Check Out the January Leadership Development Carnival!

The first Leadership Development Carnival of 2010 is up at Dan McCarthy’s Great Leadership site. And what a wonderful selection of the finest leadership bloggers and their best 2009 posts it is! Quick. Grab a cup of hot cocoa (with a touch of Peppermint Schnapps, perhaps), put your feet up, and be prepared to be amazed at what you’ll discover.

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.
