"To maintain and build high performance organizations you must focus on three core ideas: reduce ambiguity, be fair and stay positive." Dr. Todd Dewett

Welcome to a special Leadership Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio. Joining us today is Dr. Todd Dewett: professor, author, leadership expert, trainer, consultant, professional speaker, caffeine addict and Harley Davidson nut. Todd partnered with John Sumser at HRExaminer to create the recent Top 25 Online Influencers in Leadership -- if you've been following the podcasts here on TotalPicture Radio, you've probably heard the interview we recorded with John last week, and with Derek Skaletsky from Traackr, the company that generated the report based on the keywords Dr. Dewett suggested they use to develop this list. -- You'll find the complete list of keywords used in the top 25 list on Todd's feature page here on TPR.

"Leadership is about supporting and building employee morale and productivity. Ultimately, these explain organizational success. Each year we see hundreds of new leadership-related books and thousands of leadership-related articles. But how much of what is new is really new? After reading most of it, I have concluded that there are a small number of things going on that explain the essence of leadership. In fact, all of the thousands of leadership ideas, tricks and tactics that have been discussed really boil down to three simple rules. To maintain and build high performance organizations you must focus on three core ideas: reduce ambiguity, be fair and stay positive."
