Daily dose of healthy irreverence

Yesterday I heard the phrase “healthy irreverence” and immediately realized what my first post was going to be on Library Lost & Found.  My hope is that readers of this blog will learn a slew of leadership ideas from the many contributors posting from the front lines.  As you absorb the daily doses of info and advice, be sure to to practice some healthy irreverence.  Not everything you read on this blog will apply to your leadership style or your current work situation.  There is nothing wrong with extracting just what you need to make yourself a better leader.  An important characteristic of an awesome leader is the ability to not always agree with a prescribed way to manage.  Consider this your permission to challenge the thoughts of our contributors.  Remember this as you pick through our lost and found box.  Not everything you find is going to fit.

In America few people will trust you unless you are irreverent. – Norman Mailer
