    I look forward to hearing from you.



  2. Elaine,

    I am part of a team that is building a list of INFLUENTIAL LEADERSHIP BLOGS for a new resource to be located at NextGenerationLeader.com. Our goal is to equip up and coming leaders with resources to help them grow and maximize their impact.

    1. We plan to list your blog and wanted to know if there is any additional information you’d like us to share (resources, download, links, etc).

    2. Would you be willing to let us conduct a brief interview with you (phone or written) to share with our audience? The interview would be geared around five leadership imperatives.

    The site will launch live later this year and be supported through a number of partners with a large amount of reach.

    Thank you in advance for your time and consideration.
