Guess Where I’m Going and WIN 1 of 5 Leadership Books!

Well it’s that time of year again and I’m off on holiday for a week with my lovely hubby!

Here’s the evidence of the ‘prepping’, as it were, in the airport lounge before departure…

Suzi McAlpine - The Leader's Digest

The Leader's Digest by Suzi McAlpine

In my excited haze it dawned on me that I wanted to do something fun for my loyal ‘bloggites’ and decided on a competition.

I am absolutely loving my latest ‘good read’ – Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work by Chip Heath and Dan Heath.

In Decisive, the bestselling authors of Made to Stick and Switch, give practical ideas on how to overcome our intrinsic behaviour and biases to make better decisions – in all areas of our lives. Of course, this is a highly valuable skill for leaders! If you’ve ever wondered how to improve your chances of making a good decision, this book is for you.

So this week I am giving away away 5 copies of Decisive: How to Make Better Choices in Life and Work by Chip Heath and Dan Heath.
