Have you ever gone to a group discussion on LinkedIn and been dismayed at the lack of true discussion? And all you see is people posting links to their blogs without engaging with the readers?
Well, after receiving over 700 responses to a poll on what the L2L Group members want to see, we created new guidelines. Please see them below and let me know if they are clear and if we are missing anything.
If you are not a member of this thriving group, please join over 25,000 members on the Linked 2 Leadership Group here

Some people pretend to start a discussion, but are just promoting their own blog or interesting article by pasting in the initial blog content and add new content or change the blog content a bit…
So, to properly start a discussion on the L2L Discussion area on the LinkedIn Group site, please actually start a true discussion and add you blog or interesting article link as a subordinate feature to add clarity, show more information, or help the discussion along.
In this way, you will be helping the whole group to learn, grow, and develop other leaders without coming across as a huckster, schmarketer, or self-promoter.
So, for those who would like to contribute, please follow these simple rules and help us become better leaders!
