A couple of blog posts caught my eye recently that I wanted to share related to leadership--how to become a leader, what to do, and what not to do.
Learn leadership by choosing to lead by T.J. Sullivan, co-founder of CAMPUSSPEAK. T.J. is an amazing speaker, and his work inspires students to be better leaders every day. I particularly love his advice to "Keep trying, keep failing, and keep learning"--a very agile sentiment.
Egocentric Leadership by Jurgen Appelo, agile author, speaker, and trainer. While I do enjoying reading business/management books, I'll admit that they often suffer from what Jurgen calls Management 2.0. Drucker's words about "knowledge workers" is a nice touch here.
Avoiding the Mistakes All Leaders Make by David Grossman, a guest post on Dan McCarthy's blog. Hint: the mistakes are related to your organization's strategic plan.
How Telling Your Story Can Make You a Better Leader by Henna Inam. Unlike my last post, this is related to the stories you tell about yourself to lead with authority.
