My Favorite Leadership Blogs


None of us are perfect. But how often do you leave time to understand where you can get better at leadership? Time is precious. Time is not unlimited. Fortunately, there are ways to maximize your time and get a little better at leadership every day.

The following blogs help me understand leadership better and only take minutes a day. It’s the list that no one asked me for, but I insist that you check out my favorite blogs!

Michael Hyatt

I must thank Michael for turning me on to social media. His book, Platform, was a revelation. I read this book as part of my school assignment, but I didn’t know that he also shared a passion for leadership – Intentional Leadership as he calls it. He provides straightforward steps on how to intentionally lead people, and his blog is published daily. Like podcasts? He does them, too. He even gives away free e-books!

Dan Rockwell

A prolific blogger with strong takes on leadership, he dishes reality on leadership. His blogs are short and to the point. He gives authentic takes on how to handle difficult topics. It’s not fantasy advice; it’s reality advice. He responds to comments on his blog, and he will give you a jolt of confidence that you can get better at leading people. He’s a Leadership Freak!

John Maxwell

John has been blogging for about 7 years, and we are lucky to have his insight. As a successful business leader, he breaks down the basics for us weekly with real world insight at a level we can all understand.

Ken Blanchard

Author of the One Minute Manager, Ken’s blog is adept at simplifying leadership trials and travails and how you can succeed at it. His blog comes out bi-weekly.

Suzanne Lucas

Suzanne makes HR issues simple. She provides insight that helps new to seasoned managers. Always an interesting take on HR issues!

And if you’re in retail like me…

Beth Boyd

Beth is passionate about GREAT leadership in retail! She’s seen enough bad leadership that it doesn’t sit well with her. As such, her advice is aimed at those looking to be GREAT. Do check her blog out often as she usually writes two or more times per week.

Bob Phibbs

The Retail Doctor! His blogs are definitely aimed more at C-suite execs, but it is also great for those interested in retail strategy. Bob keeps my industry knowledge relevant!
