Here’s an invite from Marshall Goldsmith for an upcoming (and free) teleforum on leadership.  I’ve participated in forums such as this in the past and they are absolutely worth the time. I really try not to miss these when they’re offered.


Marshall Goldsmith and Patricia Wheeler invite you to a Thought Leader Teleforum on Thursday, September 23rd at 1 PM Eastern time.

Please join us for a Thought Leader TeleForum on Thursday September 23rd on “The Truth About Leadership: The No-Fads, Heart-of-the-Matter, Facts You Need to Know” with Jim Kouzes and Patricia Wheeler.

In these turbulent times, when the very foundations of organizations and societies are being shaken, leaders need to move beyond the pessimistic predictions, the trendy fads, and the simplistic solutions. They need to turn to what’s real and what’s proven, to understand what the evidence tells us about how exemplary leaders get extraordinary things done.

Join us as Patricia and Jim discuss ten fundamental truths about leadership that drive successful leadership in our current marketplace.

This 60-minute Teleforum will cover the following points, plus field your specific questions:

1. What are the must-know differences about the CONTEXT of leadership today?

2. What are the must-know differences about the CONTENT of leadership today?

3. What truths of leadership that successful leaders should embrace?

If you are NOT following Inc Magazine on Twitter (@IncMagazine) please do yourself a favor and do so toot sweet.  Their Tweets are awesome and soooo useful in ways you really don’t realize until you read some of the articles they point you to and then you say, hey wow, I can use that.

Here are a few recent links that I thought were uniquely useful: 

Confidentiality Agreement for Employees   (Note:  view it for free, but buy it for $19 US)

Five Things You Can Learn From Your Receptionist   (I can think of more than 5 but its a start!)

How to Fill a Job Nobody Wants   (Are there actual jobs that nobody wants these days?)

Three Things to Never Say on Twitter  (So simple really, but think of your younger staff members – grads etc – this wouldn’t hurt as a reminder when discussing the value of a person brand.)

What are some constructive ways to give negative feedback    (I really like some of the reader comments posted to this question on their Ask Inc. feature.  Managers can always use a fresh perspective and fresh language on how to do stuff they would rather avoid!)

Oooh and a quick shout out to Business Week for this article:  Workers of the World Unite      It highlights how various companies are investing big dollars on collective intelligence tools that allow them to tap their employees to help solve corporate challenges.  Sooo interesting to dweebs like me.

Joanie  (Twitterable on @joanierobi)

This newbie blogger is finding some great advice on Penelope Trunk’s blog – The Brazen Careerist.   Here you go, and thanks Penelope!

Honestly I feel like I’m so late to the party but I’m having so much fun.
