What are your sources for leadership information, perspective, and knowledge?
Being informed can make you a stronger leader. My hope is that this blog will become one of your sources for understanding the roles and functions of strength, caring, and energy management in leadership. It is important that you find the sources that are most helpful to you.
If you have never explored the world of blogs I encourage you to click on some of the blogs listed on the right hand side of this page. Blogs, short for web logs, provide a direct link to the thoughts and perspectives of a specific blogger or group of bloggers. Because there are millions of blogs it is very important to separate the wheat from the chaff. Once I find a good blog I tend to check the blogs listed on that blog for other good sources of leadership information.
If you become a regular blog reader it is important to find a “reader” that will collect your blogs and let you know when a new one is published. I use Bloglines but there are a number of free readers that make it so much easier to read and track the blogs of interest to you.
By the way, have you thought about creating a blog to share your perspective and experience. Writing your thoughts is a great way to clarify your own thinking and share your ideas with others who may benefit from your perspective. A blog is very easy to set up and this one on Blogspot, a Google-owned company, is free (Yes, I am from Winnipeg and we do like bargains in Winnipeg). If you want to start a blogspot blog click on the “get your own blog” button at the top of the page.
If you are new to blogs as a source of information or you want to begin a blog you are certainly welcome to contact me and I will freely offer whatever help I can to get you going with this. It is a small way to repay the debt of the free help that other bloggers have given me to help me navigate through what seems like a mess of information to an efficient connection to a highly customized and individual stream of knowledge and thoughts that enrich and enliven my understanding and practice of leadership.
