For those of you who regularly read the i2ileadership blog, you know that I took a timeout during October. The question is … “Why?”
Truthfully, I needed a break. After nearly four years, and over 500 posts, I recognized it was time for a makeover. I had become comfortable with the site and was curious to see if I might could have an even greater impact with a few changes.
During October, I spent a lot of time evaluating and dreaming, concluding that if I wanted different results it would require different systems and behaviors. Like any business, organization, or team, individuals need to occasionally reinvent themselves if they expect to remain relevant. I am no exception.
So, it is with a plethora of emotions that today will be my last i2i post — at least for the immediate future. I am going in a new direction. I have built a new website and am launching it today at randygravitt.com (feel free to preview the site). The new tagline is, “encouraging leaders to live fully engaged lives.”
The site has a new theme, more functionality, and will allow me to share a wider variety of content such as video blogs and other forms of media. In case you want to search the i2i archives, the i2ileadership.org site will remain active, but its content has also been moved over to randygravitt.com. I will continue to develop the new site over the coming weeks, welcoming your feedback and suggestions.
Beginning tomorrow, those of you who are on the i2i distribution list will begin receiving your blogs from the new link. There is a button on the top right of the homepage for new people to subscribe by email.
One of the things I am most excited about is the addition of a Speaking Page. If you or your team needs a fresh perspective, I would love to have the opportunity to discuss with you a team building event, a staff development day, or some personal leadership coaching.
As I look ahead, I am fired up about the possibility of more connections, greater creativity, and a broader conversation. i2i has been great for me for many reasons, but at the top of that list is you, the reader. You have forwarded, shared, tweeted, posted, responded with amazing comments, and recommended i2i to your friends and co-workers. I can’t wait to carry the conversation to a new level.
One way you can help me is to share the new site with your friends. Every post will have easy to find buttons for you to pass along the content through your chosen social media vehicle. I will be grateful if you will help me spread the word.
My commitment to the readers is to continue to provide fresh content that is integrity based and designed to encourage leaders to live fully engaged lives.
Again, thank you for your contribution to the i2i community.
So, for the last time, until tomorrow …
Is there an area of your leadership where you need a makeover?
