Below are 9 of the best websites on the web that can help you do just that…
1. Michael Hyatt’s Blog
Online leadership development company, Michael Hyatt and Company, certainly deserves its place on this ‘top 9’ list. Featured many tines in places such as The New York Times, CNN, Forbes, and Business Week, this co-author of the Wall Street Journal and author of other bestsellers knows his onions when it comes to success and leadership.
Nearly three quarter’s of a million people follow Hyatt’s blog, perhaps THE number 1 place on the Internet where you can get a ‘virtual mentor’ that actually does what he promises. Jam packed with inspirational, motivational articles, podcasts and resources that will help you become a better leader, there’s a multitude of free stuff to take advantage of. Sure, there’s paid products as well, but the free information given on a weekly basis is of incredibly high value. It gets 10/10 in our book…
2. Tony Robbins Blog
If you’ve not heard of Tony Robbins, then you need to. One of the true premier names when it comes to leadership and personal development, he’s probably best known for his live performances. But a lot of people don’t know that he’s also an avid blogger.
This guy is awesome – both on stage and in print. Any leader (or would be leader) worth his or her salt should take heed of Robbins – he’s not a global phenomenon for nothing. In addition to his blog, you can find all kinds of other great stuff on the website, including dates of his next live appearances, and even the opportunity to join his hallowed ‘platinum partnership’, if that’s where your aspirations lie…
3. Great Leadership by Dan
Dan McCarthy’s website, Great Leadership by Dan, is a testimony to the guy’s 20 years in the field of leadership and management development. In addition to his own expertise, he features a regular stream of articles by guest bloggers who are also top of the game in their particular area of business.
This eclectic mix makes for a quality and diverse cross section of opinions that offer true value to anyone looking to improve their leadership and management skills.
4. Wally Bock’s Three Star Leadership
New York born, Wally Bock’s Three Star Leadership is a super cool and super informative site that is so full of leadership information that you’ll need to put aside a bit of time to wade through it. But it will certainly be time well spent, because what’s included in there is pure gold.
Bock’s been named in the top 100 of Inc.’s leadership and management experts, and once you start reading, it won’t take you long to realize why.
5. Dan Pink
Think Pink – don’t sink (our words, not his), is a pretty awesome website by leadership, business strategy, and management talent author and blogger, Dan Pink. This is a HUGE website – and we’re not only referring to the amount of pages it has. Pink shares his own strategies, along with videos, interviews, podcasts, and articles from others in the leadership field.
If you’re only going to have one takeaway from this article, it’s that you absolutely have to sign up to Pink’s newsletter. It’s not only informative, it’s fun (and sometimes a little irreverent) too.
6. Lead Change Group
This fab website puts great leaders and great ideas in connection with each other. Truly global, this is one of the most socially shared leadership blogs on the planet, with more than 20,000 unique visitors – per month!
The whole idea of this global, virtual community is to allow people to showcase their ideas and to assist leaders in their personal growth. Members also have the opportunity to participate in webinars, virtual seminars, book launches, and other events.
7. Extreme Leadership
This is the blog of Steve Farber , one of the countries top motivational leadership speakers. In addition to the excellent selection of blog articles posted on a regular basis, there’s also various videos, information about workshops and training, details about Faber’s up and coming presentations, and a soon-to-be-added e-course designed specifically for improving leadership skills.
8. Aspire Collaborative Services
OK, a somewhat clunky name, but that aside, this website rocks! Offering ‘practical solutions for leaders to transform from good to great’, the company is run by experts in leadership from business and corporate backgrounds.
There’s a truly worthwhile blog, along with detailed information on all the leadership services that the company runs, along with the principles they go by.
You might not think of Dilbert.com being a leadership website. But what it actually does is give anti-leadership tips and advice through its humorous cartoons. This in itself provides some really great leadership ideas, simply by showing you how NOT to lead. Clever, don’t you think…? And provides the odd laugh along the way as well.
