Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 11/21/14

November 21, 2014 by Wally Bock

Leadership development may be the most important thing any company does. That’s why, every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover leadership development to find the very best leadership development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to posts about leapfrog succession, how to get management experience when you’re not a manager, succession planning at Steelcase, and the latest Aon Hewitt list of best companies for leadership development.

From Roselinde Torres, Gerry Hansell, Kaye Foster, and David Baron: Leapfrog Succession: A New Trend in Appointing CEOs?

“Corporate boards of directors are increasingly reaching down below the second layer of management to name new chief executive officers. By accelerating the promotion of these executives, boards hope that the new CEOs’ ability to understand and act upon signals in today’s unpredictable environment will more than offset their relative inexperience.”

From Dan McCarthy: How to Get Management Experience When You’re not a Manager

“It’s hard to land a management position when you don’t have the title ‘manager’ on your resume, or be able to provide specific examples of your management experience. So what’s an aspiring manager to do without holding formal management positions? Plenty! If you are interested in becoming a manager, then here are 5 ways to get management experience without being a manager:”

From Noel Tichy: Getting succession planning right at Steelcase

“This post is an excerpt from ‘Succession: Mastering the Make-Or-Break Process of Leadership Transition,’ by Noel Tichy, in agreement with Portfolio, an imprint of Penguin Random House.”

From Mark McGraw: Who’s Leading the Way?

“Identifying what makes for a great leader isn’t an exact science. But, each year since 2001, Aon Hewitt has done its best to pinpoint the traits shared by the best business leaders—and the companies that excel in cultivating them. The Lincolnshire, Ill.-based consultancy recently unveiled its 2014 Global Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders list, a group of 25 organizations selected and ranked by a panel of independent judges, including experts from Wharton School of Business, the Indian School of Business, PUC Minas and Ivey School of Business.”
