Coming to America
I couldn’t be more excited that I’m flying to America this Friday for the launch of my book “Where The Magic Happens”. I’ve got a 3 week long book tour starting in Annapolis, then Washington DC, New York and San Francisco (and potentially a few other locations too).
If you’ve not pre-ordered your copy - either in Hard Back, Kindle version or Audiobook (read by me), then now would be the perfect time :). It’s got plenty of colour images and the first critics reviews in have been very kind and lovely to read.
Some companies have been placing large orders for their teams. Maybe your company would like to do this too?
If you’re in any of those locations between March 24 and April 14, it would be brilliant to connect.
Learning from my children
We sat round the dinner table last night listening to our children sharing what they’d learnt at school.
My oldest daughter talked about gymnastics and dance.
My son talked about science.
It made me think about each child and how they are all uniquely different.
Several days earlier I’d watched for the umpteenth time the humorous and memorable Sir Ken Robinson talk on why schools are killing creativity. His take is that we need to encourage each child to follow their natural skills and talents.
Why is this advice just for our children?
Isn’t it good advice for us all?
As we watched my two daughters dancing their version of the Charleston after dinner, it made me smile seeing them totally in their element.
Here’s the key takeaway
When was the last time you questioned whether you are fully using your natural skills and talents. The things you love doing. Even if its just for 5 minutes a day, finding that thing that lights you up.
This made me smile…Sweet Dreams ..(are made of these)
It’s almost as though Annie Lennox wrote these lyrics for us..
“Sweet dreams are made of these…I travel the world and the seven seas”
Learning Emotional Resilience
Joe de Sena, Founder of spartan.com interviewed Caspar for his podcast which went live this week and has already been watched 40,000 times on YouTube.
Here’s what Joe said…
Would you leave everything to sail the world? Caspar Craven did...twice! In this week's podcast, we discuss how sailing the high seas taught Caspar and his family emotional resilience and how you can learn it too.
Be a better leader
Why do you do it?
Leadership tip of the week - it’s all about finding personal purpose and why its important to help your team find their personal purpose.
Thought for the day
“We thrive when we gaze deeply into the future ...so we can continue to invent in behalf of customers before they ask”
