Welcome to the Coaching and Mentoring Leadership Pack 

“We often spend January 1st walking through our lives, room by room, drawing up a list of work to be done; cracks to be patched. Maybe this year, to balance the list, we ought to walk through the rooms of our lives… not looking for flaws; but for potential.”  Ellen Goodman

Happy New Year! and I hope you had a terrific Christmas. Everything about this edition is aimed at supporting you to have the best year ever. I have included a personal post about making commitments instead of resolutions. I never seemed to be able to keep to resolutions so I have been making commitments for the last 30 years and you know what? It works for me. Let’s commit to making 2019 our best year yet.

New Year – Get Clear! From one of my hero’s,

From our Resilience coach Damian Piper‘s piece ‘Want peace of mind to enjoy the holiday season?’

I picked out his for his 4Ds:





Thanks Damian for sharing this with our Leadership Pack readers too.

Each month I trawl Ted.com for presentations which I think may inspire you. I hope the four I have chosen hit the mark this month. If you only have time to take in one I personally recommend: Looking to get ahead in your career? Start by being respectful to your co-workers, says leadership researcher Christine Porath.

This month’s quotes have been taken from my wife’s @JoyceRaw1 and @livelikearaw twitter feeds – thanks Joyce.
I am also live on Twitter: @DoshLtd sharing leadership thoughts at 7am, 7 days a week. We welcome new followers!
