Welcome to this month’s edition of Leadership Pack (September 2019).
Damian Piper, our resident Performance coach and consultant, starts this edition with ‘Time to get serious about time’ I am always looking for a different or new take on Time Management and, as ever, Damian doesn’t disappoint, with some original ideas which I will ponder on this month as I endeavour to improve my time management skills. Have you checked out Damian’s podcasts yet? They are available at www.effectivechallenge.com/podcasts or on all the major podcast platforms.
Recently I was trying to decide which would be the subject of my next blog post. Would it be a ‘Being Bettina’s Dad post ‘One of Us, One of Us’ or my take on supporting and managing a talent management pipeline? Then I received a message from a former colleague, who is part of our leadership network, asking if I could come up with some tips for his friend in another sector who has just taken on a supervisory leader position for a team. So here are my ‘20 Top Tips – For New Leaders’
I’ve enjoyed taking in each of my four Ted.com presentations this month. One presentation in particular has made me consider reformatting some of my next interview questions, so we are not just looking for IQ or EQ we will also consider AQ! When venture investor Natalie Fratto is determining which start-up founder to support, she doesn’t just look for intelligence or charisma; she looks for adaptability. In this insightful talk, Natalie shares three ways to measure your “adaptability quotient” — and shows why your ability to respond to change really matters.
This month I presented a number of staff awards to former team members (Sue, Boni and Maddy) in www.dosh.org the citation on their award is for “Distinguished service to Dosh and creating an enduring and positive legacy” Jim Rohn piece in this month’s edition sets out the principles we must commit to in order to leave the legacy we desire in “This Is How You Leave a Legacy”.
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!
