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 a pointer to a post. on whether Millennial leadership will change the way we work, Training is an important part of leadership development, so there are pointers to three posts on training: the missing half of training, improving teamwork, and how to develop a better training strategy.

From Rich Wellins and Rebecca Ray: Will Millennial Leadership Change the Way We Work?

“The Conference Board published findings of this research in a report, Divergent Views/Common Ground: The Leadership Perspectives of C-Suite Executives and Millennial Leaders. Many of the findings refute the conventional wisdom and sometimes-negative stereotypes about Millennials.”

From Harold Jarche: the missing half of training

“The training industry is based on models that were developed for the military. The Systems Approach to Training includes the ADDIE [analysis, design, development, implementation, evaluation] model, with variations used throughout industry. Robert Gagne’s Nine Events of Instruction inform much of instructional design. Gagne’s early work was in military training. Other models were developed in the second half of the 20th century but they mostly remained in line with their military roots. One model for instructional design that I promote is Cathy Moore’s Action Mapping. It’s a welcome change, but is focused on individual training. In the military there is much more training than individual, skill & knowledge-focused, course work. There is also ‘collective training’”

From Iulia Alina Cioca: Learning how to work better together: when does teamwork training work?

“training team members to work together improves their teamwork behaviors and the team’s performance,”

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: Want A Better Training Strategy? Ask Your Customers.

“Establishing training and learning priorities is frequently treated as an art. But recent research from Human Capital Management illuminates the science behind this essential leadership function – and the most valuable data comes from customers, both internal and external. In Best Practice: Microlearning Helps Employees Re-Learn Concepts Quickly, the authors report that best-in-class companies are 43% more likely than all others to use customer feedback to determine employee learning needs and priorities. So what can we do to find the intersection of art and science?”
