Welcome to the Christmas edition of the Leadership Pack (December 2017).
If there is a theme to this month’s edition I think it is ‘Resilience’. I have been inspired this month by a recent Resilience workshop delivered by Damian Piper from Effective Challenge.

Over the years we have nudged many professionals working with Bettina out of their comfort zones by persuading them to take risks and push Bettina’s knowledge and skills forward, on the basis that until we do this we will not know what she is capable of achieving.
One of the many lessons Bettina has taught me, that I strive to include in my life, is that no matter what has gone on in her world the day before, when she wakes up to Joyce’s knock on her bedroom door she is ready ‘to go again’
