Welcome to the August 2018 Leadership Pack
I recently wrote a new post in my ‘Being Bettina’s Dad’ series whilst on holiday sitting; on the decking of our lodge. Being with Bettina always puts life into perspective and reminds me of what is important. Bettina teaches me so much and this particular piece is about her approach to relationships.
This month, as part of Damian’s Piper series (from Effective Challenge http://effectivechallenge.com) Damian discusses ‘Team trust and openness – awkward topic or team enabler? Why does it matter?’
My Top three picks fromTed.com. Each month I search through Ted.com for inspiring presentations for you; so you don’t have too. I have included three in this issue which I personally recommend:
- DE-CLUTTERING YOUR MIND. With so much going on in our lives how can we clear our minds and gain real clarity in order to become less stressed and more productive? Jamie Smart shows us how in this month’s edition.
- STAND OUT FROM THE CROWD. How to make yourself, what you do and your company memorable. “The formula of telling everybody how great you are with your state-of-the-art solutions, commitment to customer service and best prices in town just won’t cut it,” says marketing expert Lauron Sonnier, author of ‘Think Like a Marketer’.
- THE LEADERSHIP COMPASS. Professor Jonathan Perks’ compass model represents his eight ingredients for leadership and followership.
I was somewhat relieved to receive my printed copy of USA’s Success Magazine this month. After a restructure they have now gone to a quarterly edition. I can now stop pestering WH Smith assistants, asking them where my copy is (as Joyce calls it ‘my comic’). I have included some of their tips and guidance for you from the current issue and some from the regular emails they send me.
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!

It’s not about how good you are
It’s how good you want to be!
