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 developing global leaders, developing talent through mentorship, managers as coaches, and one company’s look at their own leadership development.

From Ross Smith, Prem Kumar and Michael Horoszowski: Developing 21st Century Global Leaders in 2015

“The world of work is in the midst of dramatic change. The influences of a global workforce, social media, technology, security, privacy, rapid innovation, and economics challenge leaders in ways we’ve never seen. What does it take to be a 21st century global leader?”

From Denise Broady: Developing Talent through the Power of Mentorship

“Yet this flexibility increases the need for additional employee development. That’s why I recommend mentoring as a vehicle for learning. Mentors are typically more seasoned employees who facilitate networked learning experiences, offer career counseling, and act as a role model for other workers.”

From Ron Raque: Manager as Career Coach? Really?

“It’s true – managing is not the easiest job in the world. But it has the potential to be among the most rewarding – for your team, for your organization, and for you. Try on the ‘development coaching hat’ for a while and you might find that if fits pretty comfortably.”

From Mary Bacica: Looking Within at Leadership:? Sentis Takes a Selfie

“As researchers, we traditionally turn our focus outward to better understand what is really happening in a particular market, with a group of customers or in a specific area of the country. However, for this issue of PeopleTalk, Sentis Research took the opportunity to turn that focus inward and take a look at perceptions of leadership and gender within our own organization.”

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