Welcome to the November, 2012 edition of the Leadership Development Carnival!
For you reading pleasure, this month's Carnival offers up a Fall harvest of posts from some of the best leadership bloggers from around the world.
There's way too much good stuff to try to read it all in one sitting. Pace yourself - read a few, then come back for more delicious leftovers.
And please excuse the weird quilt of fonts and colors - a lot of slicing, dicing, pasting, and basting goes into preparing a Carnival. Google's Blogger was not being very cooperative. Just when I think it's right, I hit "preview", and it's a complete surprise each time.

We'll lead off with Jennifer Miller, from The People Equation. "When you hire someone, did you know you’ve agreed to an unspoken “contract” with your new employee? Learn the 10 Answers People Want Before Saying Yes to a Job so you’ll be prepared to address those unspoken questions."

Over the years I’ve had many conversations with clients and non-clients who are, or will soon be, C-suite leaders. If you’d like to know how they get there, read on ..."
Mary Jo Asmus, from Mary Jo Asmus uses William Bridges change model to provide a framework for Personal Transition for Better Leadership.
Joel Garfinkle, from Career Advancement Blog shows us how to Take on High-Visibility Projects without Doubling Your Workload.
BTW, if you like these monthly Carnivals, then I'd highly recommend buying and reading The Character-Based Leader: Instigating a Leadership Revolution...One Person at a Time. It's a great collection written by Mike and many of our Carnival regular contributors.
