LEADERSHIP COACHING AND MENTORING –PACK
Established in 2006
Welcome to this month’s edition.
Damian Piper CBE our Resilience Coach starts this month edition with: What are you giving oxygen to? “ ………When presented with a destructive situation (or people for that matter) it’s rare there is much to be gained by adding to the destruction. Most people could rationally agree with that.” I read Damian’s article first thing on Monday morning – I know what to do now. I highly recommend this article to you too.
A new article from me: The second leadership lesson I learned – Self Discipline “……With the rain and wind in my face, I run up the hill for the tenth time. This is one of my fitness sessions – hill repetitions which I believe will help with my stamina and strengthen my joints. To be honest, I didn’t really want to do this session this morning because of the weather, and I could think of lots of other things I could do instead which are less exhausting and painful. So why do I do it?” You will have to read it to find out.
From one of our readers: Influence: lessons from business for teaching, part 3 by Sam Pullan “…… Car dealers. Marketing executives. Phone companies. Waiters. Teachers. What do we all have in common? We all want people to do what we want. Buy stuff, read stuff, eat stuff, do stuff, don’t do stuff, do stuff differently. It’s not always easy……….”
Endurance: Shackleton’s lost ship is found in Antarctic. Have you been following Dan Snow’s story about how he and his team have found his ship which was thought to have been crushed?
