From the Independent Business Blogs: 3/9/22 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 posts by Sharlyn Lauby, David Dye, Lolly Daskal, Art Petty, and Ken Downer.

From Sharlyn Lauby: Dynamic Teams Create Organizational Agility

“One of the biggest business lessons we’ve learned in the past couple of years is that agility is beneficial for success. Agility is more than simply being flexible. Don’t get me wrong – flexibility is important. I like to think of flexibility in terms of being able to address last minute changes or adjustments. It might be a situation that we knew was within the realm of possibilities, but we just didn’t think it would happen or happen at this particular time.”

From David Dye: The Most Challenging Person for a Human-Centered Leader

“If you’re serious about becoming a more human-centered leader, it’s vital to master one specific relationship: the one with yourself.”

From Lolly Daskal: How To Overcome Your Fear And Become A Great Leader

“As a leadership and executive coach, I get to work with leaders around the world. Cultural differences emerge in many discussions, but when the topic of fear comes up people all over the world tend to react the same way: they become overwhelmed by the sense of uncertainty and the unknown. Part of my job involves coaching leaders in overcoming those feelings. Here are some of the suggestions I use:”

From Art Petty: When Challenging Conversations Go Unspoken—A Leader’s Nightmares

“Be very afraid of the conversations on the tough topics of performance, improvement, and innovation that aren’t taking place on your team or in your organization.”

From Ken Downer: Run of the (Tread) Mill – Finding Magic in the Mundane

“Most of life and leadership is not about flash and excitement. Success more often comes from doing things regularly and predictably, day after day. Those important but unglamorous tasks can seem about as exciting as running on a treadmill. Yet it doesn’t have to be that way. Here are six ways to find the magic in the mundane to make it easier to keep moving forward.”

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.
