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 succession planning, hiring for fit, getting the most from a leadership coach, and cross-functional training.

From Liam Butler: Why an HCM system is the perfect platform for succession planning

“The 15th annual study of CEOs, governance and success conducted by Strategy& estimated that companies that saw forced successions would have generated, on average, an estimated US$112bn more in market value in the year before and the year after their turnover, if their CEO succession had been the result of planning.”

From Bruce Court: How 3 Organizations Are Hiring for Fit

“Companies have become increasingly aware that their processes for making hiring or promotion decisions are out of focus. They rely too heavily on technical skills at the expense of other factors that predict whether a candidate will be a success in the job. For example, too little attention is paid to whether the candidate will be a good fit with the work environment.”

From Tammy Perkins 5 Tips to Getting the Most From a Leadership Coach

“Working with an executive coach can have a huge payoff for leaders as they develop, improve their skills and stretch in new areas. Like anything in life, coaching is as much about what you give as what you get back.”

From Rick Lepsinger: Are Your Cross Functional Team Training Programs Working?

“However, as many companies have discovered, cross functional teams have more than their fair share of challenges as well. The challenges that keep cross functional teams from working well generally come in two types—structural obstacles and skill limitations.”
