Last week, I shared 10 leadership learnings from social media on SmartBlog on Leadership. Not the main fare for all of my followers, but if you’re curious. Here’s a start and a link.
Leadership lessons from the online world extend beyond the content. Learn as much from watching what bloggers do, as what they say.
- Say what matters – In social media, people say what they mean. Be as brave in your leadership as you are in your tweeting. Show up a little messy. Real attracts more than conformance. Attract followers by showing up real.
- Build your own tribe – Social media leaders know they don’t need a title to be a leader. Some don’t even use their real name. In your daily leadership, lead from your passion. Start something you care about and see who shows up.Lead from where you are.
- Take risks – Try new styles, new ways of leading. Meet new people. Twitter users move from tweets to phone calls to friendships. Try new ways of connecting in your leadership.Try new approaches.
