Knowing about and understanding our Five Basic Needs as described by Dr William Glasser will help us to cope in this pandemic. It will help us to make choices that will keep us calm and significantly reduce unhealthy fear and stress. Fulfilling our five basic needs helps us to stay mentally healthy and enjoying life. Interestingly, our basic needs are of little interest unless they are threatened. And right now, for many our basic needs are being threatened! For some, all of the five basic needs are being threatened.
People often ask the question “What is Leadership?
In my view Dolly Pardon’s words sum up leadership perfectly. “If your actions create a legacy that inspires others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, then, you are an excellent leader. It would be fair to suggest that in today’s world an organisation or business’s greatest asset is its people, which throws the spotlight on quality leadership.
The theme for International Women's Day on the 8th March 2020 was “I am Generation Equality: Realizing women's rights”. Achieving this outcome requires women to support each other and in the words of G.D. Anderson, 2013. “Feminism isn’t about making women stronger. Women are already strong. It’s about changing the way the world perceives that strength. These are powerful words to contemplate every day and not just on International Women’s Day 2020.
