From the Independent Business Blogs: 4/6/22 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 LaRae Quy, Kate Nasser, Karin Hurt and David Dye, Linda Thornton, and Terri Klass.

From LaRae Quy: 10 Easy Backdoor Ways To Gain The Upper Hand In Conversations

“There are a few tricks of the trade I learned as an FBI agent for almost 25 years. And here are 10 that will help you to get people to lean toward your way of thinking when it matters most”

From Kate Nasser: Professional Jealousy: Prevent These Behaviors From Ruining You

“Still, recognizing when you feel jealous of colleagues and teammates is very important. It prevents you from acting jealous. It can prevent jealous behaviors from ruining you and your future. So take a deep breath and use this list to help you overcome any professional jealousy brewing inside you.”

From Karin Hurt and David Dye: Creating Clarity: Strategic Activities For Human Centered Leaders

“Without clear direction, it’s nearly impossible to motivate, accelerate, innovate or even celebrate.”

From Linda Fisher Thornton: The Danger of Us Versus Them

“Any time you draw a line that excludes, you’re leaving ethical territory. That’s a bold statement, but when someone draws a dividing line that intentionally excludes people or groups, it can lead to an ‘us versus them’ mentality. And from there, it’s a short and slippery slope to this and more:”

From Terri Klass: Five Leadership Jumps Into Spring

“As leaders move into this new season of budding and growth, they have the opportunity to make course corrections in their daily work routines and even generate adjustments to the annual goals they may have set back at the beginning of the year. For example, working in our hybrid environments may have changed our perspectives on our projects as we return to some days in our offices. Perhaps, we can form more collaborations and brainstorming sessions that are more organic. We don’t have to wait for a virtual meeting to see team members’ faces.”

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.
