Follow the Leader

23 Dec

Come follow the leader. That’s right, in 2009 we’ll have the list of  who’s who among women to be following in the new anonymous-leadership-50003731year.  We are taking nominations and asking YOU why these women should be named “The Most Influential Women” in 2009.

The nominations are pouring in and we’ll continue to take them until December 31st. Then, we’ll go through all the nominations and pick the top ten women to be interviewed and announced the last week in January.

Nominations should be for women that show strong leadership skills in the areas of parenting, relationships, and/or business.  They should be known  for their desire to help others and their willingness to lead the way into a brighter future.

So, get your nominations in. Each winner will be interviewed and showcased on Kat Logic and other various BLOGs. They will carry the title and the banner of Most Influential Women for an entire year and could assist in next year’s search and interviews.

Thank you for all that have already sent your nominations in and I look forward to the ones on the way.

Don’t forget to sign up for the Kat Logic Book Club and the Kat Logic Newsletter .

Happy Holidays.

    I need to think hard about this. It’s a wonderful idea, Kat.

    Now, Ron …you know I can’t be nominated if I’m running it. But I do thank you for the compliment!

    Joyce on the other hand is definitely deserving.

    I want to vote for someone who is already nominated but I don’t see an area to cast my vote? If I re-nominate a person does that count as a vote?

    I think Susan Kildahl is doing an outstanding job at many things. She is running 2 or 3 different network groups. She assists many people with their business & marketing goals. She is a big advocate for Social Networks including twitter & helps people signup and use these mediums.

    Thanks Steve. We aren’t voting yet, just adding nominations. I appreciate you leaving a summary as to why Susan should be one of the chosen Most Influential Women to follow in 2009.

    I’ll be adding links to each nominee’s site within the next few days so everyone can check them out for themselves.

    I would like to cast a vote for Susan Kildahl

    I don’t see any mechanism for voting, so am going to be a second second for Susan Kildahl’s nomination. Susan runs multiple networking groups, groups that often meet in the same week. Susan brings a terrific engery to each group. She has a real knack for giving the appropriate nudge, shove, or kick in the butt to get new members into the networking mix. She shamelessly promotes members of her networks. She has many coaching clients, all of whom rave about her. Still, she finds the time and energy to organize and host a radio show once a week. Maybe we should be nominating her for a couple of influential women awards.

    I would like to add an additional vote for Susan Kildahl. She has demonstrated remarkable leadership qualities. Her focus has been empowering other women in business to make a success.

    Katrina, thank you for this honor – so unexpected! But I have to give credit where credit is due, and that’s to the millions of women who wake up every morning and go about their day doing both ordinary and extraordinary things…including blogging as you do.

    They are what I write about, and they provide food for thought every single day. There aren’t enough hours to cover all that I want to share, but I toil away at it and hope that women (and men) reading about the everyday and the exceptional events in women’s lives will move us all forward.

    I compare what’s happening here with what my mother’s generation faced, women who were relatively isolated from each other – who socialized over coffee and cake in impeccable homes they spent hours maintaining.

    What a difference a few decades make. The fact that we can connect with each other at any time of day or night, and build friendships as meaningful and enriching as those we have in our face-to-face lives – that says something about the power of women and community, especially the online world.

    I also must admit that my home isn’t impeccable – I write this in the midst of the post-Christmas disorder – but sometimes that’s almost a badge of honor to me, my way of saying, “I’m not perfect – and I don’t expect you to be, either.”

    Happy holidays to you and your family, and may we all enjoy a happy and healthy 2009.
