Welcome to the October Leadership Pack 2018.

Damian Piper from Effective Challenge (http://effectivechallenge.com ) has written another excellent piece especially for our Leadership Pack community called, ‘‘finding your bearings to move forward – what conversation do you need?” Thanks Damian, I especially liked your description of ‘projects’.

I am constantly learning and (hopefully) developing as a person and a leader.  I am convinced this is because of the people I surround myself with – my work colleagues and my family. Two of those people are my daughters and they celebrated their birthdays this month, so I took the opportunity of including two new blog posts in this month’s leadership pack.  What I have learnt from Jennifer about being a Role Model and, as part of my series of BEING BETTINA’S DAD: ‘Enchanting by being fascinating and delightful.’

I think you will find this month’s edition crammed with top tips, hints, guides and presentations that will help you on your leadership journey.  I especially wanted to highlight the following articles for:

Each article meets my original aim, set out in the first edition of the Leadership Pack in 2006, which is designed to:

  • Complement your reading and learning
  • be thought provoking
  • be light-hearted
  • be a quick read for busy managers and supervisors
  • be a checklist
  • check that your thinking is on the right track
  • be supportive

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!
