Welcome to the September Leadership Pack 2018

This month, Damian Piper (Effective Challenge http://effectivechallenge.com ) has added to his series with ‘a moment to reflect – pressure on our shoulders.’ This is now my favourite post from Damian.  I hope you enjoy reading it too.

You don’t have to be an entrepreneur (someone with a big idea) to find our second article of interest. ‘OVERCOME ENTREPRENEURIAL ANXIETY, 6 WAYS TO STAY IN CHARGE.’

In our society, the entrepreneurs who make it big, tend to achieve hero status.  People look at them and think they have it all together.  But many of the most successful leaders in business face challenges similar to the rest of us.

Each month, I trawl through Ted.com for inspiring presentations, so you don’t have to.  My criteria is:  Do they inspire? Do they make you think differently? And will they help me in my leadership role?  The first of my four chosen presentations comes from Celeste Headlee – it certainly met my criteria.

Something I look forward to and something I very much enjoy, is delivering training to managers and leaders.  Last week, I had the pleasure of delivering my organisation’s ILM Management Qualification (Project Management module) in Scotland.  Tomorrow, I am meeting with some colleagues to discuss the possibility of designing a Project Management methodology for our organisation.  With my Project Management hat still on, I have included a piece on ‘Estimating Time and Resources.’

During a break in last weeks workshop, we had a conversation about work ‘cultures’ (how we do things around here). I shared my take on the culture within you.  This is our last article in this month’s edition.  Do you have a work culture in your team? Most importantly, have you written it down and shared it?

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!
