This month we are pleased to share a truly inspiring story from Anthony Hehir, Vice President Global Talent Acquisition at DSM.We asked Anthony what he would like to share with other leaders and what matters in this constantly challenging world that we are living in. Without the need to pause or consider his answer, Anthony told us that “it is the ability to authentically connect as human beings.”Read the full article here:

 This month’s newsletter is about making personal connections. Steve is a firm believer that when you can’t control what’s going on around you, which right now is a lot…you should focus on what you can control. And what you can control, is who you talk to today.

You don’t need a keyboard to lead… you only need the desire to make something happen,”

Seth Godin states in this months REAL. Leadership library book “Tribes: We Need You to Lead Us.”

This book encourages the putting away of old ideals and embracing new ones that propel us into the future, that eke out a new order, a new idea, a new group.

But do we all have the confidence to take the lead?

Seth wrote, “The sceptical among us look at the idea of leadership and we hesitate. We hesitate because it feels like something we need to be ordained to do. That without authority, we can’t lead. That big organisations reserve the leadership for the CEO, not us.”

Encouraging us to look inside ourselves for inspiration and motivation by studying what we’re passionate about, Seth makes us wonder, “Really who are we not to lead?”

This book will inspire you to reach out and try new things, to become a leader and find your own tribe who will share your views.

What our clients have to say….

“Don’t go through your professional life without experiencing Steve’s leadership consultancy. You could be missing out on your most amazing personal and professional growth.”

Maria Bettencourt Tavares, CEO and Founder of LOONAWELL
