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 hiring leadership development talent, data versus discretion in hiring, leadership development and inborn traits, and developing female leaders.

From Dee Ann Turner: Six Steps to Hiring Exceptional Talent

“The best business leaders have a keen sense of purpose that drives their work. Ideally, they also have superior products and services that support that purpose. But noble purpose and brilliant products won’t get you far if you don’t have the right people to deliver them. In other words, our who matters even more than our what and our why.”

From Maura C. Ciccarelli: Data vs. Discretion in Hiring

“When it comes to relying on either hiring managers’ judgement or pre-hiring assessments in making hiring decisions, new research gives a slight edge to the assessments. But experts say nothing can replace a collaborative relationship between recruiters and hiring managers.”

From Renee Adams: Tall order: Are CEOs born with leadership traits?

“Imagine you are on a board and have to appoint a high-achieving new chief executive officer. What constitutes the perfect candidate – excellent cognitive and non-cognitive skills, a strong education … and someone who is tall?”

From Bravetta Hassell: Are You Developing Female Leaders?

“You should be. Creating a pipeline of gender-diverse leaders can be critical to organizational performance.”
