The best newsletters to follow on Substack and LI

If you’re like me, you probably get invited to follow a lot of newsletters. It can be a bit overwhelming. So I thought I’d share a list of those that I (very happily) follow:

– If you’re interested in psychological safety, then Tom Geraghty’s newsletter has the mission of “making the world of work a better, safer, more inclusive and equitable place.”

– Andrew Marritt’s “Empirical HR” is a great read for its combination of insight, wit and the occasional dive into extreme detail.

– “From Data to Action” is the LI newsletter of Serena H. Huang, Ph.D. It has a practical focus on turning data into action through great people analytics.

– “The Element of Inclusion” by Dr. Jonathan Ashong-Lamptey has a focus on supporting leaders through evidence based inclusion. His book summaries save me a lot of reading!

– Anyone following my posts will know that trust is a central theme. Hence, I find “Rethink” with Rachel Botsman a great read. The weekly newsletter is free and the aim is to share “an idea that will make you think differently”.

– Abhishek Mittal has a great newsletter called “HRHeadStart”. He says it’s aimed at “young HR professionals and students” but I learn an awful lot from it too.

– Rita McGrath, author and professor at Columbia Business School, uses her “Thought Sparks” newsletter on Substack to share her ideas on strategy, innovation, and growth.

– “Make Work Better” by Bruce Daisley combines humour and insight and reflects his mission “to help us enjoy work again “.

– “Directionally Correct” is the Substack of Cole Napper & Scott Hines. It’s full of stories and advice on how to get value from people analytics.

– David Green’s “Data Driven HR Monthly” is the most comprehensive collection of people analytics resources on the planet, carefully selected and curated every month.

– “Frontline BeSci” from Colin Strong draws on social science and philosophy to consider how we can grapple some of the profound challenges facing us today.

– Here’s a new one: “Weekly People Research” from the prolific Nicolas Behbahani summarises lots of complicated new research into people and performance.

** Of course, I also have my own newsletter!! (“EX Leadership”). It’s quarterly and I share the very best 3-4 EX articles I’ve come across in the last few months. You can sign up here:

I hope you enjoy some / all of these. Which others would be on your list? I’d love to know what I’m missing out on!
