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 for all ages, the route from CHRO to CEO, what we want to develop, and why leaders must learn or die.

From Jennifer J. Deal: Leadership for All Ages

“Do millennials, Gen Xers and baby boomers in the U.S. have different beliefs about what makes a leader effective? While it’s commonly believed that the generations’ preferences are substantially different, research from the Center for Creative Leadership (Editor’s note: The author works for CCL) shows when it comes to leadership, the generations are more alike than different.”

From China Gorman: CHRO to CEO: Stairway to Heaven

“The Korn Ferry Institute recently released a report that looks at the leadership traits of “best-in-class” executives, and the important relationship between Chief Executive Officers and Chief Human Resources Officers.”

From Bernard Garrette: Don’t call me a leader

“Good managers are no longer good enough. Top companies want to hire and develop leaders. And business schools have been quick to claim that they are ideal places in which to learn leadership. But in the process business schools may be in danger of offering something that students simply do not want and that companies do not actually value.”

From Michael McKinney: Learn or Die

“Our ability (and willingness) to learn impacts our personal and business growth, operational excellence, and our capacity to innovate. More than ever, it truly is learn or die.”
