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 employee learning, the changing nature of leadership, employee recognition, and the art or science of managing talent.

From Stephen J. Gill: Pull, Don’t Push, Employee Learning

“As the digital revolution continues to fuel the faster rate of change, transforming all aspects of business, from supply chain management to communication, the highest-performing corporations are abandoning traditional ‘push’ training for the ‘pull’ learning model.”

From McKinsey & Company: Heidrick & Struggles on the changing nature of leadership

“Tracy Wolstencroft, CEO of the global executive-search firm, explains the importance of authentic leadership, listening, and getting comfortable with being uncomfortable.”

From China Gorman: The Employee Recognition Landscape is Changing

“The fifth research report in an annual partnership between SHRM and Globoforce was published this week. And, interestingly, there is a surprise. Namely, that retention/turnover is the top challenge reported by nearly 1,000 SHRM members. This is a surprise top challenge compared to the last 2 years – and it makes sense. With the economy and hiring improving, businesses are wise to become concerned that the ‘grass is greener’ syndrome may take hold of their very best employees. The employees who are super marketable as job opening grow.”

From Pauline Nolte: Managing Talent – An Art or Science?

“There’s no denying it, we can’t live without technology. i-this, e-that—technology is tightly woven into the fabric of our everyday lives. And let’s face it, who wants to go back to the days of snail mail, memos, and faxes? But what role should technology play in managing talent?”
