Closing Out March – Could You Help Me With April?

Hey All,

PodCamp:Nashville was a smashing success. As a member of the planning crew, I couldn’t be happier with the way things went… Well, except for lunch. We had a great turnout for my session on overcoming creative resistance. I really hope some folks were encouraged to overcome their own resistance and put their ideas to work!

I also just released an eBook, titled Just Create It: Overcoming the Resistance.

Grab your copy today. It’s absolutely free.

So What’s Next?

This is going to be a hectic week for me:

I’m sitting on a panel at the Nashville Business Journals Crash Course on Social Media on Wednesday, followed by a quick drive down to Atlanta for ReTech:South and RE:FooCamp.

Long story short, things will be a little quiet around here (sort of.)

I Need Your Input

As I galavant around the Southeast, I’m going to be working on next month’s content for the blog. I’m really looking forward to writing a series on developing personal leadership skills for life and business. That’s where I need your help.

Please cruise on down to the comment section and answer one or more of these questions for me:

  1. Are you in an official position of leadership? (business, non-profit, volunteer,church)
  2. Which leadership skills do you feel are your strongest?
  3. Which leadership skills do you feel are your weakest?
  4. If you could learn one thing about leadership today, what would it be?
  5. Do you think leadership skills are important? Why or why not?

    Hey Kenny, I would love to see your thoughts about how to be “salt and light” in the context of business, marketing and current social media communication. What messages do you communicate ? What subjects or topics do you avoid? How personal or private should you be in your blog about these things?

      Thank you so much for the comment, Rob. I’m actually getting ready to write a whole series on that very topic within the next couple of months. I’ve got a few eBooks and series of posts I’ve got to get through first, but I will definitely be taking a look at that. Thanks again!

    Hey Kenny, here’s my input:
    1. I started as a volunteer in Youth Ministry, then became a paid youth leader. At the moment, I have no official leadership position because we just moved to another country and haven’t found a church here yet and I don’t have a paid job (I’m a writer and I run three blogs)
    2. Management, organization, planning, decision making, time management. Basically anything that’s structured.
    3. Motivating people, dealing with problems in other leader’s lives, stuff like that. More on the personal and relational level I guess.
    4. How to become more of a leader of leaders, rise to the next level
    5. I think leadership skills are extremely important and every leader should never stop learning in this area. You never know enough as a leader, there’s always more to learn…
    Looking forward to your posts!

      Rachel, thank you so much for the thoughtful replies. You touched on some very important struggles in there and I look forward to addressing them over the next month or so. Thank you for reading and I’ll look forward to interacting with you more in the coming weeks!
