Dan McCarthy, host of the blog Great Leadership is trying out something new. This month, he launched the Leadership Development Roundtable Challenge and I think it’s something you’ll want to check out.
This is how it works:
Once a month, a leadership blogger will host a “challenge” question that highlights a typical dilemma or challenge that leaders face. Then, a core group of leadership bloggers will provide a brief response to the challenge on the host’s site. Hosting of the challenge question will rotate amongst the six leadership bloggers listed below.
Now, here’s where it gets fun for you, the reader. You can vote on the blogger response you deem “best”. Yeah, I know, it’s totally subjective, but isn’t that what makes joining an online conversation so interesting? A week later, the blog host will publish the voting results.
The Leadership Development Roundtable Challenge features leadership bloggers Art Petty, Dan McCarthy, Mary Jo Asmus, Scott Eblin, Steve Roesler and yours truly. To keep it fresh, each month, we’ll invite a Guest Blogger as well. This month’s Guest Blogger is John Baldoni, author of Lead Your Boss: The Subtle Art of Managing Up and 8 other leadership books. John is also a contributing author to several notable online publications, including the Harvard Business Review blog.
The June challenge is: How fast should a newly hired manager (from outside the company) make changes to his or her team’s structure or business operations? Click the link to go to Great Leadership to see all seven answers and to vote.
