Shawn’s Top 10 Posts of 2012
This year went by so fast slowly. How it’s possible that we’re nearing the end of 2012 is beyond me. It was a packed year with many peaks and valleys. Certainly a highlight was the genesis of Switch and Shift.
Ted and I could not be more pleased with the response to the content all our contributors share on reshaping leadership for the 21st century. We have beefy plans for 2013 to ratchet up our flavor to the leadership conversation. We’ll need to share those another time.
For the time at hand, let me carry on the list making Ted started yesterday. Here are my ten top posts, following the criteria Ted presented you yesterday. It seems my curiosity and need to explore meaning and purpose in the workplace resonated with readers.

Ted nicely summed up his list yesterday reminding us that there is plenty of heavy lifting left to do. Transforming an organization to thrive in the 21st century is a key business issue. We’re eager to take it on newly in the coming year. We invite you to join the conversation.
Happy New Year!
