Tying up loose ends...
As December has crept upon us already, I am busy - I am sure like many of you – tying up loose ends before the end of the year. This has involved a meeting with the chair of the trustees for a charity I have been carrying out an audit on, training two groups who work in housing associations on first-aid so they can support work colleagues and tenants in an emergency, working with groups of parents on keeping the cost of Christmas under control and of course ongoing management supervision and training.
Balancing this with my volunteer role as lead volunteer for safeguarding for Girlguiding can be quite challenging at times, but as I reflect for this blog I realise that all these varied groups of people have one thing in common.
They all want to make a difference. Whether I am working with a new Brownie leader who wants to know what the girl guiding policies are if she is worried about a young member, someone maintaining the grounds in sheltered housing who wants to be able to look after somebody who might be taken ill, or trustees of charities,. All these groups want to make a difference to those they work with.
As I drove across the M62 on a very dark and cold morning very early yesterday, I reflected that that is what gives me my drive to keep going that I work with so many great people who want to make that difference.
If you want to use 2020 to make a difference to the people you work with and I can help with any of my training or consultancy office offer, please do get in touch.
I am fairly booked up till the middle of January but taking bookings from then!
