We received some good news over the weekend. Our blog has been added to the Business Intelligence area onAlltop.com. Why is this such a big deal?
If you’re like most of us, you may find it difficult to keep up with all the terrific online content. I subscribe to a few blogs and read their email versions on my iPhone while traveling (but never while driving!). When I do have to time to catch up on my online reading, I find myself bouncing around in an unproductive search for something that catches my eye.
The folks at Alltop have now made our lives much easier. Guy Kawasaki, Will Mayall and Kathryn Henkenscreated Alltop as an “online magazine rack” where you can get stories on your area of interest. Dan Roam, author of Back of the Napkin: Solving Problems with Pictures illustrates how it works with a few Roam-like drawings.
Basically, you customize a view of the topics you are interested in and then Alltop does the work for you. My interests center around Leadership, Business Intelligence, Sales, Marketing and Executive Coaching and that’s just on the business side.
So how does Alltop build business value? If you are a leader of a midmarket company and are not sharpening your leadership saw on a regular basis, you are having a negative impact on your company value. Aristotle said “an unexamined life is not worth living”. You and your leadership team must continue to examine your ability to lead and manage and staying current with the latest online content can help you do just that.
