Welcome to the Coaching and Mentoring – February 2019 Leadership Pack

From Damian Piper, our Performance coach and consultant: Time for high-quality questions?

 “Being able to ask high-quality questions of ourselves and others is a skill worth developing”

The first article in this month’s edition and also the first post I always look forward to reading.

My latest blog post ‘DO WHAT IS IMPORTANT AND LET THE REST GO’ Two stories in one post which could not be more different? Bettina and my approach might be different but the key things we worked out are what were important to us and we let the rest go.

Joyce and I are thrilled to see that someone we have long admired has been awarded an OBE in the New Years Honours list. Gary Smith is the Head Teacher of Market Field School in Elmstead Market. A richly deserved honour for someone we hold in the highest esteem and for whom we have the greatest respect. A few years ago I wrote this: ‘A Role Model for VISION’. The Company I work for www.dosh.org are looking forward to delivering Money Awareness Training for their students and families later this month.

Each month I trawl through presentations on Ted.com for inspiring, moving and thought provoking presentations so you don’t have to. This also helps me with my professional development. One of the presentations I particularly enjoyed and I have been promoting on twitter is this one:   https://www.ted.com/talks/kathryn_schulz_on_being_wrong
Most of us will do anything to avoid being wrong, but what if we’re wrong about that? “Wrongologist” Kathryn Schulz makes a compelling case for not just admitting but embracing our fallibility.

There are many more articles, tips and links in this leadership pack, and I hope you enjoy this month’s copy as much I have enjoyed putting it together.

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!
