50 Top Leaders in Leadership Blogging

Rankings as of: November 6, 2015

Have you ever wondered who are the top leaders from around the world focusing specifically on the area of Leadership? I have, and that’s why I started compiling the below list of top leaders, because I want to know who they are.

Leadership: Top Leaders

This list of the world’s 50 Top Leaders in Leadership Blogging is to remain an unfinished list. It will be updated no less than annually, but likely every quarter.

Names of top leaders will be added and names will be removed.

I am looking for influential people to follow and introduce my readers to, so if you know of some top leaders who focus primarily on leadership and should be recommended for addition to this list, tell me the following (in the “comments” section below):

  • What is his/her name?
  • What is the URL to his/her blog?
  • What is the main concentration of his/her expertise?

An effective leader is someone who casts a great vision and knows how to get others excited about it.

Theory Behind the Ranking System

The list of top leaders is ranked in order according to their Alexa rank. Alexa’s traffic rankings are based on the usage patterns of Alexa Toolbar users and data collected from other, diverse sources over a rolling 3-month period. A site’s ranking is based on a combined measure of reach and pageviews. Reach is determined by the number of unique Alexa users who visit a site on a given day. Pageviews are the total number of Alexa user URL requests for a site. However, multiple requests for the same URL on the same day by the same user are counted as a single pageview. The sites with the highest combination of users and pageviews are ranked #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #8, #9, etc. (i.e. GoogleFacebook, YouTube, BaiduYahoo, Amazon, Wikipedia, Qq, Twitter, etc.)
