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 budgeting for leadership development, the top traits for success, Bain’s latest management tools and trends, and disrupting management.

From Rick Lepsinger: Budgeting for Learning and Development? 5 Tips

From Peter Economy: This Study of 300,000 Leaders Revealed the Top 10 Traits for Success

“According to leadership development consultants Jack Zenger and Joseph Folkman, these are the skills that leaders need to succeed.”

From Bain: Management Tools & Trends 2017

“Technology breakthroughs continue to reshuffle industries and shift competition, changing the ways we work, manage and organize. The persistence and power of this ongoing digital transformation is evident in the results of our most recent Management Tools & Trends survey, as managers embrace digital tools like Advanced Analytics and the Internet of Things. Just as striking, digital natives and established technology companies are turning novel management and organizational concepts into operational realities as they move away from hierarchical structures and embrace Agile Management, accelerating innovation and pushing power and responsibility to the front line.”

From the London Business School: Disrupting management

“Disruption isn’t just about digital. The common theme at London Business School’s (LBS) HR Strategy Forum 2018 was that it’s time to reconsider the human side of work. Is your management fit for purpose? Are your people equipped to play their part in your organisation’s survival in a future where the ground moves even as you’re walking across it? Technology advances at its own furious pace, but our response should be less about getting technical experts to get on top of that and more about reconsidering what it is to work in a way that’s more adaptable, to look at what roles people may play in our organisations of the future.”
