    Interesting article with SlideShare about leadership lessons learned from LinkedIn “Influencers” and making the most of one’s career choices:

    3 to See: Making the Most of Your Career

    “LinkedIn’s Influencers shared stories of their best career mistakes this week:

    • Newyorker.com editor Nicholas Thompson got fired from “60 Minutes” — in less than 60 minutes.
    • Golden State Warriors owner Peter Guber fired Jeremy Lin before he became a superstar.
    • And Accretive Solutions CEO Richard Moran accidentally hit the “Reply All” button.”

    “It’s proof that career paths can be unpredictable. Yet you can still hone and guide them — and learn from your mistakes. These three presentations from the past week touch on just that.”

    FYI – recent post from a LinkedIn “Influencer”:

    How LinkedIn Quietly Built a Massive Media Empire (excerpts)

    • “Imagine an online publication with over 200 million readers…
    • Now imagine that this publication’s writers included Barack Obama, Richard Branson, Deepak Chopra, Jack Welch, Tony Robbins, Mark Cuban, David Cameron, Arianna Huffington, Sallie Krawcheck and 300 other global thought leaders…
    • Finally, imagine that each article written for this publication generated over twice as much engagement (in comments, likes and shares) as any other publication in the world. Imagine the media empire that could be created if a publication like this existed…
    • You don’t need to imagine, as LinkedIn has quietly created just this with their Influencers program, through which you’re reading this article right now.”
