We’ve been busy this week – lots to do and wrap up before the end of the year (speaking of which, we’ve got a great “Leading in 2011″ feature coming soon!). What’s on your end of the year to-do list?
Hopefully you can take a moment to read our top 3 Twitter links of the past week. And, of course, we hope you can take time to rest, relax, and reflect these next two weeks.
Jim Kouzes, known perhaps for his work on The Leadership Challenge with co-author Barry Posner, stopped by Robert Thompson’s Thought Grenades show on BlogtalkRadio to talk about their newest book, “The Truth About Leadership.” “Focusing on the future sets a leader apart” – listen to this interview (and read the book) to find out why.
@ChipConley: Suggestions on creative brainstorming & how to tap into your inner genie; love “a shower is meditation for amateurs” – http://nyti.ms/gtch4Z
Coming from Chip Conley, we knew this would be a fantastic article. What we didn’t realize is how on-target this article is with our 2011 book releases! It mentions the importance of “framing the question” (bringing to mind Gail Fairhurst’s forthcoming “Power of Framing“); innovation and creativity (Josh Linkner’s “Disciplined Dreaming“); and even advertising and branding (David Aaker’s “Brand Relevance“).
We have to agree – listening is key. Great leadership quote from one of the top Leadership bloggers of the year, Dan Rockwell.
