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 DIY leadership development, ledership development and self-learning strategies, succession planning, and hiring.

From Carter Cast: 6 Ways to Take Control of Your Career Development If Your Company Doesn’t Care About It

“We are now in the era of do-it-yourself career development. Companies less frequently offer formal training — a trend that has been around for years. This may be because employees change jobs so frequently (job tenure now averages about four years) that firms don’t see the value in investing in people who are likely to leave. This is a sharp contrast with the investment that senior leaders used to make in employees. During my 11 years at PepsiCo, mostly during the 1990s, ‘personal development’ was treated as a major company initiative.”

From Sharlyn Lauby: Training Must Include Employee Self Learning Strategies

“But as I thought about these articles, I thought there might be some alignment. I don’t believe that personalization and individualization are mutually exclusive.”

From Tim Sackett: Succession Planning for Everyday Department Managers

“Arguably, besides great performance management, your department level managers will define their success as a leader based on how well they can perform succession. We see this constantly in organizations and individuals where our best leaders in succession have a lineage of great performers they’ve promoted up with the organization.”

From Dylan Walsh: Look Beyond “Culture Fit” When Hiring

“Research points to another important trait that can determine the success of a new hire.”
