January 22, 2016 by Wally Bock

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 extending leadership development influence out into the workplace, developing your people, learning together and hot HR and leadership development topics.

From Charles Jennings: Workplace Performance: From Courses to Campaigns : using the 70:20:10 approach

“One of the major strategic objectives for many HR and L&D departments in 2016 and beyond will be to extend their focus and services beyond courses and out into the workplace.”

From Karin Hurt: A Deeper Dive into Developing Your People

“When I ask managers where they regret not spending enough time, unequivocally, the number one answer is ‘Not spending enough time developing my people.’ There never seems to be enough time, or resources, or support from above, or fill in your favorite blank here _______. And yet when I ask managers to identify one thing they KNOW would improve their results, you guessed it… the same answer, ‘If only I had more time to develop my people.’ Perhaps you’ve felt that way. Trust your instinct.”

From Jane E. Dutton and Emily Heaphy: We Learn More When We Learn Together

“We rarely grow alone. In fact, some psychologists have made a compelling case that we only grow in connection with others. However, we don’t need to learn with others in formal training or development programs: we can architect our own opportunities to gain insight, knowledge, and skills that move us on an upward trajectory. We can have more control over our learning at work if we make building high-quality connections a priority.”

From Tacy Byham: 10 Hot Leadership Topics for 2016

“As we move into a new year, we asked ourselves—what new trends are emerging in leadership and HR in 2016, and what do we need to know about them?”
