Community update – 05/08/10
“Things that Tick Leaders Off” received more comments than any LF blog. If you didn’t read it, check it out. Some comments are serious. Some made me laugh out loud. I didn’t reply to any comments but I read them all and continue to read new ones as they come in.
I’m delighted to participate with the growing LF community where most days someone new leaves their first comment. Additionally, LF is adding new email subscribers every day.
Scott Eblin pointed out one of the best leadership articles I’ve read in ages,“Solitude and Leadership” By William Deresiewicz. It’s a speech at West Point. It’s a great read.
The LF blog “Influence Over a Cup of Coffee” is soon to be published. More on that later.
Mother’s Day is May 9th in the USA. Happy Mother’s Day to all the mom’s and mommy bloggers who read and participate in the LF conversation. If you’re a mom in a country that celebrates Mother’s Day on a different date, Happy Mother’s Day to you too.
Mothers are leaders. My wife and the mother of our children suggests that selflessness is a key quality of successful leader-mothers. Everyday great leaders make gritty choices to selflessly serve others. There’s no glamour and little glory in that choice. However, it’s a choice that fuels and directs our future.
