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 why management training doesn’t work, leadership development and informal online learning myths, human leadership development, and AI and leadership development.

From Katy Tynan: Why Management Training Doesn’t Work (and What You Should Be Doing Instead)

“Changing habits is hard work, and while every attendee of this workshop has the intention of becoming a better leader, science tells us that when they get back to their desks, they’ll go back to their old habits. Study after study has shown that while learners enjoy workshops, and rate them highly, they don’t actually create lasting behavior change. The interactive activities are engaging, but they don’t directly apply to the day to day challenges that managers face.”

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: Informal, Online Learning: The Half-Truths That Undermine Success

“If you’re like many organizations, you’re exploring the possibilities associated with informal, online learning. After all, the promises associated with this instructional delivery strategy are exciting. Greater reach. Consistent messaging. Tracking and monitoring. Cost savings. Ability to scale. Instantaneous updating. And the list goes on. And, if you’re like many organizations, after you began experimenting with informal learning, disappointment set in when you saw that your efforts fell short of expectations.”

From Jim Bouchard: “Human” leadership development: Your ultimate succession plan!

“The CU world is paying a lot of attention to leadership development and succession planning these days. And that’s a good thing! Just be sure that along with the technical side, you’re making an equal investment in the human aspects of leadership.”

From Mengqiao Liu: We Replaced Leaders with Artificial Intelligence. Here’s What We Learned.

“Five million jobs are projected to be replaced by technology by 2020, and, according to the 2016 World Economic Forum, 50 percent of today’s workforce activities will be automated by 2055. Artificial Intelligence (AI), the study of machines that can imitate human intelligence, is undeniably revolutionizing our world, transforming the way we learn, shop, entertain, and more. Immersed in this AI era, you’ve probably wondered if you should start automating your organization, as well. And, if you do, you may be wondering if there will still be a place for leaders in the workplace in 20 years.”
