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 on turning insights into execution, metrics for evaluating your leadership development program, key influencing skills for leaders, and what you should ask about your leadership development training.

From Elizabeth Doty: Four Secrets for Turning Insight into Execution

“A well-designed leadership off-site is a great place to generate the big ideas that can take your business to the next level. You bring in a speaker, have an in-depth discussion, walk through an analysis, and suddenly, light bulbs go off. People see what they’ve been missing or what has been holding them back.”

From Ian Cook: You Need Analytics to Know If Your L&D Program Is Making A Difference

“Despite the clear positive effects of learning, I’ve repeatedly heard from L&D leaders that they lack insights into whether what they do impacts overall business goals.”

From Darleen DeRosa: The 4 Influencing Skills That Your Leaders Need To Have

“The modern-day workplace often requires that leaders gain consensus across organizational boundaries, acquiring support from those who have no reporting relationship to them. In this environment, leaders cannot rely on established authority to get the job done. They need their peers to do more than just comply with a request; they need them to fully commit to their vision and work together to make it happen.”

From Janice Burns: The 1-Word Question About Leadership Training That Often Goes Unanswered

“To get the best outcomes from your leadership training programs, it’s much more important to understand the ‘what’ that’s driving your training before you focus on the how.”
