Favourite Posts of 2013 That I Wrote & Published
No, not that kind … although it is Christmas Scotchalicious season.
I’m referring to a recent post where I highlighted many interesting articles and posts in 2013 that I read … and another post where I highlighted several long-form books I found to be quite intriguing.
This post turns the mirror toward my own writing in 2013.
The following are what I deem my most interesting posts (on this site — not published elsewhere or excerpts from my book Flat Army) in 2013.
There were no judges.
- The TED of all Leadership Management Conferences – A Review of the Drucker Forum 2013
- I had the fortune of participating in the Global Peter Drucker Forum in 2013 and this post takes you through some of the highlights — at least from my vantage point.
- After Five Years In My Role We’re Hiring My Replacement. Are You Interested?
- I thought it to be somewhat innovative to announce my new role and retirement from the old role at TELUS through my blog. After more than 6,000 views of the post, perhaps people out there felt the same?
- A Review of SAP Jam
- I’m a big fan of SAP Jam — and yes, for transparency purposes we implemented it at TELUS — so this post captures what I like about it … and what my friend Sameer Patel needs to do with it in the future.
- Is Facebook a Narcissistic Walled Garden?
- An open question really. The comments (totaling 18 at press time) were more entertaining perhaps than the post itself.
- Lessons in Leadership From Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis
- Need we say more? (oh, you don’t know who these two chaps are? former co-CEO’s of Research in Motion — now BlackBerry — perhaps could have done things somewhat differently)
- Apparently, Organizational Culture is Crap
- One of those posts that I didn’t expect huge traffic from, but it now sits at over 10,000 views.
- Employee Engagement is Still Poor but it Does Drive Bottom Line Results
- In case you fell off a turnip truck and hit your head, I have a particular disdain for disengagement in an organization and equal rage when people scoff at employee engagement and suggest it doesn’t have a bottom line impact.
- 42-24 … I’m 42 Today: What I’d Say to a 24 Year Old Me
- 18-year-old hindsight … although an 18 year-old Scotch might have been better
- Our Three Young Children Blog … Here’s Why
- For those that wonder why we have a 10, 8 and 6 year-old publicly blogging
- The Star Wars Mentoring Program
- I’m a Star Wars fan … don’t judge
- Did I Just Spam My Entire LinkedIn Network?
- Someone freaked out on me because I sent one email to my entire LinkedIn network asking for their assistance with the launch of my book. So, I responded. (and in the end, I think he unfollowed me everywhere)
- Flexible Working Works
- There should be no more debate Yahoo! or HP or Best Buy …. flexible working works. Period.
- I’m Not Scared of Email; I Developed a System called DADDIO
- A system I devised to help with the onslaught of electronic mail. Luis Suarez would be so proud.
- 5 Use Cases for a Corporate YouTube in Organizations
- Don’t get me started.
- Autotelic: The Word of 2013
- A tradition I started several years ago.
