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 Steve Keating, Tanveer Naseer, Julie Winkle Giulioni, Kevin Eikenberry, and Kristin Hendrix
“No matter if you can afford lavish gifts or you think you have to overspend your budget the best present you can give to those you care most about can’t be purchased. Even if you’re the craftiest person in your crafting club you can’t craft the present that will make the greatest impact on those you care about.”
“No one wants their employees to feel unhappy enough to quit their job and lose them as an asset to the company. Now more than ever, people need effective leaders. However, you can set yourself up for leadership success in 2022 by following these tips.”
“On the other hand, leaders who want their gifts to last all year understand that helping others grow is the gift that just keeps giving. They appreciate that development serves both the employee and the organization alike. And they know how to use its power to inspire engagement, tap discretionary effort, elevate skills and capabilities, enhance retention and drive bottom-line results.”
“Every time the calendar turns to a new year, people look forward. We look, but we can never see the future with great clarity. But after the last two years we have lived and led through, 2022 may look even murkier than usual. As we look forward, what must we be thinking about? And more importantly, what must we do? Here is my list of leadership imperatives for 2022.”
“Sometime in all the running around, please remember to put yourself first for a bit. Gift yourself some time to slow down and take a breath. To relax and experience whatever feelings you’re having instead of putting them away to focus on others.”
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.
