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 performance reviews, leadership development for a VUCA world, developing agile-ready leaders, and leadership development and effective training.

From Lori Goler, Janelle Gale, and Adam Grant: Let’s Not Kill Performance Reviews Yet

“We all want performance evaluations to be fair. That isn’t always the outcome, but as more than 9,000 managers and employees reported in a global survey by CEB, not having evaluations is worse. Every organization has people who are unhappy with their bonuses or disappointed that they weren’t promoted. But research has long shown that when the process is fair, employees are more willing to accept undesirable outcomes. A fair process exists when evaluators are credible and motivated to get it right, and employees have a voice. Without evaluations, people are left in the dark about who is gauging their contributions and how.”

From Amit Mukherjee: Leadership Development for a VUCA World

“Suppose a multinational company needs an executive to lead its entry into a country that could experience spectacularly strong economic growth, but could also falter. The market has rough-and-tumble social, economic, political, and business environments, and a glacially slow judicial process in which national laws are deemed by the powerful and the connected as the starting points for negotiations.”

From Jay Anderson and Russ White: Becoming Agile-Ready Leaders

“We often hear non-technical folks who have been wondering if/how Agile could work in their own team. But before we answer that question, let’s take a quick look at where it all came from.”

From Sharlyn Lauby: Measure Training Effectiveness by Results, Not Hours

“I recently had an opportunity to attend a learning and development conference in India, where measuring training effectiveness was a topic of discussion. One of the speakers, Foo Chek Wee, human resources director at ZALORA Group based in Singapore, made the comment that organizations needed to stop measuring training by hours and start measuring by results.”
