Do the right things right. Rise each time you fall.
These are the mantras for this blog exploring two topics each interrelated by their common thread of ‘Risk’.
Leadership and Management – Leaders optimise upside opportunity. Managers minimise downside risk. Both together are needed in appropriate balance for maximum return.
Turning Adversity to Advantage – Embracing failure provides potent opportunities for lessons, growth and serendipity.
I have recently added two further sub-topics as categories which stem from the subjects above
Black Boxes – Embracing the failure of understanding that complexity brings.
Dream Bubbles – Embracing the failures of dreams, aspirations and expectation.

We are creating an innovative online community around the topic of Leadership and Management (similar to http://www.socialmediainformer.com and http://www.frugalfocus.com, but around L&M), and we would like to invite you to include your blog in this new site. We already have many great bloggers on board, including those from Harvard Business Review, Leadership Now, Michael Lee Stallard, and Weekly Leader, among others – and we would love for you to join also.
The site will aggregate content from the best leadership/management bloggers on the internet (similar to but more efficient than http://www.alltop.com), and make it easy for readers to browse all this content by keywords. It will only show links to the posts of participating bloggers, not the content itself (so we will create referral traffic for you, as opposed to taking it away). We have around a dozen sites around different topics running already, and they have all proven to be very beneficial to the participating bloggers (as they get new readers and social proof by being displayed next to a range of other great sources).
Participation is simple (and free) – we ask that you add into your sidebar a small widget that helps promote the site and collects some social signal data to identify your best content, and we also ask that you announce your participation once things are set up. This way, more people will be able to find the site, and more people will eventually click through to your blog as a result of that.
Please let me know if you’d like to be a part of this endeavor (or if you have any questions), and I will set up your blog right away.
Have a great day,
I follow your discussions here about leadership strategies for organizational success, and I thought you and your readers might be interested in a new leadership resource. Change Leadership expert John Kotter’s Forbes column “Change Leadership” (http://blogs.forbes.com/johnkotter/2011/04/07/how-groupon-is-fending-off-complacency/) addresses key leadership topics and processes like the 8 Step Process for organizational success across any industry. John’s latest post, “How Groupon is Fending Off Complacency,” appeared last Thursday and discusses the important strategies Groupon uses to stay competitive.
We hope you’ll keep Change Leadership at hand as a source of fresh commentary on relevant and specific strategies for change. We welcome your feedback and thoughts on the blog – John is always interested in topics that readers find most valuable.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at this address or call me at (212) 584-5477.
Thanks & Best,
