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 how developing your people is like brushing your teeth, using coaching in leadership development, organic leadership development, and hanging on to those high potentials.

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: Developing Employees in Like Brushing Your Teeth

“Yet, in the workplace, where it plays an equally vital role supporting organizational (and sometimes individual) advancement and survival, development doesn’t always get the attention it deserves. Over the years, leaders have become confused about what it is and how it operates. They’ve internalized some inaccurate beliefs that drive ineffective behavior.”

From Colmon Elridge: Using Coaching to Develop First-time Leaders

“In a recent survey of leaders who received transition coaching at EY, the following engagement indicators were a direct result of coaching: 96 percent understood what drives them, 89 percent were clearer about their role and responsibilities, 80 percent more confidently navigated their environment, 83 percent identified and built the relationships that matter to their success, 80 percent found their footing faster, and 88 percent felt stronger as a leader.”

From Sarah Fister Gale: Growing Leaders Organically

“Amy’s Kitchen baked the company’s idiosyncratic culture, values and sustainable business model into a homegrown Leadership Academy.”

From Michelle M. Smith: Are You at Risk of Losing Your Rising Stars?

“Rising stars are great performers and a welcomed advantage for any leader. But if you’re not careful with how you manage them, you can easily lose them to another organization.”

Wally Bock is a coach, a writer and President of Three Star Leadership.
