Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 2/17/17

February 17, 2017 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 leadership development on the front lines, two posts on succession, and how to identify future leaders of your company.

From Susan Mazza: 5 Ideas to Help You Cultivate Leadership

“The ultimate sign of an effective leader is that they are cultivating leadership in others. Sometimes this happens naturally. Yet, more often than not, if you want to cultivate leadership, you need to be intentional.”

From Branigan Robertson and Sean Reis: What Would Happen If Your CEO Died?

“Human resource professionals have a complicated job: payroll, discipline, morale, harassment, terminations, etc. An HR professional who doesn’t stay proactive on these issues could expose their company to liability. But no one seems to talk about a massive issue that any company could face at any time – what should HR do when an employee dies? Or better yet, what can HR do in advance to minimize the impact of a key employee suddenly passing away?”

From BrightMove: Where Does Your Company Stand with Succession?

“A short list for the C-Suite is not the only focus of a corporate succession plan. As the average tenure of skilled talent drops to just over four years, HR needs an overall frame to approach leadership training and workforce succession.”

From Marcel Schwantes: 12 Ways to Identify the Future Leaders of Your Company Right Now

“You don’t have to have a big HR budget, or even an HR team, to make this happen.”
