Weekly Leader recognized as Mover & Shaker by Post Rank

Our friend Becky Robinson over at the great Leader Talk blog at Mountain State University’s School of Leadership and Professional Development sent us a tweet today congratulating us on our PostRank listing. That was news to us so we checked it out and were thrilled to learn that we were recognized as the Mover & Shaker in the Leadership category.

Here’s what PostRank says:

We also wanted to recognized those who worked their butts off this year, and have the audience and influence growth to show for it. Those bloggers who showed the biggest engagement growth over the course of the year have been awarded our Biggest Movers & Shakers award. Will these folks will win the Most Engagement award next year?

Not only that but Weekly Leader was 5th out of 53 blogs as measured by engagement in 2009.  The 2009 list is an awesome library for leadership learning and we are humbled yet ecstatic to find Weekly Leader on it.

This recognition means a lot to us because it validates our strategy. We’ve worked hard at using a wide range of communication tools and social media in an effort to engage people in leadership dialogue and learning. In addition to the blog, we have a weekly podcast and use Twitter and Delicious extensively. We’ll soon be experimenting with short-form podcasts as well as an enewsletter. We’ve been doing all of these things because we know that people experience the Internet in different ways, places and times and we wanted to give them a range of opportunities to discover what we feel is relevant, useful information to help them develop their leadership. From our Post Rank recognition, this strategy seems to be working.

Thank you Post Rank for recognizing the Weekly Leader team’s efforts and thanks to Pam Fox Rollin, Mario Vittone and Dr. Ed Brenegar for all of your thought and effort that you invest in Weekly Leader.
