Today marks a pretty exciting day for the Turning Managers Into Leaders blog – it’s our fifth anniversary. Yup, exactly five years ago to the day, I started this leadership blog with a post that opened with Okay folks, I’ve entered the 21st century! Exactly 500 posts, 27 guest blogs, and several hundreds of conversations later, here we are!
So today’s blog post is a thank you and a celebration. Thank you to every single one of you for reading and participating in the discussions. Who knew that a little leadership blog project that I started back in 2009 would take off and soar? I certainly didn’t! My goal for the Turning Managers Into Leaders blog was simple – I wanted leaders such as you to get timely useful information that would be of value in your day-to-day leadership and workplace communication challenges.
But while I may be the spark that initiated the topics for discussion (which was often because of something one of you said anyway), the truth is that each of you is the fuel in the engine that kept the dialogues going. So not only do I want to thank you, but I want to celebrate all of you and your contributions. If you didn’t have a deeps-seated desire to travel the journey towards leadership excellence, then this blog would have stalled a long time ago, and become just another one of those broken-down dilapidated wrecks on the side of the social media highway.
Thank you for being such an integral part of this journey!
