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 sponsorship for leadership development, aligning talent strategies with business goals, critical competencies for leadership in the future, and your professional development plan for the year.

From Kirsten Frasch: Leadership Development Needs Sponsorship At Top

“Now, the latest global study on this issue by Los Angeles-based Korn Ferry suggests the inherent problems with leadership development have less to do with who’s taking responsibility and more to do with who’s sponsoring the effort.”

From Jennifer Pellet: Building Leaders Who Build the Future: Aligning Talent Strategies with Business Goals

“We hear it again and again: People are a company’s most important asset. Even the most brilliant, well-thought out competitive strategy simply won’t come off without the right people in the right places to make it happen.”

From Tanmay Vora: 12 Critical Competencies For Leadership in the Future

“The rate of change in the business world today is greater than our ability to respond. In a world that is often described as VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and ambiguous), there are major tectonic shifts that demand a new mindset of leadership. First, let us look at these shifts.”

From Dorie Clark: Plan Your Professional Development for the Year

“But professional development – improving yourself at work beyond meeting your specific performance goals – is too often left to the rote box-checking of annual performance reviews. To successfully move to the next level, we need to ask ourselves: How can I ensure I’m more valuable at the end of the year than I was at the beginning?”
