Welcome to the February 2013 Leadership Development Carnival.
This month’s Carnival offers an array of fresh insights for a fresh year. There’s a lot of good material here, so don’t be afraid to bookmark this page or add it to your reading list to cover each post one at a time. To help guide your way through, we’ve divided the posts up by the three categories we at LDRLB tend to see the world through: leadership, innovation, and strategy.
Many of these posts belong in multiple categories, but that’s the nature of these three domains. They overlap substantially and, where they do, that’s where the most important lessons are.
A special thanks to all who contributed to this months carnival and to Dan McCarthy at Great Leadership for humbly serving as chief instigator.
