From the Independent Business Blogs: 8/4/21

  |   Leadership Reading Print Friendly and PDF

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 Susan Mazza, Scott Eblin, Steve Keating, Kate Nasser, and Linda Fisher Thornton.

From Susan Mazza: Creating Mental Space to Listen in an Age of Attention Deficit

“This time in history has been referred to as the attention deficit age. We are short changing ourselves compromising necessary mental space.”

From Scott Eblin: What’s Better for You? Peer Coaching or Mentoring

“In this post, I’m going to summarize the difference between peer coaching and mentoring, the best uses of each and help you figure out which choice is better for you right now.”

From Steve Keating: Successful People Have One Thing in Common

“It’s impossible to finish anything that you don’t start. That’s the one thing for certain that all people who have accomplished something have in common…they started.”

From Kate Nasser: Leadership Uncertainty: How to See Truth About Employee People Skills

“This story and the leader’s reaction is a short one but extremely common. Many leaders waffle over addressing employees’ poor people skills. Don’t get trapped. Overcome your uncertainty with these steps.”

From Linda Fisher Thornton: Navigating Paradox: Shift Your Perspective

“Understanding paradox and how two things that appear to be opposites can both be true helps us understand the trickier facets of ethics. When we reach what seems like a contradiction, we have reached a signal that we need to broaden our thinking until we understand how multiple perspectives can all be true.”

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.
