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 relevant for International Women’s Day which was March 8.

From Tacy Byham: #LeadLikeAGirl: Ignite Your Impact as a Leader!

“As we objectively take a close look at women and leadership, it is not really a woman’s issue, it’s a business issue. There’s a lot of undisputed data that shows having diversity in your organizations and female leaders pays off. DDI and the Conference Board collaborated on the Global Leadership Forecast 2014|2015 (GLF), a survey of over 2,000 global organizations in all industries. We compared the top 20 percent high-performing organizations to the bottom 20 percent, and high-performing organizations have twice as many women leaders (37 percent vs. 19 percent)”

From Steffen Maier: 6 Changes Your Company Must Make to Develop More Female Leaders

“Unconscious bias is undermining companies that sincerely, but wrongly, believe they are meritocracies.”

From Karsten Strauss: Top Companies For Women Executives In 2017

“Companies powered by female leadership received kudos, this week, in an annual report on businesses that have proven themselves fantastic environments for women in roles of authority. Among the most lauded firms on the list, women make up more than half of the top tenth of earners and 44% of all the executives with profit-and-loss responsibilities.”

From Bravetta Hassell: How are You Developing Board-Ready Female Leaders?

“Women account for less than a fifth of board directors, but companies can take steps now to address this disparity.”
