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 leadership development mindset, leadership development and e-learning, the ROI of training, and constructing a leadership development program.

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: Deconstructing the Development Mindset

“Since Peter Senge coined the expression ‘learning organization’ more than two decades ago, businesses around the world have aspired to leverage learning toward agility, transformation and long-term success. And most leaders will admit that they still struggle to make this dream a reality. But what if we reframe the conversation? What if we shift the focus from the organization to the individual?”

From Rick Lepsinger: Why Aren’t My Employees Benefiting from E-Learning?

“E-learning, or learning resources delivered using electronic media (video, internet, etc.), can be a powerful tool for helping your business scale its learning initiatives. Some of the benefits of e-learning include the reduced cost of training, increased flexibility and access, reduced time for training, and improved employee engagement.”

From David Creelman: A Better Way to Approach the ROI of Training

“Most professionals in learning and development don’t have the luxury that Kerr had to push back against the value of calculating an ROI. Luckily, there is another approach that falls outside of Kirkpatrick’s model. Peter Navin, SVP of Employee Experience for healthcare provider Grand Rounds Inc. is a big fan of analytics. He leans towards measuring the overall ROI of a business initiative, not training in isolation. For example, opening an operation in a new location involves training as well as many other factors. If the new operation has a positive ROI, then that’s enough to assure the company that training is probably on track.”

Thanks to Susan Mazza for pointing me to this post.

From Chris Cebollero: Four Tips For Constructing A Leadership Development Program

“According to Gallup, over 50% of managers feel disconnected from both their responsibilities and their organization’s mission. Moreover, 55% of company leaders are looking for outside opportunities. If we couple this with the fact that much of the workforce is either disengaged or actively disengaged in meeting company’s strategic goals, it is not a big surprise why so many organizations are having challenges reaching their ultimate success.”
