This month's midway of attractions is bigger and better than ever. While last month's successful inaugural carnival had an impressive 37 posts, this month's edition features 41 posts!
I also did a couple things to enhance the quality of the carnival . First, I reached out to some of my favorite leadership development bloggers and asked them to submit posts. I was also more selective this month, rejecting a few submissions that I didn't feel were relevant enough to the carnival theme of leadership or leadership development.
So go ahead - buy yourself a cotton candy, play a game of chance, ride the ferris wheel, and spend a few hours soaking up some of the best leadership development advice and information you'll ever receive!
Here's posts from authors that I read on a regular basis:
We'll start off with a double dose of Wally Bock, who presents Why the definition of leadership doesn't matter and posted at his Three Star Leadership Blog, and Feedback: breakfast of champions posted at his other blog, Momentor.
Next up is Art Petty presenting The Emerging and Strange Alliance Between Boomers and Millennials posted at Art Petty on Management.
