Book Club 11 PLQ - Chapter 5 & 6
Third in our Sisters' Bookclub series, we explored Chapters 5 Holistic Justice and 6 Pragmatic Decisiveness. Both areas are extremely topical within the current socio-political climate. The first of the two chapters explores justice in regards to race, gender, religion and conflict resolution. The second talks about the importance of making a decision based on an overall view of any given circumstance, including your team as part of a consultation process and the act of making the decision (a decision is better than no decision). Sound intriguing? Tune in to listen in on our discussion. Thanks for listening and we'll speak to you next time!

Book Club 11 PLQ - Chapter 3 & 4
Book Club 11 PLQ - Chapter 3 & 4
Fortnightly Sisters Bookclub podcast series hosted by Pass the Mic Sis for Muslim sisters, which takes place on Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm (GMT). This time we explored Chapters 3 Vision and 4 Courage of  'Muhammad (saw): 11 Leadership Qualities that Changed the  World' by Nabeel Al-Azami. The more you read this book it becomes second nature to spot these qualities in people around you and appreciate areas where you need to develop. Second in our Bookclub series we're still exploring ways to improve the quality of the sound recordings. The conversations take place over Skype and are recorded on the host's laptop. Please excuse the speaker vibrations that we've been unable to edit out of our guests' voices. We've identified what the issue is and will address it in the next podcast. We thank you for your patience and understanding!

Book Club 11 PLQ - Chapter 1 & 2
This is the first in our podcast series of fortnightly Sisters' Bookclubs with our Muslim sisters at Pass the Mic Sis, which take places on Wednesdays 6:30-7:30pm (GMT). The recording is raw and our first ever, so please excuse the stuttering and rawness. We read and talked about Chapters 1 Integrity and Chapter 2 Competence of  'Muhammad (saw): 11 Leadership Qualities that Changed the World' by Nabeel Al-Azami. It is an inspiring book with lots of learning points. Once you read a few chapters, you start spotting these qualities in people around you and/or wonder why certain people do not have these!
