Open the Leadership Development Carnival, Holiday Celebration Edition

Jane Perdue hosts this month’s Leadership Development Carnival, and in the true spirit of the season, she provides us with a great gift of 53 wonderful posts. My thanks to Jane for including my own post, How to Inspire Others, among them. So pour yourself a glass of eggnog, settle into the season and open the presents at her site, Get Your Leadership Big On!

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.
