Reading to Lead (1/18/13)

Need a gentle nudge or a sharp poke in the right direction?  Here are some great articles I have come across recently.

Cliff Jumping: John Saddington writes that if you are a leader, you are going to have to ask for help.

Jerry Seinfeld on How to write a Joke:  This video shows that “funny” takes work.

The Cost of Neutral: Seth Godin says that showing up can be a bad thing.

Climbing the Communication Stairway:  I work hard to be a good listener, but I know I regularly get stuck at levels 2 & 3.

The Busy Trap:  Tim Kreider writes,  “I recently wrote a friend to ask if he wanted to do something this week, and he answered that he didn’t have a lot of time but if something was going on to let him know and maybe he could ditch work for a few hours. I wanted to clarify that my question had not been a preliminary heads-up to some future invitation; this was the invitation.”

Where there is no guidance, a people falls, but in an abundance of counselors there is safety.  –Proverbs 11:14 (ESV)
