The main reason that you read blogs is to grow your capacity and knowledge in your profession; to feed your head. These blogs are one of your main courses. This is Part 3 of the Feed Your Head Series. Part 2 is about those blogs that whet your appetite. Part 1 is on finding and subscribing to blogs.
For me, the main category of blogs I read are on leadership development. and coaching. This is what I want to feed my head. You may have different topics. If you like this areas, let me share some of the top ones that I read.
Linked2Leadership. L2L is a group blog designed to support it’s readers in building their leadership so that you can build others. They have a great goal on 2013. “Imagine a “virtual year-long leadership development conference” where members and interested readers can come to read and participate in 12 related topics that we have selected for the 2013 season.”
Leadership Freak. Dan Rockwell is crazy about leadership development. His blog, Leadership Freak, reflects that. Right now he is using his Facebook page to take suggests about terms related to leadership. He’s up to “H.”
Brian Tracy’s blog. What can I say; it’s Brian Tracy’s blog. The blog is concise, helpful, and you will never leave without know what the core idea is.
Blanchard LeaderChat. See comment on Brian Tracy. Except call it the Blanchard Leaderchat. It’s a little more of the big picture ideas and a little less of the personal leadership development approach.
Great Leadership. Dan McCarthy is the Direct of Executive Development Programs at the University of New Hampshire. The blog title, Great Leadership, says it all. He covers the breadth of topics on leadership development. His insights on personal development will leave you asking why you haven’t done that before.
Try them out. The worst you could do is not subscribe. On the other hand, they may just change your life.
Part 4 is coming soon. Any meal would be boring if you ate the same thing. These are the other main course: coaching blogs.
