SEPTEMBER'S TRICKY PUZZLE NO 5 ON EGO AND LEADERSHIP

Our September Tricky Puzzle is attached and asks whether Ego is a friend or foe for leaders? A famous song claims that ego is not a dirty word, but it has a very mixed reputation when it comes to leadership. You can treasure hunt to find clues about how to handle ego in our Articles, Podcasts, Workshops and Blogs. A good place to start might be these articles "Leadership For Goodness Sake" and  "Being A Leader". Good luck!!

CITY OF THE FIRST LIGHT

Congratulations to Nedine Thatcher Swann and her Executive at Gisborne District Council in New Zealand for winning numerous national awards for your cultural awareness and community engagement efforts. I really enjoyed running a leadership and strategy Workshop for the team. I find it inspiring to assist impressive leaders and clients to kick more goals. Your museum depicting the arrival at your shores of the original Maori ancestors and then Captain Cook is a must see!
