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 how to become more useful to leaders, successful leadership transitions, mindsets for successful leadership development, and talent strategy fundamentals.

From Roger Trapp: Three Ways Learning And Development Specialists Can Make Themselves More Useful To Leaders

“In such an environment, one might expect learning and development to be center-stage. After all, transformation must involve the acquisition and development of new skills. And yet, the latest State of Leadership Development report, published today by Harvard Business Publishing Corporate Learning, suggests otherwise.”

From Scott Keller and Mary Meaney: Successfully transitioning to new leadership roles

“Hardly anything that happens at a company is more important than a high-level executive transition. By the nature of the role, a new senior leader’s action or inaction will significantly influence the course of the business, for better or for worse. Yet in spite of these high stakes, leaders are typically underprepared for—and undersupported during—the transition to new roles.”

From Brent Gleeson: 7 Mindsets Necessary For Successful Leadership Development

“In order for an organization’s investment in leadership development to be successful, they must first assess the willingness and readiness of their current and emerging leaders to actually improve. And while more and more companies are finally beginning to realize that – when approached correctly – developing leaders does in fact drive profitability – most are still just providing basic management training. There’s a big difference.”

From Saba Software: Talent Strategy Fundamentals: Learning And Development

“So what goes into investing in learning and development programs? Well, a lot. That’s why we’ve broken it down into the pieces you need to keep in mind to have a successful talent strategy.”
