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 better talent pipeline, questions to ask about developing future leaders, personalized learning, and becoming a “CEO Academy.”

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: 4 Mindsets Needed for a Better Talent Pipeline

“As leaders face the most volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous business conditions ever, one thing is clear: Talent is an organization’s most powerful and sustainable competitive advantage.”

This article inspired the comments in my post, “Leadership development: Talent isn’t enough.

From Justin Bell: Three Questions To Ask Yourself When Developing And Hiring Future Leaders

“Nothing we do as leaders will have more impact on the future success of our organizations than developing future leaders. The caliber of individuals hired and the focus placed on their development as leaders are critical to any company’s ability to grow, innovate and compete.”

From Teala Wilson: How Personalized Learning Boosts Employee Performance

“As people work and collaborate in new ways, they need learning environments that are engaging, accessible, impactful, scalable and relevant. That’s why it’s critical that your organization continues to invest in your people with personalized learning to help them upskill in their roles over time. Personalized learning is employee-centric while staying aligned to the goals and needs of the organization.”

From Clarke Murphy: 7 steps to becoming a ‘CEO Academy

“But while most companies do a good job of developing CEO candidates, a handful do a truly amazing job of it, producing a disproportionately high number of CEOs relative to their peers. Among the companies in the S&P 1500, General Electric produces nearly 25 times the average. IBM produces nearly 20 times more. Procter & Gamble, Honeywell International, HP, General Motors and United Technologies all produce at least 10 times more than average.”
