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 a wake-up call for HR, when to call in the coach, the evolution of leadership development, and measuring the ROI of leadership development.

From China Gorman: Deloitte’s HR Wake Up Call

“Deloitte recently released its 2015 Global Human Capital Trends report, their annual comprehensive study of HR, leadership, and talent challenges compiled using data from surveys and interviews taken by 3,300+ HR and business leaders in 106 countries around the world. The report identifies 10 major trends that emerged from the most current research, and cites the capability gap (measuring the distance between the importance of an issue and organizations’ readiness to address it) associated with each, as well as practical ideas for how to help organizations combat theses challenges. Ranked by importance, the top ten talent challenges reported for 2015 are: culture and engagement, leadership, learning and development, reinventing HR, workforce on demand, performance management, HR and people analytics, simplification of work, machines as talent, and people data everywhere.”

From Donna Howes: When to Call in the Coach: Working Together to Add Value

“These findings support the 2013 International Coaching Federation (ICF) Organizational Coaching Study which identified a rising trend towards utilizing coaching as an effective response to leadership development, succession planning, organizational transformation and ‘executive burn-out’. In a nutshell, coaching creates awareness that translates to workplaces becoming more effective at the individual, team and organizational levels.”

From Anne McKee: Learning, Talent, and Leadership Development: Evolution or Revolution?

“Learning and talent development are undergoing a transformation in organizations today.”

From Darleen DeRosa: Measuring the ROI of Leadership Development

“Demonstrating the connection between participating in training and development initiatives and an improvement in leader behavior or department performance requires creative information gathering by HR or talent managers, but it’s not impossible.”
