As I conclude my second year of blogging I wanted to reflect on the topics that interested you, my readers. In fact, many of my musings are inspired by you – so thanks!
Here are three of your favorite posts from 2015 and one of mine!
- The Best Jobs for All 16 Myers-Briggs Personality Types. This simple infographic is a wonderful reminder about the enduring truth of Socrates ancient advice – know thyself!
- Four things Star Wars Teaches Us About Cross-Cultural Leadership. This excellent post by one of my students will teach you The Chewie Principle, The Jar Jar Lesson, The Ewok Strategy and The Yoda Factor.
- 19,739 Definitions of Leadership (or Baking a Cake with One Ingredient). This article reminds us of the wonderful complexity of leadership – one which defies simplistic definitions!
- The WOW Factor: Increasing Employee Engagement. The Blue Jays Manager, John Gibbons, teaches us a valuable lesson about leading others.
As I look at the above list I realize that the most read content is re-purposed ideas from others. In fact, this is a wonderful lesson to close the year with! Most of my (and your) moments of brilliance are found in the DNA of others ideas! Here’s to many more re-purposed ideas in the year ahead!
Happy New Year!
