Forbes.com’s new channel shows growing public interest in regularly learning and dialoguing about leadership issues
Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) August 11, 2006
Global leadership development and executive coaching consultancy LeaderSource announces that its founder and CEO Kevin Cashman will contribute a regular column to the Forbes.com Leadership channel. The monthly advice column, set to debut August 14, will be called “Consult Cashman: A Forum for Senior Leaders” and will engage top-level executives on emerging leadership issues, offering general thoughts as well as responses to specific, submitted questions.
Intended to generate a true dialogue with today’s leaders and bring important topics to the forefront of their agendas, the first column will discuss the “leadership energy crisis,” an issue underscored this past May as a record 148 CEOs left their posts. Other noted authorities joining Cashman on the Leadership channel include Harvey Pitt, the former head of the SEC, Clayton Christiansen, best-selling author and professor at Harvard Business School and Barbara Kellerman, former research director at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.
“Forbes.com’s new channel shows growing public interest in regularly learning and dialoguing about leadership issues,” said Cashman, who hosted a Twin Cities radio talk show several years ago giving career advice. “Leadership decisions and dilemmas are often at the center of today’s headlines, but few venues have existed to regularly analyze these stories from that vantage point.”
Kevin Cashman has written and contributed to a number of books and articles on leadership, including “Leadership from the Inside Out,” which was named the No. 1 best-selling business book of 2000 and one of the top 20 best-selling business books of the decade by CEO-READ. He has coached thousands of senior executives and senior teams throughout his career, consulting organizations including General Mills, Novartis, Avery Dennison, 3M, Medtronic, State Street Bank, Carlson Companies and Honeywell. He is a senior fellow of the Caux Roundtable, a global consortium of CEOs dedicated to enhancing principle-based leadership internationally, and serves on the board of the Center for Ethical Business Cultures at the University of St. Thomas College of Business.
