Each week I put the Top 10 Leadership Posts I read the previous week in alphabetical order by the writer’s last name. Because of a great honor I received in the last two weeks, I am making a slight adjustment to that process.
Charles Specht just released his post Top 50 Leaders In Leadership. In addition to being a great resource, this list of top leaders is ranked in order according to their Alexa rank. Alexa’s traffic rankings are based on the usage patterns of Alexa Toolbar users and data collected from other, diverse sources over a rolling 3-month period. A site’s ranking is based on a combined measure of reach and pageviews. Reach is determined by the number of unique Alexa users who visit a site on a given day. Pageviews are the total number of Alexa user URL requests for a site.
Thanks to you, the readers, and your faithfulness in visiting this site and telling others about it, we came in at #30!!! This is truly humbling all I can say is, “Thank You Lord! Thank you readers!”
Now, on to my remaining nine favorite posts of the week…in alphabetical order.
