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 leadership development and 360 assessments, leadership development and Millennials, executive derailment, and identifying high potentials.

From Jenn Lofgren: Why A 360-Degree Assessment Isn’t Enough For Building Strong Leaders

“Strong leaders aren’t born. They’re individuals who continually open themselves up for constructive critique for their growth and improvement. Great leaders are those who raise their self-awareness in order to be proactive in developing their future and the future of their team. But how do they do this?”

From Philipe Bruce: Leadership Development and the Role of Millennials

“More than 50% of businesses claim that they do not have the resources or time to train their employees to be leaders. As such none of those business owners and leaders have the resources they need to sustain their enterprises. How serious is this? According to the same study, expenditures on leadership development programs have decreased by about 10%.”

From Richard Jolly and Randall S Peterson:Going nowhere fast: executive derailment and how to avoid it

“Getting stuck in your career doesn’t happen overnight. Here’s how to spot the warning signs and stay on track.”

From Jack Zenger and Joseph Folkman:Companies Are Bad at Identifying High-Potential Employees

“A high-potential employee is usually in the top 5% of employees in an organization. These people are thought to be the organization’s most capable, most motivated, and most likely to ascend to positions of responsibility and power. To help these employees prepare for leadership roles in a thoughtful, efficient manner, companies often institute formal high-potential (HIPO) programs.”
