(Welcome to my blog on Allbusiness.com – Thanks for tuning in!)
***Updated with a few new links***
This is a big week at Management Craft!
I have three bits of news about where else you can read Management Craft, and at the end of the post, I ask for your help and offer a freebie.
First, Rosa Say is offering a week long series on re-invention and she has asked her blogging buddies to participate. Me too! Here´s her line up for the week:
Monday – Lisa Haneberg of Management Craft
Tuesday – Yvonne DiVita of Lip-Sticking
Wednesday – Anita Campbell of Small Business Trends
Thursday – Christopher Bailey of The Alchemy of Soulful Work
Friday – K.Todd Storch of Business Thoughts
Saturday – Wayne Hurlbert of Blog Business World
Check out each post by clicking on Talking Story by Say Leadership Coaching.
Here’s the link to Yvonne’s re-invention post.

That´s very cool, and there´s more:
Todd, over at 1800CEOREAD asked me to read and then write a review of Daniel Pink´s A Whole New Mind. Todd teed up the events for the week here. My review hit today (Tuesday). Please check out my review and the others, it´s a good book (I will also post my review on this site). Daniel and I exchanged a couple emails and I have included his responses in the review. Other reviewers include the perennially profound Evelyn Rodriguez (Crossroads Dispatches), John Moore (Brand Autopsy) and Cathy Alper (Leadership Strategies).
Todd will also share links all week to excerpts and other merriment. An extravaganza for Daniel Pink"s latest!
That´s very cool, and there´s MORE:
I’m pleased as punch to let you know that Management Craft can now be seen on more than one channel! The Management Craft blog will be broadcast on Allbusiness.com as part of their Blog Center. They just launched yesterday with six bloggers, of which I am proud to be one. Allbusiness.com is seeking to be THE PORTAL for leaders and owners of small to medium sized businesses.
Click here to check out the blog center. My fellow bloggers include:
Matt Blumberg – Only Once (Category=Blogging my Business)
Denise O´Berry – Just for Small Business (Category=Starting/Running Business)
Denise Wakeman – Your Project Partner (Category=Internet Marketing)
Lori Richardson – Sales Diva (Category=Sales)
John Jantsch – Duct Tape Marketing (Category=Marketing)
And there will be more blogs added to the Blog Center.
Click here to check out my blog. I really like the way they brought my Haneberg Management logo into the top banner.
I will offer the same posts in both spots, so if you like the company I am keeping over at Allbusiness.com, feel free to move on over there. Some of you might be wondering why I am doing this:
First, and foremost, partnering with Allbusiness.com allows me to broaden the audience for Management Craft. I´m an introvert with extroverted fingers and the opportunity to converse with more people makes the writer in me jump with joy. The additional exposure will benefit my business, too.
Blogging is a community thing, and I like being a member of this community. I like what Allbusiness is up to. A lot of my readers are leaders and managers of small businesses.
All very cool. Thanks Rosa, 1800CEOREAD, and Allbusiness.com for inviting me to invade your space!
P.S. One more thing: In the interest of keeping up my practice of making at least five unreasonable requests per week to make BIG THINGS HAPPEN, I have this humble request.
Back story: My agent tells me that my editor is going to be meeting with her editorial board next Tuesday to discuss whether they will offer me another book deal, and, if yes, which book they want me to write (I have given them a few proposals to choose from). I want my editor to go into that meeting as high on me as possible!
The Request: If you’ve been thinking of ordering my book, High Impact Middle Management, I would be MOST APPRECIATIVE if you bought it today-Friday from Amazon.com, BN.com or 1800CEOREAD.com. Having better sales rankings might help seal or sweeten the deal!
The Bribe/Deal: I will send my Meeting Cheat Sheets to anyone who buys my book over the internet this week (3/21-3/28). What are these, you ask? I have created check lists of great questions and suggestions for several kinds of group meetings. Take the sheets with you to meetings, hand them out, and watch the dialogue improve! It’s magic. OK, maybe that’s a bit dramatic… These lists come to you in PDF format. You can print and copy the cheat sheets to use again and again. To get your free Meeting Cheat Sheets, forward your email receipt from Amazon/BN/1800CEOREAD to me at lisa at haneberg-management.com and I will send it out to you.
Here’s how to order:
