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 agile leadership development and what to do when your bread and butter skills don’t work anymore.

From Julie Winkle Giuoioni: Three Break-Through Practices for Agile L&D

“It turns out that ‘agile’ flies in the face of many time-tested and well-accepted practices that have become familiar parts of the learning function. As a result, it might be time for learning professionals to let go of old best practices in favor of better break-through practices that facilitate more flexible and nimble responses to changing business conditions and needs.”

From David Hoff: Learning Agility – What it Means for Employees, Leaders and Businesses

“One of the great mysteries of leadership development programs, succession planning initiatives and high-potential efforts is how effective they are at capturing the results of past efforts and predicting the capability of someone to master as-yet-unknown challenges.”

From Corey Burns: Learning & Development – It’s Really About $$$

“When explaining L&D to others outside of work, I often take the short route and say it’s a fancy word for training and employee performance. Most don’t understand that learning is an ongoing function rather than a specific task, which is why it’s not just ‘training.'”

From Richmond Fourmy: When Your Bread and Butter Skills Stop Working

“The C-suite is a coveted career destination for ambitious leaders. But once they get there, many discover that leading at the top of the organization isn’t what they thought it would be. As a result, finding themselves in unfamiliar territory, they may fail or, at the very least, struggle to succeed.
