I have book marked several great posts and want to share them with you. Consider it to be my personal periodic management post carnival. Enjoy!
Here are two links from pal Raj Setty (Life Beyond Code). The first challenges us to think differently about measurements - Metrics that Matter for 2010. The second post is super inspiring and is called, Lighting the Fire. I love the way Raj writes and thinks and I recommend his blog be in your aggregator.
Check out this post from Leo at Zen Habits called, The Definitive Guide to Sticking to Your New Year's Resolutions. This is a long post that offers many specific ways you can stay focused and in action (without stressing yourself into a straight jacket).
I book marked THREE posts from pal and fellow management thinker Wally Bock. Wally is so smart and he is delightfully sassy. The first post is called, What Your Team Members Want from You. The second post offers Wally's picks for business books from 2009. It is a great list and I feel honored that he included my Hip and Sage book among his faves. Thanks, Wally! The thirst post is called, Leadership Development: Big Company Programs and You, which is a review of the book, The Leadership Pipeline (not a new book, but one that offers solid info on big business leadership programs that you can learn from).
Dan over at Great Leadership offers a great roundup of the "best of" posts from the Leadership Development Carnival. Every post on this list is a great read.
Check out this post from Dwayne over at Genuine Curiosity called, If You Aren't in the Game, You'll Never Win. Dwayne links to a video that is very memorable.
Pal and fellow Canuck blogger David Zinger offers this post called, Good Management Matters. David shares several distilled down messages and suggestions for managers (including to read Management Craft, thanks very much!). Also from David is this great post called, 15 Kudos to Big Blue: IBM Offers Great Guidance in Social Media and Employee Engagement. Awesome post.
And last, but not least, check out this very provocative post from Paul over at Incentive Intelligence called Motivation and the Theory of Everything, which looks at the parallels between physics and motivation theory.
