Community Update – 04/10/10


Thank you to all Leadership Freak (LF) subscribers and readers who left comments this week. There are a growing number of regulars who freely share their wisdom, experience, and perspective. I appreciate you all. Furthermore, new participants pop up every day. Everyone’s comments add value to the LF community.

Thank you to Jim Leemann and Bud Brown who sent a pile of useful information and presentations on the topic of mission and vision. Your generosity overwhelms me. This week I’m completing preparations for the trip to Oregon. I’ll be sure to give credit where credit is due.


The first time I said the word twitter I smirked to let everyone listening know that I thought it was frivolous. I’m not smirking now. Twitter is a powerful tool for connecting with others who share your interests. Here’s an example of how it works.

Last Wednesday, I posted “Bottlenecks.” Early that morning, Wayne Miller asked an important question. “What do you do when the bottleneck is at the top of the department or organization?” I went to twitter.

I sent public tweets (sounds silly doesn’t it) and direct messages to several twitterpals letting them know about the question. As a result, along with all the regulars; leadership coaches, consultants, bloggers, and authors stopped into LF to add their perspective. Twitter is a powerful  tool for creating connections.


The picture on this post is of my bride of 34 plus years and I. We’re all dressed up for someone else’s wedding.

It’s just over three months since I started writing Leadership Freak. I didn’t image the response it would receive. Thank you to everyone who comments, subscribes, and tells others about LF. It’s overwhelming.

If you’d like, you can connect with me, Dan Rockwell, on Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn.


You have my deepest regards,

Leadership Freak
