The December Leadership Development Carnival

Posted By on Dec 7, 2009


The new leadership carnival logo on TwitpicLet me begin with a “thank you” to your usual host – the illustrious Dan McCarthy of Great Leadership – for allowing Inflexion Point to serve as guest host for the December Leadership Development Carnival. I’m also happy to unveil a brand new logo, a wonderment that saved me hours of pouring through Google results for a non-creepy carnival themed image.

Leadership Whiteout

The good thing about a whiteout is that you have no choice but to stop and pay attention:

Surviving The Blizzard

2009 has been anything but easy:

We often have no choice but to push forward:

Let’s face it, some employees/leaders may be more unique than others:

Brain Freeze

Sure it’s cold, but that’s really no excuse:

Good stuff. Thank you to all of our contributors. Our hope is that you discovered some new voices and enjoyed the perspectives and thoughts of those with whom you may already be familiar.

Did you have a favorite? How many hot apple ciders did you drink? What issues would you like this crowd to tackle in 2010? Share your thoughts below and let’s keep the (leadership) conversation going.

  1. Hi Mark, thank you for including me as part of the carnival and yes, I did find a few new voices. This is a great group of thinkers and writers. The topics that catch my attention these days are building community and healthy leadership relationships. No hot apple ciders for me yet but a hot toddy may be on the agenda soon!

  4. This leadership development carnival is very useful who wants to develop their leadership skills, because now a day’s leadership is most essential part of every business. We have to develop leadership skill to achieve great success in our business. It takes time to learn and develop the leadership. Every leader not only needs to have good verbal skills, but also listening and visual skills.
