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 planning a leadership development journey, building culture bridges to develop a new generation of leaders, challenges to leadership and development, and How To Create A Leadership Development Program That Actually Works

From Claudia Hill and Allen Moore: Strategy Activation: Planning a leadership development journey

“Leadership development practitioners must find ways to engage individuals’ personal desire for growth, while at the same time giving organizations the leaders they need to drive their business strategy. Finding that balance can be a challenge. In this piece, Korn Ferry explains a framework—a leadership development journey—that connects individual growth to organizational needs”

From Wharton: Building Cultural Bridges to Develop a New Generation of Leaders

“Eleven educators from the U.S. recently spent a week in Qatar and Bahrain assimilating the region’s ethos and culture and dispelling some myths and stereotypes. Their itinerary included schools, universities, businesses, science and cultural centers, and interactions with students, educators and people across the public and private sectors. The trip was part of the Teachers Educating Across Cultures in Harmony (TEACH) program, an annual fellowship from the Texas-based Bilateral U.S.-Arab Chamber of Commerce.”

From Martin Couzins: Learning Technologies 2015: L&D has to “undo educational damage”

“The technology of today has completely transformed how employees access information and how they use it. But the technology of tomorrow could do this all over again.”

From Jason Geller: How To Create A Leadership Development Program That Actually Works

“But while many organizations recognize the importance of leadership development, our research shows that 42% of chief experience officers surveyed aren’t making this a priority. Even worse, only 18% of the organizations we surveyed hold their leaders accountable for identifying and developing successors on a regular basis.”
