We have liftoff! For the last few months I’ve been working with a lot of new technologies preparing to build a leadership web destination. The community of leaders we have assembled on LinkedIn and Facebook and Twitter (@mikehenrysr/leadchange and @mikehenrysr/@leadchange-2) is unparalleled. Now it’s time to take it to the next level.
Thanks to Shawn Murphy of Achieved Strategies and Phil Tretheway of Trethaway Designs, we have a new badge! Check this out. Now you can show off your membership in the community.
When you become a member of the group, if you have a blog, we will list your blog in the Leadership Blogs page on this site. This will serve as a free resource for people searching for blogs and it will also help both of our sites. To list your blog there are 3 steps:
- Register (if you haven’t already) and enter your blog in the Details part of your profile. Click on your name in the login box and Edit Profile / Details.
- Then, on your blog, create a text widget. Insert the following code which will place a 125×125 badge in your sidebar that tells the world you’re part of the LeadChange community.
- Send a message or tweet to me with the name and category you’d like your blog placed in.
I’ll click the link to your website from your profile and confirm everything.
Oh, I almost forgot the code for the badge. This will give you a badge that links to the home page.

And this will give you a badge that links to the Leadership Blogs page.

And if you feel like you’re giving something away when you do this, you can also have the link go to a different page than the blogs link here on the website. If you’re a member, just send them to your member profile page. The way you do that is to edit the link above and replace the link for the leadership blogs page with a link to your members profile. If you have any questions, please just drop me a line.
All November we’ll be publicizing the members in the community that are helping make the LeadChange site a destination for people interested in character-based leadership. For example, we published a Contributors Carnival post yesterday. The idea is to direct Lead Change readers back to the websites of our Contributing Members. If we do this together, we will make a difference and our world will be changed.
The only question is, will you take part? Well, will you?
