The Top Three Blog Posts that Changed My Perception on Leadership

By Imran Azim

As leadership is one of my favorite topics, I never forget to bookmark such a blog or website which contains exceptional write ups on leadership. I’ve found hundreds of blog posts on leadership from some renowned leadership gurus. But I would like to specially mention the top three of the exceptional ones that changed my conventional perception on leadership. Let’s have a look on those:

From the Archives: How to Know You’re Out In Front by John Maxwell:

We always expect appreciation for anything we do whether it is in professional life or in personal life. On the contrary we have a great dislike for criticism and the person as well who criticizes us. In most of the cases, either we react negatively or try to avoid whenever we are confronted with a criticism.

But this excellent blog post has taught me to deal with criticism in a very effective way. According to John Maxwell, criticism is a part of leadership and hence we should not ignore it. Rather it can be a tool for our further progress. The following link will lead you to the original post:

As a regular reader of this excellent blog which contains some exceptional viewpoint on leadership and organizational culture change, I always wait for new posts from Arthur Carmazzi. This blog has changed my traditional perception on leadership. I always believed that it is the top level employees who should lead the process regarding organizational culture change. But I was wrong as Arthur Carmazzi emphasizes on developing leadership at every level and utilizing those key influencers to gain success. You can find the original post at the following link:

The Difference between Leadership, Management, and Supervision by Ken Blanchard:

When I started reading this write up, I thought that it would define the terms – Leadership, Management & Supervision. But it was something different as Blanchard didn’t try to differentiate these three terms. According to him all three are leadership roles. Moreover, he revealed three secrets of ‘The One Minute Manager’ and how it can lead us to success. You can find more at the following link:
