In February of this year I learned that I had earned the #18 spot on the 2019 list of Top 30 Global Gurus (2020 update: I’m #6!) in the Leadership category. What an honor!
What is Global Gurus?
Global Gurus is a research organization that selects remarkable leaders who make an impact. In their judging, they focus on those who develop and instill competency in others. The winners support knowledge and personal/organizational development in their fields through speaking, training, books, and media.
In Good Company
Many of my close colleagues for decades are also on the list. I am especially thrilled to be included with my friends Tom Peters, Jim Kouzes, John Boldoni, Ken Blanchard, David Nour, Jim Collins, and Ram Charam. See the complete list.
The Top 30 Gurus are the cream of the crop, viewed as the most influential professional speakers, trainers, coaches and consultants on the planet. They apply their world-class skills, experience, research and overall smarts to help organizations achieve market excellence and assure that leaders reach their full potential.
According to the Global Gurus website, judging criteria focus on public opinion, originality of ideas, impact of original ideas, practicality of ideas, presentation style, number of publications and writings, and finally – the Guru factor.
It is an honor to help leaders around the world, particularly women, recognize, articulate and act on their greatest strengths. Thank you, Global Gurus, for your recognition of my work. I look forward to continuing my work with the leaders of today and tomorrow.
