Hello and welcome to the August edition of our 2019 Monthly Leadership Tips: your 'once a month'  'bite-sized' chunks of practical leadership wisdom!

A special 'shout out' to the new Ag Vic Leadership Circles DiA group. It has been great to start the new program with you! We look forward to working with you over the next 6 months!

This month's 'Leadership Bite', How to make those personal changes stick explores the challenge of implementing behavioural changes in the workplace.  In some cases you might be working against long-term ingrained habits, operating in an extremely busy work environment or just find it difficult to be motivated to make these changes.  Utilising the three levers in this 'bite' can significantly improve your chances of successfully making any behavioural changes. Once again, this Leadership Bite uses the simple format of sharing one of our simple info-visuals,  then it provides a brief overview of the concept, why it is useful and how to apply it. This 'bite' can be saved and printed off as a PDF. Feel free to use it in team meetings, coaching sessions or workshops! We then also share two blogs that we think you'll find of value.

This month we share :
  • Leadership Bites - Helping make those personal changes stick
  • A link to a visual sharing the 10 habits Google thinks make a great boss, and
  • One of our Practical Leadership Actions - How do I create meaning and purpose?
Found something useful? Why not pay it forward and share a copy with your colleagues! Forward a copy of this email or send this link to join the DiA Monthly Leadership Tips list!

We also use the content we share each month, in the work we do in our consulting practice. Feel free to get in touch to find out more about anything in this newsletter or other blogs on our website.  Enjoy!

10 Habits of Great Leaders

Google have spent the last 10 years studying the habits of effective leaders. And they have come up with a way to know in less than 5 minutes if someone is a great leader!


They ask the people the leaders lead!

Interestingly, of all the questions, only one relates to skills that might be termed ‘hard skills’. All the others focus on ‘soft skills'.

How do I create meaning and purpose?

We have developed a series of practical leadership actions responsive to major themes that have emerged through our work with over 600 Discovery in Action® (Leading People) program participants.  We have observed six major themes that have consistently emerged as participants have grappled with the question: When do people perform at their best?  This is the sixth of those - How do I create meaning and purpose?
