Weekly Round-Up: Authenticity Beats Personal Branding, Energy of Encouragement, Become a Better Listener, Why People Quit Their Jobs, & Managers of Happy Teams


Welcome to my weekly round-up of recent top leadership and communication blog posts. As many of you know, each week I read and tweet several great articles and on Fridays, I pull some of my favorites together here on my blog.

This week you’ll read articles on why Sheryl Sandberg says you don’t need a personal brand, the energy that comes from encouragement, how failure taught a leader how to become a better listener, why a lot of people quit their jobs, and 10 traits of managers whose teams are happy to come to work.
