Welcome to the August 2011 edition of the Leadership Training blog carnival. Thank you to the marvelous experts who have taken the time to share their leadership wisdom and insights this month. Here are their thoughtful articles.
Kristin Widun presents Who Are Your Customers? posted at Lead in the Moment, saying, “Many organizations have spent time and resources to determine what motivates the consumer. However, very little time has been spent trying to identify the needs of an organization’s employees. Providing employees with excellent service is a pre-requisite for excellence in service to guests, and should be an important consideration of management.”
Charles Chua C K presents Are you Living Your Life Effectively like Managing a Business posted at All About Living with Life.
Roz Greefield presents Looking For Lasting Results From Your Training Programs? Virtual Training Re-Introduces: Incremental Learning | Training in the 21st Century posted at Training in the 21st Century.
Andy Klein presents Is trust earned or given? There should be no debate posted at Fortune Group Blog, saying, “”Is trust earned or given?” Some of the best minds in leadership see the question as a true dilemma, as if there is no right answer. But to us, there is a right answer.”
Kathy C presents Why Do Organizational Change Efforts Often Fail? posted at The Thriving Small Business, saying, “Organizations reorganize internal structures and processes to better align with changing conditions and business demands or because of a crisis that affects the organization.”
Jailan Marie presents There are no great companies, just great people, who happen to work there. posted at Innovative Solutions For Positive Change, saying, “John Chappelear wrote: When you focus on making your people great, the result is a great organization.”
Jim Logan presents Popular marketing-speak that doesn’t say anything posted at B2B Rainmaker, saying, “Until you define words like world-class, they don’t hold meaning. And without meaning, they’re discounted, misinterpreted or simply ignored. You may have the best offer in the world, but if you don’t shine light on the things that are great about it, it might unnecessarily be overlooked, hidden behind a weak description such as full service.”
I look forward to hearing from you for the next edition which will come out September 15th. Submit your blog article by September 10th for the next edition using the carnival submission form.
