Top 30 “Hidden Gem” Leadership Blogs

Top 30 “Hidden Gem” Leadership Blogs

The Research

In January of 2013 we released our list of the Top 30 Socially-Shared Leadership Blogs. We went through a quite a process to find these top 30 blogs. We know that it wasn’t a perfect process as we were later told that we missed some great blogs that probably would have qualified. In response to your feedback, we’ve taken that effort one step further.

Hidden Gems

The research we did to find the Top 30 actually produced a list of 86 leadership blogs. So we decided to highlight the next 30 in our list. We’re calling them the 30 “Hidden Gem” Leadership Blogs.

Although these blogs had fewer social shares than the top 30, we think they are worth looking at and following. The social share data were pulled between December 5th and 7th of 2012. Here is the list of “Hidden Gems:”
