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 accelerated leadership development, learning from the 2018 FIFA World Cup, preparing Millennials for leadership, and boosting the adoption of elearning.

From Dr. Ines Wichert: Avoiding the pitfalls of accelerated leadership development

“However, accelerated leadership development comes with several pitfalls. The most significant of these are burnout, derailment in role and incomplete learning, which can lead to underdeveloped people skills and the failure of becoming a well-rounded leader who understands the finer nuances of any given situation.”

I wrote about this post on 8/1/18. You can read that post here.

From Neil Suchman: What the 2018 World Cup Taught Us About Leadership Potential

“As leadership practitioners in the business world, should we (and can we) learn from this shift in soccer strategy? Are organizations relying too much on a select few high-potential leaders to take the organization to the next level? Are companies obtaining the expected ROI from their high-potential processes and initiatives? As I watched the World Cup, I could not help but make comparisons between what I was witnessing on TV and my experience with the treatment of potential within organizations.”

From Darleen DeRosa: 5 Ways to Start Training Millennials for Leadership Roles

“Millennials already make up more than a third of the labor force and will make up about half of all leadership positions within a decade. Organizations that take steps now to identify and prepare high potential candidates for leadership positions stand to benefit enormously. Here are a few strategies companies can take right now to better appeal to aspiring millennial leaders.”

From Paige Newcombe: How Improving Content Helped Siemens Boost eLearning Adoption

“Smart learning leaders know that accessible and meaningful eLearning can move the needle on ongoing performance and development. But there’s no guarantee that you’re going to see your desired business results without first implementing a high-impact learning content strategy to help get you there.”
