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 skills future CEO’s will need, coaching , better return on your l development investment, and how to sell your boss on a development program.

From Dan Bigman: Former Google People Chief Laszlo Bock On 3 Critical Skills Future CEOs Will Need

“Few people have had as much influence over the intersection of technology and leadership as Laszlo Bock, who led ‘people operations’ at Google for a decade, helping to create one of the legendary corporate cultures in business history.”

From Mary Ellen Sailer: 3 Ways Coaching Can Impact New Leader Development

“When I listen to organizational sponsors express their needs for leadership development, it can be framed as a need to shift people from almost ready to ready NOW. Coaching is a significant way to develop high potentials into emerging leaders. Here are three ways a coach can help.”

From Brent Gleeson: 4 Steps For A Better Return On Development Investment

“When I did start investing in leadership development and management training, I made another mistake. I took very little time to research the right training and gathering insight into the actual needs of our people.”

From Darleen DeRosa: How to Sell Your Boss On Development

“Although most organizations understand the importance and value of leadership development, persuading executives to dedicate precious resources to it can be difficult because the return on investment is not clearly established. A Gap International survey of executives found that while 85% believed it was important to maximize a company’s talent and 83% said it was important to empower employees to succeed, less than half had any plans to invest in leadership development programs that year.”

Wally Bock is a coach, a writer and President of Three Star Leadership.
