Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 6/2/17

June 2, 2017 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 leadership development posts. This week, you’ll find pointers to posts about leadership training, leadership development for the toughest challenges, and whether we’re developing more leaders than we need.

From Ted Bauer: Leadership training needs to be blown up and redone.

“Mainly what changed was technology and access to information, be that via the Internet, mobile, or the cloud. A 1972 Fortune 500 CEO had to have a team of lieutenants to run/organize information for him. Now he has access to the same stuff that probably a 17-year-old girl in Anaheim could get on her phone, minus maybe some proprietary documents. Information is freer, which requires a new look at leadership — and a new look at leadership training.”

From David Creelman: If Millennials Invented Training, Here’s What It Might Look Like

“Imagine if a group of millennials had been given the task of inventing some means of accelerating learning in the organization. What would they create? How much would it look like the training we know?”

From Kristine Sloan: What Kind Of Leadership Does The World’s Toughest Challenges Need?

“We are in a time of an incredible shift. This is a time when we can actually get a glimpse of how interconnected and intersectional our challenges are. It can be terrifying. It also provides us with a unique opportunity: We can address these challenges in a fundamentally different way. We can access more knowledge than we have ever been able to before.”

From Alan E. Nelson: Could we have more leaders than we need?

“Given the number of surveys and articles noting that talent development and specifically filling the leadership pipeline is what’s keeping CEOs awake at night, it may seem like a pipe dream (pun intended) to have more leaders than we need, but I’m convinced it’s possible.”
