|Thank you all for reading and sharing about leadership.
I am particularly thankful this year for having this great opportunity to share via my BLOG. I have had folks in 43 different countries who read and share these words that I have about leadership, servant-hood and the lessons I have gained from so many in my 57 years.
I wanted to share the Top 10 most read BLOG posts from this past year. (A link to each is embedded for your convenience.)
10) Leadership Adding to Others - Josh Greene adds value to all and he is still adding value to his family and those he serves in his community. I met Josh in 2004 and for just over five years he helped determine and support all that I was determined to do and be great as a member of my team.
9) Leadership From Volunteers - While Blake Walker and I admire the subtly of humor; I also think of Blake Walker as just that in his role as a volunteer. I am so grateful for Blake and those I mentioned earlier. They teach and lead and give and teach others to lead and give.
8) Leadership Lessons from John huges (and my Wife) - Our life has been all these moments of love, leadership and John Hughes movies.
7) Wally Vision and Leadership - As I've gotten older I've tried to look at things like that more and more with genuine gratitude - I can't think of a single conversation I've had with Wally since we met in 1983 that I have walked away from without a lesson - I try to be that for others as well.
6) Leadership and the Law of the Lid - There is always room for forgiveness and redemption. I learned that lesson with Brian Kelly. My first impressions of Brian were that he had a big heart and needed to share that with others.
5) Leadership and Lasting Impact - Kelly Cullen helped define who I am and for helping me figure out my “why.”
4) Leadership and Learning - Having someone who enjoys learning and applies that enjoyment to helping others learn is Megan Kelly'’s gift to me.
3) Leadership Lessons from the "Real Thing" - I am in debt to Bill Gagliardi for all the lessons and the one about faith has been the most enduring.
2) What Gift is This Person Giving Me? - John Maxwell says, “Whenever I see my staff, I put an imaginary “10” on the forehead of each individual. This helps me treat each person like a 10, a high performer who makes a difference to me and the organization. Inevitably, they respond as if they are a 10!
1) Thank A Teacher for a Pile of Leadership Lessons - I will leave the simple concept and moral of the story here. I thank Bill for the wonderful lesson and the value he helped me to see in myself as I have shoveled my way through these many years. I am forever always, “looking for the pony.”
