From the Independent Business Blogs: 6/29/22 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 Steve Keating, Kate Nasser, Todd Ordal, Lolly Daskal, and Ed Batista.

From Steve Keating: A Vision and a Plan to Achieve It are Two Different Things

“Almost all people believe having goals is important. Many actually have written their goals down. Few however, have any kind of a formal plan for how, and when, they will achieve those goals. They can only hope it will somehow magically happen.”

From Kate Nasser: Modern Leadership Truths for Today’s Leaders

“Today’s leaders — both new and experienced — do well when they embrace these modern leadership truths. On the surface, these truths may seem obvious. Yet, when you think about the details, you realize just how committed you must be to lead well. Here are seven modern leadership truths to live and lead well. “

From Todd Ordal: What Are Your Fish Eating?

“I wish I had the insight of Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, or Henry Ford, but I don’t. You probably don’t either (and hopefully don’t have their personality!). Most successful CEOs have no more predictive power than you do. The only answers are to: (a) ask desired customers and coworkers what they want, (b) learn from others, or (c) experiment.”

From Lolly Daskal: Uncharted Waters: How to Navigate the Future of Leadership and Business

“Business always includes an element of unpredictability, and agility and flexibility are enduring requirements for successful leadership. But more than ever before we are operating in uncharted waters, and building long-term success in business and leadership means not just implementing new methods but creating a whole new mindset.”

From Ed Batista: The Smoke Detector Principle (Why We Overreact)

“This mismatch between our cognitive understanding of a situation–what we know–and our emotional response–how we feel–is a hallmark of human psychology. And like so many other confounding aspects of how our minds work, it benefits the species while impairing our individual experience. It’s a feature that acts like a bug.”

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.
