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 four leadership development strategies, leadership development workshops, the war for talent, and tieing leadership development to potential challenges.

From Kellogg Insight: Four Strategies for Cultivating Strong Leaders Internally

“A retired brigadier general explains how companies can prioritize talent development.”

From the London Business School: The secret of brilliant leadership workshops

“John Dore reveals a number of guiding principles to improve the design and delivery of leadership workshops.”

From Hank Jackson: The Unending “War for Talent”

“There’s a popular saying in some HR circles today: ‘The war for talent is over—and talent won.’ We have seen this so-called war wax and wane with economic cycles, evolve with new technology, and intensify under globalization. It should now be clear to everyone that, whether we’re in good economic times or bad, in a period of stability or disruption, the skills shortage is an ever-present challenge.”

From Ted Bauer: Tie employee development to potential challenges

“And yet, oftentimes, this is what we do: put 15 people in a room, despite those differences, and train ’em up the same way. Why do we do this? Because it’s easier and more cost-effective, and that’s ultimately what the company cares about. The notion of ‘employee development’ is a thing we say matters, but how much it actually matters varies greatly by company.”

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