This is a must read.

Leadership Is Difficult, But It Doesn’t Have To Be Hard This post is from Tim Milburn, whom I have highlighted before. “It’s difficult to do what leaders need to do, but it doesn’t have to be hard to figure out who a leader needs to be.” Tim gives us 7 principles to figure this out.
Why We Need More Women Leaders This final post comes from the HBR blog. “Often overlooked is this basic reality: what the world needs is more leaders, of whatever gender or any other characteristic. We need more leaders at every level in every kind of organization — businesses, government, schools, neighborhood and professional associations, unions, religious entities, and charitable institutions.”
There are the 5 for this week. Lead well!
