Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 12/4/14

December 4, 2015 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 improving learning in leadership development, keeping your leadership development plans current, a leadership development accelerator, and letting people fail.

From Stephen J. Gill: Industry Report: Too Much Training; Not Enough Learning

“In any case, assuming that the findings, in general, describe the state of the industry in 2015, it is disappointing to see the continuing substantial investment in ‘push’ training. ‘Instructor-led classroom only’ is still reported to be the primary method of employee learning and development.”

From Melany Gallant: Don’t Let Your Development Plans Get Dusty: A Q&A with DDI’s Dave Fisher

“The most important employees for an organization to develop are those that are currently meeting or exceeding performance expectations. It’s about helping successful people become even more successful in current and future roles. It follows then that this kind of employee development results in positive business outcomes. Why, then, do so many development plans sit around getting dusty rather than getting put into action?”

From Dale Buss: Daimler CEO Dieter Zetsche Launches Leadership Accelerator to Keep Company On Top

“Dieter Zetsche has been on the fast track to success as CEO of Daimler, which has been continually scrapping with BMW and Audi for the pole position among global sellers of luxury automobiles.”

From Jim Moffatt: Helping People Learn By Letting Them Fail Is Essential

“I recently was asked by a colleague what I wish I had done differently as a parent. I gave an answer that was so boring that I can’t remember it today. But then another colleague, overhearing the question, said something that instantly resonated with me: ‘I wish I had let my kids fail more.'”
