Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 9/23/16

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 creating a culture that supports feedback, leadership development results, leadership development failures, and what successful leadership development looks like.

From Rick Lepsinger: Creating a Culture That Supports Giving and Receiving Feedback

“However, it takes more than software or a mandate from senior executives to ensure managers are able to transition from annual performance reviews to regularly giving and receiving feedback. It takes a shift from a paternalistic cultural to one where managers take responsibility for having straightforward and sometimes difficult conversations with direct reports. In some cases, this can be a significant shift.”

From Bruce Watt: Your Program Needs More Podium Results

“I’ve noticed some interesting parallels with the efficacy of how companies develop leadership excellence. Most large multinational companies have been investing for more than a decade in developing a bench of leaders that are better prepared to execute the company strategy. These companies often have well-established high potential identification and development programs, a department of knowledgeable subject-matter experts in leadership development, and a governance process for reviewing leadership talent. In fact, everything seems in place except one critical factor—the outputs: a sufficient pool of leaders that are ready to be deployed to execute the business strategy.”

From Matt Paese: We Must Address the Leadership Strategy Mortality Rate

“Want to know why so many leadership development strategies don’t deliver despite significant time and resource investments up front? It’s alarmingly simple — lack of focus.”

From L&D: What a successful leadership development program looks like

“Leadership development is absolutely critical in this disruptive and digital world, according to Nigel Paine, leadership thought leader and expert on dealing with technology, innovation and change in L&D.”
