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 Suzi McAlpine, Kate Nasser, LaRae Quy, Steve Keating, and Ken Downer.
“My interview for the TVNZ Sunday programme with Jehan Casinader is one of those experiences I’ll look back on and say, ‘Yeah. That was a good move.’ It’s been brilliant for book sales, business, and providing a platform for me to bang on about Beyond Burnout. But what you don’t know is that I almost pulled out. Being interviewed for a top rating television programme on a subject you’ve just written a book about can mess with your head.”
“Most leaders want limitless leadership success yet assume that it’s almost impossible. Well I challenge that assumption because I see specifically how leaders limit their own success. In fact, many people make the very same mistake and limit their own lives. They are comfortable with what they know and so they don’t grow.”
“A year that ushers in a global pandemic brings a truly important question to the forefront: Yes, we are constantly moving, but where are we going? It turns out that the great unveiling is really about us—the person we’ve been, and more importantly, the person we can still become.”
“Authentic Leaders invest time daily to make certain that the people they lead know they matter. People who are fortunate enough to be led by an Authentic Leader never have to wonder if they are making a difference. Authentic Leaders communicate with specificity and frequency how each of their people make a difference.”
“Was it a mission doomed to fail? We’ll never know, but we came close to launching a team and losing them in a trackless wilderness. Here’s what happened, and how to keep your own team from getting lost in the jungle.”
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.
