5 for Leadership (2/2/12)

Here is a fresh five-I hope they prove effective in helping you lead to the best of your ability.

What I Learned From Steve Jobs-Since Apple is still merrily humming along after the death of it’s founder, I thought it was time to point you to this post from Guy Kawasaki that he wrote back in October.  Guy offers 12 insights from being in the room with Mr. Jobs.  Here is a little teaser towards the end of the post, ” . . . the starting point of changing the world is changing a few minds. This is the greatest lesson of all that I learned from Steve.”

2012’s Top Churches To Watch In America-This comes from the blog Church Relevance.  It is a fascinating look at some of the top churches in the U.S. ranked according to varying categories-such as: church growth, church innovation, church planting, church size, influencing other churches, and an all areas category.

On Leadership And Your Credibility Assets-I found this post in Linked 2 Leadership and was intrigued by the straight forward principles that Lori Gilmore shares concerning credibility.  It all gets back to integrity.

Book Review: Leadership is Dead-I thought it would be a good change of pace to offer a book review this time.  This was found on the Practice of Leadership blog and gives a good glimpse at this new book by Jeremie Kubicek.  The post claims that this book speaks to the heart of leadership and not just the head.  The reviewer also suggests that this is a very timely book-in light of all of the failed leadership we have seen in various parts of our culture in the last few years.  This is a helpful review and highlights some key principles.

Top 10 Servant Leadership Tweeters in 2011-If you are into Twitter-then this may be a good resource for you.  This brief post comes from Ben, the founder of the blog Modern Servant Leader.  This is a good blog and this post will give you some new leaders to follow on Twitter.

There are the five for this week-enjoy!
