Catch the September Leadership Development Carnival

Dan McCarthy , the brains behind Great Leadership, has outdone himself, if that is even possible (for a great writer and – dare I say? FOIL) with this month’s Leadership Development Carnival. A truly wonderful connector and networker, Dan and his blog are what we all aspire to be. He’s managed to pull together a great community of leadership bloggers and to write an appreciative comment or two about many of them.

I am honored to have my own post, Four Selfish Reasons to Develop Your Employees featured amongst some top leadership thinkers and writers.

This month’s carnival is worth your time to pull up a chair, grab a cup of coffee and peruse, browse, study, examine, learn and read. Thanks Dan for all you do to promote the leadership blogging community!

I am a former executive in a Fortune 100 company. I have owned and operated an executive coaching firm since 2003 called Aspire Collaborative Services LLC. We partner with great leaders to help them become even greater at developing, improving, and sustaining relationships with the people who are essential to their success. This blog is for leaders and those who help them to be more intentional about relationships at work. My top personal values include respect for others, kindness, compassion, collaboration and gratitude. I work very hard at practicing my values daily and when I don’t succeed, I practice some more. I am married with two wonderful daughters and two spoiled pugs.
