Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 5/5/16

May 6, 2016 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 better mentoring, paradigm shifts in leadership development, leadership development and apprenticeship, and thirty-three definitions of leadership.

From Warren Strugatch: 5 Tips for Better Mentoring

“Effective mentoring is part art, part science—and you get better at it with experience.”

From Vikram Bhalla: Beyond 70:20:10 rule: 3 paradigm shifts needed to fix development

“Often, the 70:20:10 rule camouflages the true problem with leadership development, which is that it is disconnected from the actual work leaders do every day. Really good HR teams start with a competency framework and then decide on the development programmes that will help address the elements of that framework as employees go through their careers. In line with the 70:20:10 rule, they make sure to use a mix of learning approaches like coaching, on-the-job training, classroom instruction, and e-learning. But this course of action is effective only to a point. There are much better ways to get real results.”

From ATD: Developing ready leaders for the Front Line

“An apprentice program’s response to the need for capable frontline leadership generates an innovative development process.”

From Brittney Helmrich: 33 Ways to Define Leadership

“So how do you define leadership? Business News Daily asked business owners, managers and experts to explain what leadership means to them. Here are 33 different ways to define leadership.”
