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 state of corporate training, effective leadership development, measuring workplace learning, and leadership development for generations X, Y, and Z.

From Darleen DeRosa: The State of Corporate Training: 7 Surprising Statistics

“Here are seven statistics that paint a more complete picture of how corporate training budgets break down, what training formats are most popular and how much organizations are willing to outsource.”

From Henrik Bresman and Vinika Rao: What Generations X, Y and Z Want From Leadership

“Managers should distribute leadership and make life more efficient for their employees.”
