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 AI, leadership development and training as investments, and evolving tech for leadership development.

From Forbes: How AI Will Groom A New Breed of ‘Super Managers’

“A growing number of AI applications, however, promise to drastically reduce business leaders’ workloads by taking over many of those low-value and repetitive tasks. By 2021, this shift will generate an estimated $2.9 billion in business value and save 6.2 billion hours of worker productivity, according to Gartner. The upshot: Managers will have more time to perform more valuable work. At the same time, they will be expected to move faster, fueled by data-driven insights for strategic decision making, and lead more effectively with the aid of AI-powered tools that can streamline productivity.”

The post above inspired my post, “Leadership Development and Artificial Intelligence.

From Craig Dearden-Phillips: Wise up – leadership development is an investment

“Looking back, I did this because I viewed the programme as a cost to my organisation rather than an investment in its future success. And even with my bursary safely in hand, I was still, up to that very conversation, fretfully listing all the ‘worthwhile’ things that my remaining outlay might achieve for our mission.”

From Ron Carucci: When Companies Should Invest in Training Their Employees — and When They Shouldn’t

“According to one industry report, U.S. companies spent over $90 billion dollars on training and development activities in 2017, a year-over-year increase of 32.5 %. While many experts emphasize the importance and benefits of employee development — a more competitive workforce, increased employee retention, and higher employee engagement — critics point to a painful lack of results from these investments. Ultimately, there is truth in both perspectives. Training is useful at times but often fails, especially when it is used to address problems that it can’t actually solve.”

From Kyle Freedman and Tierra Upshaw: Evolving Tech for 21st Century Leadership Development

“Take a look at a typical corporate workplace in 2018 and what do you see? Lots of open office space with trendy coffee machines and giant Jenga boards for decompressing? Check. Brightly painted walls accented by motivational posters and company-branded swag? Check. Corner offices filled with company leaders who are counting their days toward retirement? Check. Young professionals eyeing those same offices for their next opportunities, while at the same time needing the knowledge and skills to get there? Check and check!”

Leadership Development and Artificial Intelligence

December 12, 2018 by Wally Bock

Leadership development will be transformed by artificial intelligence (AI), just like every other area of business. Don’t think about this starting with technology. Instead, start from the impact that artificial intelligence can have on the day-to-day work of a manager. A great article in Forbes, titled, “How AI Will Groom A New Breed Of “Super […]

Leadership development and mistakes

December 5, 2018 by Wally Bock

Leadership development isn’t a flawless rise to the top of the chart. Developing leaders must often learn the hard way. Consider this. “I thought back to one of my own early-career, well-intended, clumsy moves. I was an inexperienced HR manager attending a meeting on employee engagement where I told a room full of VPs, all […]

Leadership Development is a Leadership Function

November 28, 2018 by Wally Bock

Leadership development programs are not all there is to good leadership development. When most people think of leadership development at all, they think of a formal program. 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 Is […]

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 and Leadership Work

November 14, 2018 by Wally Bock

Leadership development is failing too many people. I know far too many leaders who dread the thought of going to work every morning. Some of them are in bad situations, but many of them dread the day because they dread the work. In most companies moving into management is your only option if you want […]
