That's the theme of T+D's November issue.
The free cover story (requires registration) is on Robert E. Knowling Jr., former head of Covad and now CEO of the NYC Leadership Academy, which is using best practices from businesses and the military to turn school principals into change agents.
There are also feature articles on outsourcing, consulting, and mobile tools; a survey on blended learning; a review of The Hidden Power of Social Networks: Understanding How Work Really Gets Done in Organizations; a column on managing difficult participants, and more.
My Intelligence column this month is entitled The Future of Meetings and discusses some cool tools under development as well as some available right now.
A lot of these articles are available free if you register or are an ASTD member. Check out T+D November!
