Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 1/4/19

January 4, 2019 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 about the most important skills for leaders, leadership development when you don’t have time, opportunity mobility, and why executives don’t listen well.

From Marcel Schwantes: The Quickest Way to Great Leadership Won’t Happen Without Improving These 3 People Skills

“We are promoting individual contributors into leadership roles who don’t have the capacity to lead.”

See my comments on this post at “Picking Winners.

From David Dye: How to Develop People When You Don’t Have Time

“You can’t afford not to develop people – but it doesn’t require hours.”

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: From Career Mobility to Opportunity Mobility

“Today, however, rather than being a helpful feature within the talent management landscape, issues related to career mobility frequently immobilize organizations and undermine optimal engagement and results. Nearly three out of four Americans report being less than satisfied with the career development they receive.”

From Anne Perschel: Why Executives Don’t Listen Well

“In theory we love curiosity and questions, but we routinely elevate people who have (or at least appear to have) the answers.”

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