Centennial’s 2017 “Best of the Blog”

Centennial's Blog is a Team Effort

When we were mapping out our strategic plan for 2017, our marketing team set an aggressive goal:  To publish a blog post every Monday. We wanted our posts to enhance your leadership—helping you lead yourself, your teams, and your organization.

Fifty-two (52!) weeks of content–it seemed like a lofty goal.

But– we got it done. And, this is post #1 –of 52–for 2018.

Achieving this goal took tremendous team chemistry.  While the lion’s share of the work fell on our marketing manager, Janelle Spence, the entire Centennial team had ideas they wanted to share with you. Furthermore, our loyal readers, now numbering more than 24,000, gave us ideas of what they wanted to read.  Our guest bloggers also provided the perfect perspective and expertise. It truly was a team effort.

Listed below are some of the Centennial team’s 2017 posts.  Which is your favorite?
