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 leadership development and learning like a gamer, letting go during succession, customizing leadership development, and Learning Technologies 2016.

From Harold Jarche: learn like a gamer

“Learning is the new literacy. Personal computers are just one example. We buy new ones every few years. Operating systems change. Programs change, get replaced, or become obsolete. But we often continue with the same habits until something goes wrong. Few us do the equivalent of ‘looking under the hood’. We learn enough to get our work done, but often do not take time to understand the underlying systems and logic.”

From Natalie Michael: Succession Transitions: The Politics of Letting Go

“During a succession transition the departing executive needs to let go of control and set their successor up for success. Sometimes this goes well and sometimes it does not.”

From Gianpiero Petriglieri: How to Really Customize Leadership Development

“The important question executives and educators ought to discuss, as I see it, is not whether a learning initiative will be customized — but how.”

From Martin Couzins: Learning Technologies 2016: Five ways to improve L&D

“’If you could start a new L&D function from scratch, with all the tools available to you now, what would you do?’ That was the question posed by Donald Taylor, chairman of the Learning Technologies 2016. The conference then provided many ideas for L&D professionals looking to answer that question.”
