Top Five Leadership Things I’ve Read This Week

  1. Tim Tebow The Quarterback  The Leader.  This sportswriter looks at leadership lessons we can all be learning right now if we watched Tim Tebow every Sunday and listened to his post-game interviews. Forget football. This guy is a leader.
  2. Twelve Leadership Lessons from the life of Abraham Lincoln. We can learn so much in the area of leadership by looking at great leaders, past and presnt.
  3. Ron Edmondson speaks to the need for leaders to lead authentically here.
  4. I love Seth Godin in that he always makes me think, even when I don’t agree with him. He pushed out some thoughts this week on social media and noise as they relate to leaders.  Social media can be a huge asset or a huge distraction from the very thing we’re called to do.
  5. Michael Hyatt writes a guest post over at the Lead Change Group. He speaks about Leaders and the Game of Life.  Why are we doing what we do and what kind of legacy will we leave?
