Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 7/3/14

July 3, 2014 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 development, becoming a better leader, and more effective coaching.

From Edward H. Baker: Cynthia McCauley’s Manual for Leadership Development

“The leadership scholar explains why measurable, experience-based programs are key to helping executives develop their potential.”

From Sharlyn Lauby: Dr. Marshall Goldsmith on Becoming a Better Leader

“Years ago, I had the opportunity to hear Dr. Marshall Goldsmith speak about leadership. Dr. Goldsmith has been rated the number one executive coach globally as well as one of the top ten most influential business leaders in the world. Harvard Business Review rates him as the ‘World’s #1 Leadership Thinker.’ He’s the author of several books including one of my faves, What Got You Here Won’t Get You There.”

From Lawrence M. Miller: The Science of Positive Interactions – Key to the Coaching Kata

“Those who have read my blog posts or books have heard me refer to the ‘four-to-one principle.’ Simply stated, this says that both learning and motivation on the part of employees is optimized when the ratio of positive to negative interactions with managers lean toward four positives to one negative.”

From Les Hayman: The Leadership Gap

“I have no doubt that some elements of management and leadership can be taught, but the reality is that becoming a capable leader and manager is a journey of discovery and experimentation over one’s lifetime, rather than being a destination that one reaches after reading a few ‘pamphlets’ and some attendance on a few ‘quickie-how-to’ courses.”

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