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 leadership development and the work, agile leadership development, finding time to learn, and top leadership training mistakes and how to fix them.

From Mary Jo Asmus: Doing less and being more

“If you’re striving to work your way up the corporate ladder and you currently love what you do – beware! The more responsibility and people you take on into your employ, the less you should be ‘doing’ the daily work. In fact, it’s not a bad idea to consider whether ‘doing less’ is something that you really want in your career.”

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: An Agile Approach to Development Planning

“But, you know what’s also complex and unpredictable? The employment landscape. Today’s jobs may be automated tomorrow. That role you’ve been working toward for years may evaporate. And positions we can’t even imagine have yet to be invented.”

From Dan Pontefract: The No. 1 Reason Employees Say They’ve Stopped Learning Is Because They Don’t Have Time

“In today’s organization, speed has become a weapon against thoughtfulness and an employee’s self-development plan.”

From Rita O’Donnell: The top 10 training mistakes employers make — and how to avoid them

“Training mistakes can do more than translate incorrect information; they can de-motivate staff, set employees up for failure and even put them at risk.”
