Feb 10th Newsletter

For this week’s newsletter, I was able to put together some thoughts on leadership in the blog and found a few great articles, too.  By the way, I was asked again last week for permission to share one of the articles in the newsletter.  Please feel free to use these articles without my permission!  I’m curating for you.

  The Top 5:

  1. From the blog, “The Best Leaders are Great Teachers” in HBR (Harvard Business Review) explores how leaders make their styles stick—that is, how they show their work.
  2. The last article in the blog was probably the best.  “If Strategy is So Important, Then Why Don’t We Make Time for It?” from HBR is an argument for carving out time for strategic thinking.
  3. In the Leadership section, “The Three Elements of Trust” from HBR is a great reflection on what’s needed to build and cement trust in an organization.
  4. In the Miscellany section, “Underrated” by Stephen Curry is worth reading and definitely worth sharing.
  5. The next article “Let Children Get Bored” from the New York Times hit close to home.  On these snowy days, the consistent refrain is “What are We Supposed to Do?”  The author argues that creativity emerges from blocks of unstructured time.

Don’t miss the article on the rising number of measles cases in the Pacific Northwest where some of the most permissive vaccination exemptions exist.
