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 aiming high in leadership development, talent strategy, a framework for managers to use when developing leaders, and succession planning.

From Jack Zenger: How Some Companies Are Aiming High In Leadership Development

“We know from our research at Zenger Folkman that the majority of leaders can become significantly more effective when they are given accurate information about their current practices and provided with help in constructing a plan of development.”

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.”

From Art Petty: A Manager’s Guide to Developing Emerging Leaders

“What managers need is a practical way to think about emerging leader development and a framework to guide their efforts. Some years ago while working with a group of managers navigating the emerging leader challenge on their teams, I suggested a foundation and pillars approach as a framework for guiding coaching and developmental activities. This framework emerged from my own experiences supporting the development of emerging leaders and had helped me focus my efforts.”

From Hunt Scanlon Media: How to Make Succession Planning Work in Practice

“A lack of succession planning can cost companies dearly, potentially leaving them with few options when faced with a transition at the top. A new report by Furst Group/NuBrick Partners looks at how well-executed executive succession planning can help attract and retain top talent.”

Thanks to Mike Haberman for pointing me to this article.
