If you use Google Calendar, until recently you would have had to use multiple calendars to colour-code your events for easy organization.  Now, Google’s rolling out a new feature that lets you colour code individual events, instead of just entire calendars. That way, you can keep events in a specific category, but draw more attention to them with a specific colour.  Just click the box to the left of the title in an event and choose the colour for that event.  If it’s a recurring event, you can change all occurrences or just that one occurrence.  The feature seems to be rolling out gradually, so if you don’t have it yet, check back periodically and see if it shows up, for more info check out Google Calendar Help

  1. Have been musing this and decided it is impossible to answer as no one quality will do it. I would say humility is an absolute key but that needs be in the context of other skills, self awareness and abilities. I’d also say self awareness and the ability to listen, as well as being able to live and communicate vision.

    eeek, I’m on the verge of waffling. These are the key attributes that Alistair Campbell recently listed. There is some wisdom therein:

    Clarity of objective and strategy. Only then go tactical.

    The best team leaders are the best team players



    Staying calm in a crisis. Listen but lead, not listen and lead

    Patience. Take your time if you have to.

    Set the media agenda. Don’t let them set it for you.

    Get your head above the parapet when the s***t’s flying

    Encourage enterprise and ideas at all levels of your organisation in a non-blame culture.
