There's a lot of new and a fair amount of new and improved coming soon at the Management Excellence blog. From the return of the Leadership Caffeine podcast to the new and improved Leadership Caffeine e-News, the Holiday Book List and the 2016 Coaching Calls Series, I'm excited to support your professional development efforts with all of these vehicles!
Imagine my surprise a few months ago when I noticed the blog counter here at Management Excellence ticking closer to the number 1,000. Here are at least 8 lessons I've learned while writing 1,000 blog posts on management and leadership:
Fresh off the heels of running my annual post on the need for leaders to eschew annual resolutions in favor of a continuous refresh, I’m contradicting myself just a bit with my “blogging resolutions” for the year. I like the idea of making the goals public. Nothing like visibility to promote accountability! Here are 5 resolutions I'm making for strengthening the Management Excellence blog in the upcoming year:
I most enjoy connecting with individuals who motivate, inspire, encourage, challenge and generally push us to think and act in ways that make us better as professionals and as human beings. Mom’s old advice of, picking the right crowd to hang around with, was spot on. I thought it might be nice to share a few thoughts beyond 140 characters from time to time on some remarkable individuals worth following. I look forward to continuing this process and helping us all live Mom's advice!
Note from Art: I'm taking a few days off over the holidays to focus on family and recharge my writing batteries. I plan on completing the second round edits of my next book, aptly titled, Leadership Caffeine, and I'm preparing a few other blogging surprises for the new year. However, if you happen to be hungry for stimulating content, here are a few suggestions to help you through this typically quiet week. Enjoy!
My guest post at Tanveer Naseer's blog, The Great and Perilous Leadership Journey Ahead, reflects my perspective on the rapidly and radically changing nature of leadership in our emerging environment. Perhaps my subhead says it best: "Welcome to the Leadership Blender."
After spending several years of my life dedicated to helping motivated professionals in a variety of fields (product managers, project managers, technical professionals, non-profit professionals, marketers, first-time leaders) discover and develop as leaders and senior contributors, I recognized that I needed to find a platform that enabled me to reach more people faster and more efficiently and affordably than the horribly inefficient and expensive traditional training model. And I did not want to sacrifice the personal contact.
OK, pardon my excitement, but I was thrilled to learn the other day that my blog, Management Excellence, was named to Alltop in the Leadership category! In case you are not familiar with Alltop, it is is a collection of “the latest stories from the best sites and blogs that cover a topic.” I am honored to be among the “best” in the leadership category on this great site!
