Welcome to the Leadership and Engagement Pack (January 2020).
“We 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 2020 our best year yet.
I highly recommend articles from three of our Leadership & Engagement community:
- Weeding – necessary to improve the garden and mind? From Damian Piper
- Highlights from an MBA: Leadership – Tame, wicked … and critical by Meike Beckford
- New Year – Get Clear! An important message from Farren Drury MBE
New on social media from me: Instagram: @thera.leadership if you would like to keep up with what I am doing in my new role as Head of Workforce Strategy & Engagement for Thera Group you could always follow me.
“Every man should be born again on the first day of January. Start with a fresh page. Take up one hole more in the buckle if necessary, or let down one, according to circumstances; but on the first of January let every man gird himself once more, with his face to the front, and take no interest in the things that were and are past” Henry Ward Beecher
This month’s quotes have been taken from my wife’s @JoyceRaw1 and @livelier twitter feeds – thanks Joyce. I am also live on Twitter: @SteveRaw836 sharing leadership thoughts at 7am, 7 days a week. We welcome new followers!
