A single conversation across the table with a wise man is better than ten years mere study of books.
Thanks to the internet, we can start each morning with conversations from some of the wisest men and women out there.
Here are sites that add to my conversation:
Ron Edmondson- Thoughts on Leadership, Church and Culture - this blog talks to Christian leaders. I love Ron's honest and forthright approach to life and leadership.
Great Leadership - This is a great blog for leaders. Honest. A bit bland on design, but the content is rich.
Leadership Freak - I am always surprised - I click on a great title, and land again on Leadership Freak. Dan Rockwell does a great job of adding value.
Lead Change Group - A great variety of articles - this is a compilation website, having lots of bloggers to add content.
Leadership Digital - If you are short on time, this is the best one-stop resource for the latest in leadership development. Tony compiles top leadership resources every day, delivering a magazine-style website. (And he includes Deep Imprints on his list!)
Mary DeMuth - Mary focuses on the spiritual, but Christian leaders flock to her site because she is real and honest.
Linked 2 Leadership - This is another compilation website that I've enjoyed contributing to. The articles are engaging, and like other compilation websites, full of fresh perspective.
Eblin Group - I really enjoy this website. The blog speaks to leaders who engage directly with people. You will find lots of tools to help you be better at engaging and influencing people.
Kate Nasser - The People-Skills Coach - I LOVE this blog. Kate teaches me every time I land on her pages.
Strategic Monk - Greg Richardson has a great blog, and (it looks like) a thriving business. Greg will help you dig deep while you strengthen your leadership skills. (But bring your bifocals, the font is really small.)
For a breath of fresh air, I love spending a few moments each week with Todd Rhoades.
Margaret Feinberg - Margaret is respected by Christian authors and readers across the nation. She has an approach that is kind of postmodern in her ability to hit truth while telling a story.
Center for Creative Leadership - More than their blog, you will enjoy this site. The Center for Creative Leadership does onsite training, but they also have a plethora of white papers to help you get a new perspective on leadership and leadership development.
Steve Farber - I love Steve Farber's books. His site is a new adventure for me, but what a treasure trove!
Any list of top leadership blogs will not be complete without the best. Michael Hyatt shares his experience as a publisher, writer and leader to enhance your education across the leadership field.
