The Battle of the Carnivals

It's the battle of two carnivals, which isn't nearly as violent as one would imagine. With both the Leadership Development Carnival and Carnival of HR arriving on the same day - today - readers have a plethora of new articles to choose from.

The Leadership Development Carnival, hosted at, revolves around a theme of self-improvement. The Carnival comes equipped with 28 articles, covering topics such as:
  • Succession planning
  • 2009 predictions
  • Caring for employees
  • Line manager tips and coaching
The Carnival of HR, hosted at the Pennsylvania Labor & Employment Blog, has only 16 articles, but with a theme of "change," it seems all the more relevant. Topics include:
  • Great leaders with little experience vs. so-so leaders with vast experience
  • How not to confound expectations
  • Salary increases and base pay goals
  • More workplace forecasts and predictions
Check out both and determine for yourself which deserves the title of "The Best Carnival of January 21, 2009."
