Diverse leadership produces great results. That isn’t a slogan, experience tells me that’s true.
For instance, when I led an initiative to improve engagement with local educational, health and environmental opportunities it was brilliant to draw on the wisdom from project workers who weren’t all the same.
Tapping into the minds of people of different ages, faith backgrounds, sexualities, and social classes made a difference.
Having many voices in the conversation, offering different perspectives, kept the ideas flowing and the creative solutions coming.
The result? A successful set of outcomes, within a tight timeframe, which improved on previous results and achieved greater value for money.
Who could argue against better results?

Happiness Involves Doing What You Love With And For Others – Photo by RUN 4 FFWPU from Pexels
So, what was the highlight of your month? For me it was last weekend. In 48 hours I met several goals, including getting to see some friends, catching up with family and spending time on my own stuff. I am grateful that I was able to spend my time in this way.
Looking back at your month, how much time did you get to spend happily doing what you wanted?
Did you get to spend enough time seeing people you love and meeting your needs?
Or did work overwhelm everything?
Would you score yourself above 6 out of 10 on the happiness scale?
If we live to our mid 70s we will have spent more than 27,000 days on Earth! If we are too busy running from Point A to Point B to be happy in that time we are doing ourselves a disservice. So what conscious step will we need to take today, to make ourselves a little happier?
