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 the ROI of leadership development, what’s missing from your leadership development program, keeping the beat to leadership and learning, and how to grow better leaders.

From Darleen DeRosa: Measuring the ROI of Leadership Development

“CEOs want hard facts upon which to base the efficacy (and likewise, the value) of a leadership training and development program. They want quantifiable proof that success is directly related to training and not to some change in the internal or external environment such as a new product release, changes in technology or an improved economy.”

From David Witt: Your Leadership Training Is Probably Missing These Two Components

“In a recent interview, Scott Blanchard, principal and executive vice president with The Ken Blanchard Companies identified two key competencies missing from most leadership development curriculum.”

From Bill Hester: Leadership & Learning: Keeping the Beat

“I’ve always wanted to play the drums. So, early last year I invested in a drum kit, found an amazing teacher, and started. As I have been a working musician for years, I’ll confess I had always thought that playing drums would be dead easy. I couldn’t have been more wrong. I was totally unprepared for the challenge of willing four different limbs to operate independently.”

From Michelle M. Smith: How to Grow Better Leaders

“The quality of an organization’s leadership almost always foreshadows its chances for sustained success. Leadership and culture are also the most significant factors in attracting and retaining the best talent – ranking three times higher than salary, according to data from Glassdoor.”

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