New voices - Chris Hitch

Miguel

challenged us to find new voices


. Between now and February 17 I am profiling

eight nine bloggers that I've found informative and intriguing. Most represent a leadership perspective and are relatively unknown.

All are thinking in deep and interesting ways and thus deserve to be

brought closer to the surface of the blogosphere.

Today's new voice: Chris Hitch, The Executive's Edge

Chris is director of the North Carolina Principal Fellows Program, which is housed in the University of North Carolina's Center for School Leadership Development. Chris also is affiliated with the North Carolina Principals' Executive Program. Chris has a wide and varied background, including stints as a principal, human resources director, and corporate product manager. Chris' posts tend to be short but interesting. His self-stated intent is to 'communicate and share leadership and management nuggets from various perspectives.' He does this extremely well.

Here are a few posts to get you

started:

  • BE Interested (be sure to follow the link to the saltshaker theory of management)
  • Rafting, Guides, and Leadership
  • Rafting and Leadership (part 2)
