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 what you need to make your leadership development program effective, optimizing workforce performance, tomorrow’s learning, and how a talent growth mindset creates a company growth trajectory.

From Rick Lepsinger: The 6 Things You Need To Make Leadership Development Effective

“The modern workplace is vastly different from what it once was. Today, organizations of all sizes and industries face increasingly globalized markets, remotely-located employees/teams, and the need for cross-disciplinary teams. To meet the demands of customers, it is imperative to have agile leaders who can balance people, processes, and innovation to keep the organization moving forward.”

From Michael Bosman: Leveraging Psychological Capital To Optimize Workforce Performance

“Increasingly, the success of modern businesses relies on the ability of company leadership to continuously develop their teams, to drive performance as the sole mechanism for keeping pace with an ever-evolving, ever-tightening marketplace. Traditional HR practices, however, have all too often relied upon an outmoded orientation toward performance management. More specifically, these practices envision the workforce as largely static, possessed (or, conversely, devoid) of the traits the organization needs. This puts the burden of performance management falling principally on the recruiting process.”

From Charles Coy: Today’s Learning is Nothing Like Tomorrow’s Is Going to Be

“Organizations are investing in talent development now more than ever. According to LinkedIn’s 2017 Workplace Learning Report, talent is the top priority for 69% of learning and development (L&D) professionals. And despite the rise of new learning technologies, 78% of L&D professionals say in-house, instructor-led classes are still the primary way they teach employees. There’s just one problem: this learning approach no longer appeals to today’s workers.”

From Evan Sinar: How a Talent Growth Mindset Creates a Company Growth Trajectory

“Facing the relentless business pressures of digital transformation and disruptive automation companies—and the leaders on whose backs they thrive or fail—must rapidly advance and broaden their leadership capabilities to survive. The resulting sense of urgency, paired with ever-intensifying competitive forces, makes the search for evidence-based growth levers a crucial corporate imperative.”
