Welcome to the Leadership Pack (August 2019).

This month I have included two of my own posts. Whilst on holiday in 2014 I wrote a blog post “20 ‘Leadership Lessons – A Week in Whitby with Bettina” Five years later, and another holiday with Bettina in Whitby, so I have updated the article with additional and relevant links to most of these lessons. My new post in the ‘Being Bettina’s Dad’ series, is about her perseverance: BEING BETTINA’S DAD – BETTINA’S PERSEVERANCE IN THE FACE OF ADVERSITY I have and continue to use Bettina’s lessons in perseverance to achieve my objectives both at work with http://www.dosh.org and in my personal life too. So what are Bettina’s lessons in perseverance? Dive into this month’s edition to find out.
Dawn Sowerby, our new regular contributor to our Leadership Pack, shares her post with us: ‘Get yourself a method, not a meltdown’ if you are keen to improve your time management skills (as I am) I think these messages from Dawn will help you.
Instead of Complaining, Remember These 10 Things. John C. Maxwell tells us: “A faint but discernible dividing line separates achievers from dreamers. What makes the difference? Attitude. Achievers have a can-do attitude that sets them apart from mere dreamers. Achievers are sold out to success—no matter the obstacles—and they are willing to put forth the effort and pay the price of success. John shares his 10 Top Tips in his article.
There is so much more inside this month’s edition, I hope you enjoy it.
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!
