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 Rick Lepsinger: Make Every Minute Count With These 5 Leadership Development Strategies

“If you work at a large or midsize company, six minutes is the average amount of time your managers spend on training every six months, according to research from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Let that sink in for a moment: Just one minute per month!”

From Quy Huy: The Emotional Sophistication Tomorrow’s Leaders Will Need

“In an increasingly automated workplace, leaders should concentrate on uniquely human skillsets.”

From John Hoover: Onboarding Is Even More Critical for New Leaders

“Either way, your onboarding program needs to begin prior to Day One — even before work begins — to have a lasting, sustainable impact on the new leader’s resilience in the position. Whether you are pre-boarding your new leader for the new role before he or she arrives, onboarding the leader the moment he or she enters the building or re-boarding an existing leader into a new position in your firm, every day — every hour — is crucial to the leader’s success in the new role and the organization’s success with the new leader.”

From John F. Broer: But I Don’t Want to Be a Leader

“Case in point, we continue to put people in management and leadership roles who are ill equipped to develop other people or really have no passion for it. It’s an unfortunate practice that persists despite the growing availability and advancement of diagnostic tools and the application of competency mapping around variables like emotional intelligence. Talent development professionals can and should proactively identify people developers within their organizations and work to advocate for performance systems that identify and guide individual contributors versus authentic people developers.”
