Two workplace-related blog carnivals

by Carmen Van Kerckhove

There are two great blog carnivals for you to check out.

The latest edition of the Carnival of the Capitalists is up on Spooky Action.

Be sure to read Wally Bock’s post, Addicted to Praise. It’s a fascinating look at how the high levels of protection and praise received by the millenial generation has either good or bad consequences, depending on who you ask:

They have lower rates of just about every destructive set of behavior that you can imagine, including crime, teenage pregnancy, and drug abuse. On the plus side, they volunteer time to charitable causes. The Points of Light Foundation reports that the number of people aged 16 to 24 who volunteer 100 or more hours a year has risen nearly 18 percent since 2002 according to Census data.

This is a hard working generation, but they are showing up at your workplace with a high need for praise, an expectation for rewards, and not much experience dealing with negative feedback. That presents a challenge and, predictably, there have been some bizarre responses.

Also head on over to The Organic Leadership Blog to read the latest edition of the Carnival of Leadership Growth.

I particularly enjoyed John Wesley’s Why the 9 to 5 Office Worker Will Become a Thing of the Past and Debra Moorhead’s 16 Aspects I Appreciate about People Who Disagree with Me.

Thanks to Spooky Action and The Organic Leadership Blog for including my post on why diversity training doesn’t work!
