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 why emerging leaders stop emerging, the importance of re-skilling the workforce, measuring the impact of leadership development, and Peter Senge on leadership development.

From Karin Hurt: The Surprising Reason Emerging Leaders Stop Emerging

“I met a fellow keynote speaker at a conference where we both presenting. She was a seasoned entrepreneur who had built a successful business from scratch, so what she had to share with me was surprising.”

See my comments on some of the leadership development implications of this post.

From Patrick Gorman: Tata Consultancy Services’ Surya Kant On The Importance Of Re-skilling The Workforce

“Tata Consultancy Services president, North America, UK and Europe Surya Kant not only plays a key role in expanding the company’s range of technology and service offerings in its biggest markets, but he’s also dedicated to supporting U.S. STEM education and career initiatives.”

From David Witt: 3 Tips for Measuring the Impact of Leadership Training

“Does training really work?”

From Tanmay Vora: Peter Senge on Developing Leaders

“Real leadership happens when we are aware of our gifts (given to us), when we hone those gifts in the spirit of serving others, when we find whitespaces (gap between our vision and the current reality) and put our gifts to good use in filling up those gaps. Real leadership happens irrespective of external validations and titles. In fact, titles and external validations are only the by-products of the pursuit.”

The program offers training, evaluates aspiring leaders, and helps with development plans. But you can have all those things and not have good leadership development.

Leadership Development and Coaching

November 21, 2018 by Wally Bock

I began my business career fifty years ago. Back then, coaching wasn’t a common part of anyone’s career development. Businesspeople thought coaching was an admission you needed help and didn’t have “the right stuff.” Things are different today. Today we know coaching can make a big difference in a manager’s performance and career. How big? […]

Leadership development for two kinds of leadership

November 7, 2018 by Wally Bock

Leadership development programs develop people to lead others. Some of those leaders have a “leadership position.” But in the knowledge economy we need more leadership.
