, I know how fortunate I am and it is important to remind myself of this especially when life gets busy and I am feeling under pressure.
Towards the end of June, I was interviewed for Forces Radio (BFBS) https://www.forces.net/radio a worldwide station for Her Majesty’s Forces. The interview was about people leaving the armed forces and employment opportunities available to them in the social care sector. It was an opportunity to promote my company Dosh www.dosh.org and my organisation Thera Trust www.thera.co.uk too. I had previously come up with a personal top 20 tips on how to transition into another career, which I shared with the radio presenter, Hal Stuart. I have edited them now however, so they work for any career (or job) transition. This can be seen in my last article in this edition.
This month’s quotes have been taken from my wife’s @JoyceRaw1 and @livelikearaw twitter feeds – thanks Joyce. I am also live on Twitter @DoshLtd sharing leadership thoughts from 7am, seven days a week. We welcome new followers!
