I would like to start this edition with thanks and gratitude to those who have contributed to the monthly pack throughout 2020. I would like to thank Joyce who provides the quotes and who also has the onerous task of proofreading my blog posts and publishers letter to you at the beginning of each pack. I would especially like to thank everyone who sends me wonderful messages about both the Leadership & Engagement pack and blog posts ‘Being Bettina’s Dad’ series. Your emails make my day! Thank you for your support.
Our highlights include three articles from our thought leaders: Damian Piper, Meike Beckford and Roger Whalley, and one of mine.
Opening this month’s edition ‘Making more of your 168 hours a week’ “The demands on our time often outstrip the 168 hours a week we all get. This can lead to things you want to achieve getting deprioritised, frustration and in some cases a real feeling of overwhelm” is this you? Damian our Resiliance Coach, can help!
Leading when you are not holding a Leadership Position. “Not everyone in the organisation’s email address directory is employed in a management position, however I believe their work influences people, and I consider them a leader, so this publication is as much for them as it is for managers. My youngest daughter Bettina who copes with a learning disability and autism is a leader, even though she doesn’t have a leadership job title, and this latest article in ‘Being Bettina’s Dad’ series explains how her leadership is significant.
An article from Meike Beckford is on Human Rights Day (10th December), Meike looks back at a topic that has interested her for a long time. Meike began to think about how this might relate to leadership. I think this is essential reading for all leaders, thank you Meike.
‘RESPECT’ a new article from Roger Whalley. RESPECT “you must give it to receive it. If you respect the people you lead; their beliefs, their abilities; their ambitions; their weaknesses; etc., you can begin to understand what the drivers are that bring them to work each day”
