The American Management Association recently announced the inaugural edition of their Top 30 Leaders in Business list. Congratulations to the 30 authors, thought leaders, professors, business experts and many more who were honored on their list.
I especially want to congratulate my business partner, our own Bob Burg. He is so humble and I know that he cringed at the thought of me writing this post. He does not consider Leadership one of his core areas. However, I beg to differ with him. His speaking and writings in the area of influence and success principles are powerful and insightful. And, they are at the core of great leadership. He also leads by setting such an excellent example.
I would also like to congratulate Adam Grant and Dan Rockwell who are on the list as well. Adam for his bestselling book Give and Take and for being one of the top business professors in the world. Dan for his inspiring writings on his Leadership Freak blog which is one of the most socially-shared leadership blogs in the world. We so appreciate the contribution Adam and Dan make to our Go-Giver Community and the world.
Here’s the announcement post on the AMA’s blog:
The results are in. Over the past two months, AMA asked for your help in determining the top 30 leaders in business of 2014. After the voting concluded, we calculated scores based on your voices, social media followings, and publication citations. Over 200 candidates were nominated, and after extensive research, careful deliberation, and your help, we are excited to announce who made the inaugural edition of this list. The list of top 30 leaders in business for 2014 includes thought leaders, authors, professors, management experts, and many more. The breadth of candidates from across the business world was tremendous, and AMA thanks everyone who participated for their input.
