31 Days of “Oozing” Leadership Wisdom


Tomorrow is the launch of what is bound to be an amazing 31 days of incredible oozing content on the topic of leadership. Leadership expert and all around cool guy Todd Nielsen is kicking off his 2nd Annual International Leadership Blogathon. As Todd says,

“For 31 days we will read amazing stories, unparalleled experiences, and leadership wisdom oozing from every crevice of the Internet.”

Todd has managed to secure a total of 41 writers for the blogathon and each day a new writer will be featured. But Todd decided to kick it up a notch and feature 4 writers each weekend.  (Hence 41 even though there are 31 days in the month! And by the way there are 5 weekends in March!) Bookmark Todd’s site and be prepared for some incredible ooze!

Todd’s 1st Annual Leadership Blogathon was a huge success last year AND was the inspiration for my own 30x30x30 Personal Branding Blogathon on my blog last June. Actually, Todd kicked off my own blogathon with a post of his own that has gone viral – Screw “Dents”… I’m Aiming for an Immense Gaping Hole.

I am honored to be part of Todd’s blogathon this time around. Stay tuned for my post on March 25th. Here is a sneak preview of my ooze:

10 Steps to Lead with Your Personal Brand, not Your Title!

Guess what CEO, COO, CFO, CIO, CMO? At the end of the day, that title of yours really means nothing. CxOs are a dime a dozen and beyond the initial ‘wow factor’ that you might receive by telling someone you are Chief ‘Something’ Officer, that is where it ends. That fancy title actually ‘commodifies’ you even at the executive level, and people simply do not get excited about commodities!
