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 leadership development for the future, the fatal flaw in leadership development, 360 assessments, and Google’s manager development efforts.

From Jacob Morgan: How to Develop the Future Employee

“It used to be that being an employee was a fairly well-defined process: people joined a company and stayed with that organization for their entire career, working their way up the ladder and building a nice retirement package. However, that career path is fast becoming the exception rather than the norm, as the idea of what it means to be an employee is constantly changing. Today’s employee often forgoes the traditional contract between a single organization and has more freedom to change their career.”

From Darleen DeRosa: The Fatal Flaw That Hinders Leadership Development

“We’ve all encountered people who can’t admit their mistakes or who genuinely seem to believe they can do no wrong. Working with these individuals can be challenging, as their behavior likely stems from a fatal leadership flaw: A lack of self-awareness.”

From Kevin Eikenberry: Questions I’m Asked About 360 Assessments

“As a designer of a Leadership 360 Assessment, consultant to organizations using them, and a coach to many leaders who have taken a 360 assessment, I have a wide variety of experiences and perspectives about these tools. Because of this experience, I’m often asked questions about these tools and the processes. Here, I am sharing some of those questions (and my answers) with you.”

From Google: Google’s ongoing effort to make managers awesome

“Managers matter a lot and can have a huge impact on employee performance. Learn how Google came to terms with this and sought to make every manager at Google awesome.”
