Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 6/1/18

June 1, 2018 by Wally Bock

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  posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to posts about problems with leadership development, a leadership lesson from the Rolling Stones, leadership development trends, and putting lifelong learning on the CEO agenda.

From Martin Lanik: Where Did We Go Wrong?

“In fact, annual spending on leadership development has been steadily increasing since 1996. But there’s a problem: all this investment isn’t making us better leaders. On the contrary, there is a negative correlation between the macroeconomic amount spent on leadership development and our collective confidence in leadership.”

From Richard S. Wellins and Evan Sinar: A Leadership Lesson from The Rolling Stones

“The evidence continues to pour in that better leadership translates into better organizational performance. Working with 2,488 organizations from around the world, DDI’s recently released Global Leadership Forecast (GLF) 2018 demonstrates yet again the significant relationship between an array of leadership practices and multiple financial measures (EBITDA, revenue growth, and ROE).”

From Darleen DeRosa: 3 Trends to Pay Attention to in 2018

“Although companies face many challenges in evaluating and developing leadership practices that support their unique culture and goals, a number of key trends loom large in 2018. By incorporating these practices into their development programs, organizations can better prepare leadership candidates for the challenges they will surely face going forward.”

From Amy Edmondson and Bror Saxberg: Putting lifelong learning on the CEO agenda

“In an open letter to business leaders, a Harvard Business School professor and a learning engineer at the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative present an emphatic case to make learning a corporate priority.”

Thanks to Art Petty for pointing me to this post.
