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 and the work, agile leadership development, finding time to learn, and top leadership training mistakes and how to fix them.

From Mary Jo Asmus: Doing less and being more

“If you’re striving to work your way up the corporate ladder and you currently love what you do – beware! The more responsibility and people you take on into your employ, the less you should be ‘doing’ the daily work. In fact, it’s not a bad idea to consider whether ‘doing less’ is something that you really want in your career.”

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: An Agile Approach to Development Planning

“But, you know what’s also complex and unpredictable? The employment landscape. Today’s jobs may be automated tomorrow. That role you’ve been working toward for years may evaporate. And positions we can’t even imagine have yet to be invented.”

From Dan Pontefract: The No. 1 Reason Employees Say They’ve Stopped Learning Is Because They Don’t Have Time

“In today’s organization, speed has become a weapon against thoughtfulness and an employee’s self-development plan.”

From Rita O’Donnell: The top 10 training mistakes employers make — and how to avoid them

“Training mistakes can do more than translate incorrect information; they can de-motivate staff, set employees up for failure and even put them at risk.”

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. We need people to assume a leadership role and influence others, even if they don’t have a leadership job. We do most of our work in teams. Most leaders are […]

Leadership development programs help leaders master many skills. Experts differ on which ones are most important. Ron Ashkenas and Brook Manville think there are six fundamental skills.

Leadership development and a personal journal

October 17, 2018 by Wally Bock

Leadership development is an intense personal experience. Leadership happens in public. But the most important part of leadership development happens in private. The best leaders use their time alone to reflect on their experience on the job and in the classroom. Great leaders use their time alone to motivate themselves so they can handle the […]
