Leadership Pack (November 2018)

Welcome to the November Leadership Pack 2018

I was looking forward to receiving our Resilience Coach Damian’s article, especially for the Leadership Pack. A key message I have taken from Damian’s piece, which leads this month’s edition, is “begin to realise, it’s your interpretation of events that cause us challenges not the things themselves.” I am going to recall this statement each time I face a situation over the coming weeks and months. Thanks Damian.

One of the chief aims of the Leadership Pack is that it will inspire and move you. I can’t think of a better article to do this than “Be aware, be very aware!” written by my colleague, Sarah Bolger. November is Diabetes Awareness Month and Sarah asks us what does that actually mean?

For me, November is about reflecting on how the year has gone and planning for the year ahead. I do this in my personal life and for our company . I have written a blog post, ‘GET UP AND GO! TAKE A LEAP FORWARD – PART 1’ (Creating your Business Plan for life and work). Part 2 will feature in January’s edition.

Mental toughness is a choice and a discipline, not an innate quality bestowed upon the lucky. In this article: ‘15 Qualities of Mentally Tough People,” Dr Travis Bradberry shows you how to get tough.

This month, I have chosen five presentations which I personally recommend. Included in this month’s selection is one from the late Stan Lee, the creator of a large chunk of the Marvel Universe. Stan Lee knew a thing or two about conjuring new superheroes from thin air. Another asks, why do some people do selfless things, helping other people even at risk to their own well-being? You will need to watch Abigail Marsh to find out.

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!
