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 success, leadership development throughout the organization, developing great leaders, and talent trends for 2018.

From Success Labs: 5 Ways to Set Your Emerging Leaders Up for Success in 2018

“Senior managers often assume successful individual contributors will innately understand how to be a leader and transition smoothly into a supervisory position. The reality is often much more complex because they are stepping into an entirely new job with different day-to-day duties, relationships, expectations and visibility within the organization.”

From Leo Vartorella: Developing leadership at every level: 4 questions with Scripps Health CEO Chris Van Gorder

“Many executives claim to value leadership development, but few take steps as structured and focused as Mr. Van Gorder. He created three formal leadership academies within Scripps, with each focused on the skills and responsibilities of different leadership levels. The Scrips Leadership Academy, founded in 2001, is the oldest program and focuses on the highest-level employees. The Employee 100 began in 2010 and the Front Line Leader Academy 2015. A total of 1,190 Scripps employees have graduated from the three academies combined.”

From Andy Swann: Developing Great Leaders: The Human Workplace Perspective

“To develop great leaders, we need to develop everyone. In the modern world of work, being a leader doesn’t require a job title, it’s something any or all of us can take responsibility for. Sure, some of us agree to be tasked with it, but that doesn’t mean those are the limits of leadership in any given organization.”

From Andrew McIlvaine: Talent Trends: The Year Ahead

“What’s in store for recruiters and talent acquisition leaders in 2018? Well, artificial intelligence and automation, for one thing. But if further talk of that makes your eyes glaze over, fear not — there’s more. For example, Korn Ferry Futurestep’s 2018 Talent Trend Predictions includes a lot of focus on the importance of “home,” as in looking for fresh talent in the home office rather than at competitors’ locations. It also means letting new hires work from their homes rather than making them go through a burdensome relocation process.”
