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 posts by Kate Nasser, LaRae Quy, Art Petty, Suzi McAlpine, and Ken Downer.
“When you think of disrespectful behaviors you often come up with the same ones over and over. Yet that doesn’t lessen the impact of those behaviors on others. When people disrespect others it has tangible long-term effects.”
“Clearly, while most of us feel the inherent need to be resilient, very few of us know how to leverage it in a way that will make a difference in our life. … Here is how a strong mind can give you the resilience advantage:”
“Here’s a list of areas to focus on immediately. If you happen to be in top management, find ways to help everyone else challenge convention and bring the practices essential for organizational leveling up to life.”
“I get a front row seat to the extra pressure that leaders are currently under due to my role as a leadership coach. So this week, The Leader’s Digest is all about taking care of those who take care of others. You. What can you do when you’re leading yourself and your team through a sandstorm with the weight of the world on your shoulders?”
“When telling people what we need done, how do we strike the balance between being overly prescriptive, and recklessly lax? How can we be sure what we want in the beginning will be what we get at the end? A story I read recently involving a frozen lake, a pack of wolves, and a canoe full of beer can serve as a helpful guide in mastering the art of delegation.”
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.
