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

From Mike Prokopeak: Building the Leader of the Future

“The stakes are high. Leaders face a complex and ever-evolving business environment that can overwhelm them professionally and personally. Those charged with developing the next generation of leaders have a dizzying set of theories and methods to choose from to develop leaders.”

From McKinsey: The CEO of Guardian Life on talent in an age of digital disruption

“By rethinking its approach to talent management and introducing agile working practices, the company aims to stay a step ahead of disruptive competitors.”

From Bob Morris: The Mind of the Leader: A book review

“And now in The Mind of the Leader, Hougaard and Carter note that in 2017, almost $50-billion was spent on leadership development and more than that will be spent this year. ‘That’s a lot of money for seemingly little return. What’s going wrong? In part, the system is broken…something more is needed: leadership that truly engages employees is truly hum, and addresses basic human needs any employee needs.’ Hougaard and Carter conducted research that involved more than thirty thousand leaders from thousands of companies in more than one hundred countries, conducted in-depth interviews with hundreds of C-suite executives, and reviewed the results oif thousands of studies on leadership in the fields of neuroscience, leadership, organizational development, and psychology.”

From thoughtLEADERS: How important is it that training be customized for your organization?

“Beware of Customization. The vast majority of you are looking for customization of your training. While this is absolutely true of technical training related to your business processes or industry-specific skills, beware of customizing all your training.”
