Sticky: Starting the TOL site

Posted: December 18th, 2008 | Author: | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments »

Today marks the day we decided to break TOL out into its own entity.  It will still have the usual content brought to you every month, but we wanted to bring you a resource that was comprehensive and easy to access the archives.

Please check back soon for the new design, RSS feeds and to sign up to receive TOL to your inbox.

While you are waiting why not download the latest Thoughts on Leadership PDF or maybe you would prefer to watch or listen to the latest episodes.

This is a sticky post so for the next few months will stay at the top of the blog posts. Below you will find all the new posts from December 08 onwards. This sticky post will move down to the bottom of the posts once we have TOL up and running properly.
