Your favourite leadership content so far of 2021

Written by: Jonathan Dunnett

As we draw to a close for the first quarter of 2021, we wanted to take a look at the most popular leadership content for the quarter. As such, we had a look at our analytics to see what was most popular with you, our Enable Leaders community.

What I absolutely love about this range of leadership content is the diversity of backgrounds and experiences from the writers. The writers of this content ranged from those in the academic realm, to trained actors and to leadership coaches. All of these writers gave us excellent content to consider and I hope you enjoy it as I did.

Take a look at what we saw:

Emotions and Psychology

Adam Grant

Adam’s piece, Procrastinate Much? Manage Your Emotions, Not Your Time, clearly resonated with our audience.

If you’re not familiar with Adam, he is an organizational psychologist and bestselling author who recently released a new book, Think Again.

Jonathan Dunnett

I wrote a piece for Enable Leaders called, The Secret, Destructive Power of Unbridled Optimism. If you’re anything like me, you can probably spot someone you know that chooses to stick their head in the sand and not hear what is being said.

You may also want to check out another piece I recently wrote, “It’s done.” What House of Cards can teach us on emotional regulation. You can also follow me on LinkedIn or Twitter to learn more about me.


Suzan Bond

Suzan’s piece, How I Nearly Burned Out as a Leader (and Why I’m Not Alone), was immensely popular with our readers (probably not surprising, especially during a pandemic).

As a leadership coach that works with new tech executives, Suzan draws on her previous experiences to help those making the transition. You can find out more about her on her website.

Holding Better Meetings

Sabina Nawaz

Sabina wrote an excellent piece called, The Game-Changing Question That Can Maximize The Impact Of Your Meetings, that you should definitely check out.

Sabina is a very experienced executive who focuses on coaching and leadership development.

Elizabeth Doty

Elizabeth, who is working with the University of Michigan and has her own company, Leadership Momentum, wrote a great piece (also about meetings) called, Why the first five minutes of a meeting shape its outcome.
