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 how leadership development is stuck in the Dark Ages,  improving leadership development, acquiring a new sense of self, and doing the basics well.

From Jane Sparrow: The way we develop leaders is stuck in the dark ages

“Today’s bosses need better help to deal with new technologies, working practices and generational shift.”

From Harvey Schachter: How to improve your the way you develop leadership

“The best form of leadership development is taking a risk on the protégé, says consultant Julie Winkle Giulioni.”

From Benjamin Kessler: Today’s Leaders Require a New Sense of Self

“What career transformation really means in a world with few if any guarantees.”

From Raffaella Sadun: Google’s Secret Formula for Management? Doing the Basics Well

“Google has opened its trove of management processes to one and all, for free. It might not feel that surprising — after all, Google has created plenty of free tools for the world to use, from internet search to email. Management tools may not seem that different. And it also follows Google’s many years of work in people analytics. But, in fact, there is something surprising in the details of what Google revealed. Turns out a lot of its management tools focus on some pretty basic stuff, like how to run meetings, have conversations, and set goals.”
