From the Independent Business Blogs: 10/12/22 post image

Independent business blogs are blogs that aren’t supported by an organization like a magazine, newspaper, company, or business school. Those people provide lots of great content, but they don’t need any additional exposure. In this post, every week, I bring you posts of quality from excellent bloggers that don’t get as much publicity.

This week, I’m pointing you to leadership posts by Kristen Hendrix, Kevin Eikenberry, Kate Nasser, Lolly Daskal, and Dan Rockwell.

From Kristen Hendrix: How hyper-honesty took me on a journey from truth to toxic

“When we are hyper-focused honesty, we are limited by what we perceive to be the truth. We leave no room for an alternate view. It’s possible that what we see is constrained, and someone else’s perspective could help adjust or expand our own.”

From Kevin Eikenberry: The Folly of Worry

“Worry. Most of us do it. Some of us do it… a lot. For such a common practice, there is so little real benefit we can gain from it. Whether you worry as an individual, a professional, or perhaps especially as a leader, the benefits are sketchy at best.”

From Kate Nasser: Leaders, What Messages Block Emotional Intelligence?

“Can the messages you want to send to others block emotional intelligence? They sure can. They block your emotional intelligence as you think of these messages. Yet you may not be aware that it is happening. So use this list as a starting point to increase your self-awareness and preserve your emotional intelligence.”

From Lolly Daskal: The Best Way To Break A Bad Leadership Habit Quickly And Permanently

“Most of us in leadership have at least one bad professional habit. Maybe you check your messages constantly. Or you might be known for being 10 minutes late to every meeting. Maybe you work through every weekend, hold negative thoughts, or mix too much personal business into the workday. Whatever your bad habit, putting an end to it will greatly improve your life and your leadership.”

From Dan Rockwell: 7 Simple Steps that Accelerate Growth

“Leaders who aren’t growing are failing. You were born with potential, but reaching potential is up to you. Constant improvement is first about you”

How I Select Posts for this Midweek Review

The five posts I select to share in my Midweek Review of the Independent Business Blogs are picked from a regular review of about sixty blogs I check daily and an additional twenty-five or so that I check occasionally. Here’s how I select the posts you see in this review.

They must be published within the previous week.

They must support the purpose of the blog: to help leaders at all levels do a better job and lead a better life.

They must be from an independent business blog.

As a general rule, I only select posts that stand on their own, no selections from a series.

Also as a general rule, I do not select posts that are either a book review or a book report.

I reserve the right to make exceptions to the above.

Here, on Three Star Leadership, I post things that will help a boss at any level do a better job and live a better life. And, at my blog for part-time business book authors, I share tools and insights to help you write and publish a book you’ll be proud of.

The 347 tips in my ebook can help you Become a Better Boss One Tip at a Time.
