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 why you should invest in leadership development, the development of emotional intelligence, creating a coaching culture, and why improving leadership development is an organizational imperative.

From China Gorman: Improve Corporate Performance: Invest in Leadership/Talent Development

“With organizations spending an estimated $40 Billion (yes, Billion!) worldwide on leadership and talent development, these findings may enable leaders all over the world to re-orient their priorities, investmemts and behavior on talent/leadership development and gain the critical involvement and support with all the members of the C-suite.”

From Andrea Ovans: How Emotional Intelligence Became a Key Leadership Skill

“Anyone trying to come up to speed on emotional intelligence would have a pretty easy time of it since the concept is remarkably recent, and its application to business newer still. The term was coined in 1990 in a research paper by two psychology professors, John D. Mayer of UNH and Peter Salovey of Yale.”

From Donna Howes: Coaching Culture Engages Better Performance

“The key then is to inspire even more organizations to embed coaching into their DNA. The challenge and the opportunity is to help organizations build a coaching culture which supports individuals to confidently pursue new ideas and alternative solutions with greater resilience—particularly in the face of growing complexity and uncertainty—through creative and thought-provoking conversations.”

From Edwin Mouriño-Ruiz: Why Improving Leadership Development Is an Organizational Imperative

“To be sure, many books have been written on leadership, and billions of dollars have been spent on leadership development programs. Yet, despite these major investments in leadership development, the majority of people trust a stranger more than their boss. Why?”

Wally Bock is a coach, a writer and President of Three Star Leadership.
