Welcome to the newest edition of the Leadership Development Carnival. The Carnival always includes a variety of perspectives and insights for leadership learning. I am pleased to host this month and thankful to Dan McCarthy for the opportunity to welcome so many amazing bloggers to our leadership learning corner.
Here at LeaderTalk, we are in the middle of a series about perseverance. In keeping with that theme, this is the endurance edition of the Leadership Development Carnival. These posts are loaded with ideas and priniciples that you will want to remember and put into practice. To read through to the end, though, may require endurance: there are a record high number of posts included in this month's carnival, including many bloggers included in this carnival for the first time.
I hope you'll enjoy each one and find some practical ideas to implement immediately. As an added bonus to this month's carnival, I have included links to bloggers' Twitter pages. I also created a group so you can follow all the Twitter users who contributed to this carnival with just a few clicks. (Many thanks to Anne Perschel who helped me gather the links to the Twitter pages!)
