Blogs I Like: Dan Rockwell’s Leadership Freak

Mar 16, 2012 | Better Blogging

You can learn a lot from a good example. That’s why every week I highlight one great business blog. This week, it’s Dan Rockwell’s Leadership Freak.

There are a lot of business bloggers who post at least every business day. Most of them do super-short posts or mix in curated posts and pointers. Dan is one of very few bloggers who create a post every day, and I mean every day, not just every business day.

The motto for Dan’s blog is “Helping leaders reach higher in 300 words or less.” When I asked Dan who those “leaders” are, this is what he said.

“First are mid-levels in transition or hoping to move up. They’re looking to gain knowledge and insight. The second audience is leaders/business owners who realize leadership is important and want to grow. They love thinking about leadership. They may not be in transition but they value both learning and sharing what they know. The third audience is those who aren’t currently in leadership roles but want to be.”

So Dan writes 300 words for those people every day. Every day. That’s not all. He’s continued that pace even while recuperating from a severe auto accident.

Here are five of the most-viewed posts from Dan’s Leadership Freak blog. Read them with an eye toward what you can learn from Dan’s example.
