thumbs upSince The Grossman Group launched the new yourthoughtpartner.com in March of 2010, I’ve been sharing my thoughts on and experiences with internal communication here on this blog.  Though I had not had experience with blogging in the past, I have discovered that I enjoy it immensely for two primary reasons:  1) It challenges me to work through my daily experiences and shape them into cohesive material with valuable (I hope!) takeaways.  And 2) It affords me an unprecedented opportunity to engage with other leaders and communicators, to get valuable feedback, and to feel how what we do at The Grossman Group is connected to an extensive community of professionals, all of whom are working daily to master and advance communications best practices.

I know it was elucidating to me to learn what topics resonated the most, and so I thought I would revisit with all of you the most popular blog posts of 2010.  So, without further ado, following are The Top 5 Most Popular Blog Posts from 2010, counting down from number 5…
