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 Anne Perschel, Kevin Eikenberry, Art Petty, Judy Sims, and Julie Winkle Giulioni.
“Coaching leaders through Covid19 requires being aware of our assumptions and mental models; quieting the mind and listening generously, more so than ever.”
“While there are other personal and professional lessons you might take from these times, I believe there are leadership lessons from COVID-19 available to every leader – if they recognize and apply them. Here are five things to learn now that will benefit you forever.”
“Sadly, too many teaming experiences feel a bit like those horrible group projects in college where one or two people did all the work, three or four argued constantly, and at least one decided to take a working holiday.”
“First of all, let’s get one thing straight. You’re not a terrible person.”
“As a huge portion of the workforce settles into a new ‘abnormal’, at least one thing is crystal clear: When we come out on the other side of this (and we will come out), we will need to be stronger, more resilient, and ready to perform at unparalleled levels. Because, let’s face it, by all indications, the demands are going to be excruciating.”
That’s it for this week’s selections from independent business blogs. If you liked this piece you may enjoy my curation posts on this blog. On Fridays you can wrap up your week with “Weekend Leadership Reading” consisting of choice articles on hot leadership topics culled from the business schools, the business press and major consulting firms.
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.
