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 generation changing the future of work, a leadership development case study, a new way of selecting people for leadership development, and the four types of coaches every leader needs.

From Stephanie Neal and Rich Wellins: The Surprising Generation That’s Changing the Future of Work

“With this in mind we took a closer look at Gen X leaders and how they differ from other generations as part of our sixth Global Leadership Forecast study. This year’s study involved over 25,000 leaders spanning 54 countries and 26 major industry sectors. Sixty-one percent of leaders involved in the study were, in fact, Gen Xers. Their responses, along with those from their younger and older colleagues, revealed that there are four key ways this generation of leaders stand out.”

From Lynne Graham: Case study – A unique insight in leadership development

“To achieve this goal there is a comprehensive plan of activities with one of the most ambitious being to create a coaching culture through developing leaders, at every organisational level, to become competent coaches. Lynne Graham designed and has delivered a Coaching Skills programme (based on the application of the GROW model) to over 100 leaders over the past 2 years.

An evaluation of the impact of the programme after the first year revealed an unexpected and welcome insight. Leaders reported that, as well as their confidence in coaching improving, they felt that through using coaching skills, they were better able to deal with the pressures of work. It was this anecdotal insight that prompted the study into the impact of becoming a coach on leaders’ resilience or mental toughness.”

From George Brooks: Select Leaders Based on How They Think, Not What They Know

“For HR, the solution to finding the right leaders may lie in a change of criteria by focusing on mindset.”

From Ryan Heinl: The 4 Types of Coaches Every Leader Needs

“we’ve entered a new era of business in which the rapid pace of change requires people at all levels of the organization to constantly learn new skills, change their perspectives, and push themselves to higher levels of performance”
