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 effective learning implementations, 50 ways to leverage learning, the need for more global leadership development, and figuring out whether you’re losing at leadership development.

From John Slater: NAVIGATE Effective Learning Implementations: Eight Key Strategies to Maximize Impact

“Every year, organizations spend millions of dollars on soft skills training. However, when learners try to put their new skills to use without the benefit of structure or reinforcement from their manager, actual behavior change and application of skills are typically only fractionally effective.”

From Stephen J. Gill: 50 Ways to Lever Learning

“In a learning culture, formal training is just one of many methods used to facilitate employee learning. In a learning culture, we start with the performance goal and then select the mix of methods that will help employees acquire and retain the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and beliefs they need in order to achieve those goals. This is a list of 50 of those methods. The first 25 are primarily instructor-directed; the second 25 are primarily learner-directed.”

From Chief Learning Officer: More Global Leadership Development, Please

“The world is global, and increasingly so are most companies. Leaders require a special kind of development to run them effectively, one that starts early and touches more than high potentials.”

From Mark McGraw: Are You Losing at Leadership Development?

“Recent research finds organizations are investing time and money in development, but aren’t getting the desired results. Why aren’t more companies producing quality leaders, and what can HR do about it?”
