I recently visited with a CEO that read one of the articles in this blog for the first time and realized how disconnected he’d been from a big project in his organization. …That realization caused him to immediately engage with his team.
Then I visited with a friend that is a stay-at-home grandmother. She said she wasn’t sure if leadership articles would be of value to her now that she is no longer working outside of the home. (Even though she is a leader in her home and does a lot of volunteer work!) …Then she went on to share her appreciation for the way the learning’s in these posts often challenge her thinking and apply to her life.

So today’s post is for anyone who wants to keep growing and learning and for anyone who is not sure how leadership lessons apply to them.
Below are links to several resources…
- Check out what Erin Schreyer did with her children one summer in this blog series.

From real people, in different places and seasons:
If you are looking for a speaker… I was recently honored to be included on a list of 100 Great Leadership Speakers for your next Conference by Inc.com. And yes – I’d love to serve you!
At the same time I have to confess that I’d be thrilled to sit in the audience and hear any of the people on this list! I’ve admired and learned from many of these leaders for years, co-authored books with several of them, and follow the rest of them.
No matter what season you are in,
your knowledge and skills are still needed.
