Top 10 Inspirational Leadership Blogs

Leadership Blogs

Google ‘leadership blog’ and the search results in about 333 million hits. If you are an aspiring leader or if you are like me and you like to keep up with readings on inspirational leadership, it can be difficult to know which blog to follow.

Fortunately for us, ReadyToManage put together a comprehensive list of Top 50 Leadership Blogs of 2014. This list includes Alexa ranking, a short summary and a link to the blog owners’ twitter handle is also provided.

Here are 10 of my personal favourite that I’ve compiled, some of which are not in ReadyToManage’s list:

1. Harvard Business Review @HarvardBiz

Although the Harvard Business Review is technically an online magazine, it provides readers with smart management and leadership insights and best practices to lead themselves and their organizations more effectively.

2. Leading Blog by Michael McKinney, Leadership Now @LeadershipNow

Michael provides a broad view on leadership and is not afraid to challenge one’s thinking. I especially like his compilation of leadership books.

Lolly provides heartfelt messages in her blog built on integrity, is inspirational and easy to digest.
