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 to become CEO, seven tenets of a good succession process, leadership development and vision, and leadership development in 2017l

From Thomas J. Saporito: Becoming a New CEO…Through the Eyes of Long-Term CEOs

“Over the decades, I’ve asked questions that tend to reveal the unspoken challenges of new CEOs. Through research and interviews with seasoned CEOs, we have identified three issues that often vex new leaders. Let me share their experiences, as well as my own, in dealing with these realities.”

From Victoria Luby and Jane Stevenson: 7 Tenets of a Good CEO Succession Process

“Perhaps no single factor has a greater impact on a company’s future — for better or worse — than the selection of a new CEO. Choosing a CEO is a high-stakes proposition, arguably the most important decision a board can make.”

From George E.L. Barbee: A Simple Concept: Lead with a Vision

“I have found that the best way to stretch yourself creatively as a leader is by collecting ‘nuggets’: short, accessible reminders of what you probably already know but may have forgotten to put into practice. The best nuggets are easy to grasp and to communicate, meaty enough to lead you to pause and reflect, and open-ended enough that you can think of ways to apply them to your own business, or even of changes that would bring them up to date.”

From Andrea Derler: A Look Ahead at Leadership 2016/2017: Redefining Leadership

“Currently, five big topics are on the horizon in the areas of leadership and succession management:
1. Leadership in the open talent economy
2. Formal leadership programs under scrutiny
3. The meaning of high potential
4. Digital leadership
5. Building collaboration and alignment between HR and business leaders”
