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:
- Tasha Eurich ‘Increase your self awareness with one simple fix’
- ‘3 questions to ask in 3 awkward situations’ from David Taylor
- ‘5 Times to Trust Your Gut’ from Margie Warrell
- ‘Being Successful Is a Personal Choice’ from Jim Rohn
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!
