Mary Holmes, director Development Solutions


Welcome to my blog. Here you will find short informal articles – quick, easy to read and full of ideas for personal and team development.  In addition, I will provide summaries of my book reviews and comments on books I am reading.

I already have a number of guest bloggers who have kindly agreed to contribute over the coming months – a mix of people with a wealth of experience in the corporate world, large public sector organisations and academics. So, a broad mix offering different perspectives on current topics.

In the coming weeks I am presenting to the Yorkshire Women in Management Group on ‘Growing Resilience’ and attending a coaching network event, all will provide scope for short comments about relevant topics. In addition, I am involved in a project on engaging leadership so will include some material from key reports on that – along with thoughts on that thorny question of ‘how’.

I am very keen to hear what you would like included – so let me know what topics are of interest and what will be useful to you and colleagues.

Best wishes, Mary
