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 supervisors and leadership development, developing resilient leaders, developing high performing leaders, and making the business case for leadership development,

From Dr. David Ballard: Managers Aren’t Doing Enough to Train Employees for the Future

“For employees who lack supervisor support and encouragement for career development, only 15% say they their employer is providing them with opportunities to develop the technical skills they will need in the future, only 20% say their employer provides training in necessary ‘soft skills,’ such as teamwork and communication. Just 8% report having the opportunity to develop necessary leadership and management skills. With a supportive supervisor, those numbers jump to 75% and higher.”

From Corinne Williams: Five Routines To Build Resilient Leaders

“Leading growth can be a thrilling, exhilarating white-knuckle ride constantly stretching leaders outside their comfort zone. Whilst this adrenaline-pumping journey can be exciting, it brings with it plenty of stress and adversity, meaning that the ability to cope, persevere, and bounce back are critical. This boils down to the question, How do leaders sustain focus over the long term, and at the same time remain healthy? Or in short, how do they stay resilient?”

From Kavita Sahai: Five Research-Backed Techniques To Develop High-Performing Leaders

“Leadership in the corporate world seems like something we should have figured out long ago. However, approximately 35% of companies consider their leadership development practices to be below-average or poor. The increase in millennials in the workforce has shone a light on this issue further. In one survey, 93% of millennials reported leaving a company to obtain a new role.”

From David Witt: Leadership Training—3 Challenges When Making the Business Case

“Here are the three biggest challenges L&D professionals face—along with some resources to successfully address each challenge.”
