12/6/12: Top Talent Development Posts this Week

December 6, 2012 by Wally Bock

Every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover talent development to find the very best talent development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to pieces about creating a leadership development program, how talent development can help your company, prosthetic environments, and maximum ROI on leadership development training.

From Bud Haney: Create a Leadership Development Program in 5 Steps

“Many people try to define leadership in broad terms, but part of success is recognizing that every organization requires a different style of leadership. To jumpstart your own organization’s talent pipeline, it’s important to create an internal leadership development program.”

From Jeremy Wilcomb: How an employee training and development program can help your company

“Smart Business spoke with Wilcomb about some best practices to follow when implementing an employee training and development program.”

From Aubrey Daniels: Prosthetic Environments: Optimizing the Talent Around Us

“The father’s idea is a brilliant application of Lindsay’s conceptualization of helping people.  Instead of trying to eliminate things that are, at best, difficult to eliminate, place the person in an environment where those skills are not only useful, but highly valued.”

From David Witt: Leadership Development Training—3 tips for maximum ROI

“Back in 2005, one of our clients, American Express, wanted to measure the impact of Situational Leadership II training that they had rolled out in their organization.  The program was delivered via three venues—traditional classroom with people attending in person; completely virtual with people working through self-paced modules; and a third ‘blended approach’ that combined aspects of both.”
