I just went over the one year mark with this blog. It's not exactly the most popular address on the web and I have not become any kind of leadership guru...but I am enjoying the conversation.
A special thanks to my friend Steve Harper (aka The Ripple Man) for introducing me to this format and to all of you who either value my opinion or like watching the trainwreck that is my leadership philosophy! I appreciate the opportunity to learn from some of your comments and emails and know that I improve my leadership with each new post.
In this first year, my most popular topics were learning from failure, mission execution, and morning huddles. It certainly tells me that the issues that I write about and that I am working on in my own profession resonate with others -- around the world. It also affirms my belief that military leadership lessons are applicable in many other settings.
Please pass along this address to your friends. We learn from each other and the more readers for Leader Business -- the better. If you haven't already done so, sign up for LB as an email or RSS Feed.
Most importantly, thanks to you who stop by these pages. I am humbled by those who share in my belief that leadership is a work in progress. Some write about it...others read about it. Together in our application of these lessons, we are sharpening each other. I'm looking forward to what another year of Leader Business will bring. Hooah!
