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 talent analytics, leadership development to make leaders fit for purpose, succession squads and leadership development, and why managers are bad at leadership development.
