Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 3/11/16

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 succession planning, the leadership development race for client, managing talent in the digital age, and 3M announces new leadership development program.

From Darleen DeRosa: Succession Planning When Your Company Is In Crisis Mode

“While it’s standard practice to have a plan for replacing the CEO, it’s less typical to have strong leaders lined up to fill other key roles when the need arises.”

From China Gorman: Racing For Talent

“Sometimes research results are organized in complex and hard to consume ways. We’ve all seen those reports, academic treatises and white papers. And then, all too rarely, there are research results that are organized and easily consumable. Here’s one of the good ones: Randstad Sourceright’s 2016 Talent Trends Report. Not only is the information easily accessed, it has a catchy organizing principle: Formula One racing. I know, it seems a bit of a stretch, but it actually works quite well – and Randstad has been the official partner of the Williams Martini Racing Team since 2006. So there’s that.”

From Susan Lund, James Manyika, and Kelsey Robinson: Managing talent in a digital age

“Online labor platforms make it easier to find—and harder to retain—talented people. They give companies a real opportunity to transform the way they recruit, develop, and engage their employees.”

From 3M: 3M Announces New Leadership Development Program

“The constantly innovating 3M is breaking ground again with its new global leadership development platform, consisting of four programs including Catalyst, which will further strengthen the company, its leaders and the communities in which they reside.”
