Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 9/25/15

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 psychometrics in leadership development, getting more from your HIPO program, how multinationals can improve their leadership development, and the contributions of “special ones.”

From Peter Crush: The evolution of psychometrics in the search for talent

“Psychometrics tools have long been associated with senior hires, but new research by Network HR suggests that organisations are spreading their use far wider than this.”

From Rose Mueller-Hanson, Marlene Dunne and Mark Powell: High-Potential Employees: 3 Ways to Get More From Your HIPO Program

“It’s certainly worth investing the time and the money, but only in the right people and in the right way.”

From Sabine Vollmer: How multinationals can improve their leadership development

“Too many inconsistencies (according to 40% of respondents) or too much corporate control (13%) doom leadership development initiatives in multinationals, as do a lack of skills and experience within HR to operate globally (27%), and poor understanding of cultural differences at the design stage (9%) and implementation stage (11%) of global leadership development programmes.”

From Jon Ingham: Ram Charan’s 2% people drive 98% impact

“One of the things I talked about in the People Management webinar was the increasing focus on small numbers of talent (eg Halogen’s survey showed a clear focus on senior managers and leaders) and whether this is always valid. I think workforce segmentation is a very appropriate activity, most of the time, and that most organisations do have ‘special ones’ but I worry that we overemphasise the variances in their contributions.”
