Here is a new 5 for this second full week of the new year. There are posts on future challenges, wise and foolish leaders, fresh networking ideas, wisdom from Jonathan Edwards, and some strong perspectives on vision. Enjoy.
The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards “If there is one man who is more qualified than anyone else to speak on “resolutions,” that would be Jonathan Edwards. Heralded as America’s greatest theologian, I came across his amazing story on resolutions.” Paul Sohn provides some grounded principles for leadership learning from Jonathan Edwards.
Effective Networking: 6 Secrets Your Kids Know “The truth is most kids make friends more easily than grown-ups. We start being open to new connections and grow ourselves out of it. Kids can teach us a lot about networking. Try working a few of these approaches into your networking.” Karin Hurt gives us six practical principles towards this important endeavor.
On Leadership Challenges of the 21st Century “One of the basic and fundamental challenges facing any thought leader in the area of leadership and leadership development is to correctly read the landscape in which their influence will be played out in the coming years.” Shim Marom helps us look ahead in the areas of future leadership challenges, future leadership wisdom, leadership self development, and leadership horizons.
Distinguishing The Wise From The Foolish “The most talented fool in the world only brings misery and destruction. Business is more than numbers and results. Leaders go astray when they neglect character at the expense of abilities.” Dan Rockwell helps us make this important distinction in ourselves and others.
The Value of Vision Series This comes by way of Jesse Lyn Stoner. She shares Ken Blanchard’s six compelling issues surrounding a compelling vision for our nation. This is worth the read both for personal leadership development and for thinking different about America.
There are the 5 for this week.
