Welcome to the Leadership Pack (June 2019).

Damian Piper, our Performance coach and consultant, starts this edition with ‘Pride on the Inside’. After reading Damian’s article I am definitely going to do as he suggests “Over the next week pick one source that generates internal pride”

I was recently fortunate enough to attend Thera’s leadership conference. One of the workshop facilitators was Dawn Sowerby. I enjoyed her presentation so much that before Dawn had the opportunity to leave the building; I quickly made contact with her and asked if she would be interested in being part of our Leadership Pack. I was successful and I have included two articles from Dawn: ‘You don’t have to work for Google to innovate’ and ‘So your boss is driving you mad! (And how to cope…)’

Each month I trawl through Ted talks on Ted.com and YouTube to find presentations to put in the pack. This month I found four thought provoking and inspirational presentations and even one of my favourite poems.

I consider myself lucky to be invited to, and have the opportunity, to deliver training workshops. It is something I have always enjoyed doing and I get to spend quality time and learn what is important to people. In a few weeks time I will be delivering a leadership workshop based on building teams. For inspiration I have returned to a post I wrote some years ago ‘Great Teams – Winning Teams’

Five years ago I wrote the Dosh Leadership Way, I believe it reflects our ‘culture’ (the way we do things around here). Our leadership way is included in our handbook for colleagues and we live it every day. Five years later I have written a leadership code which I have started to share with our team. After a period of consultation with colleagues, I will share it with you (hopefully in July’s edition). Until then I have included the original post from 2014 as the last article in this month’s edition.

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!

It’s not about how good you are,

It’s how Good You want to be
