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 on the risky business of leadership development, training as an investment, whether “self-driving” employees need leaders, and why the war for talent is about to go nuclear.

From Julie Winkle Giulioni: The Risky Business of Developing Leaders

“My ongoing research with senior leaders in 25+ organizations across the U.S. paints a compelling yet simple picture of the most effective leadership development strategy. When asked how their own managers or mentors helped them to grow the most, the number one response from executives is some permutation of ‘they took a risk on me,’ with more than 90% of those polled citing this as a pivotal development experience.”

From Blake Beus: Employee Training: An Business Investment You can Count On

“‘Return on investment.’ When a business has made an (often significant) investment in an employee training and development program, they want to see tangible results. But what type of results should we measure?”

From Laurence Pintenat: Do “Self-Driving” Employees Still Need Leaders?

“In a world of automation and autonomous employees, great leaders are still needed to bring the human touch to interactions.”

From Andrew Graft: The War for Talent Is About to Go Nuclear. Here’s Why and What You Can Do

“Shifting demographics, changes in consumer demand and growing global competition have set the stage for a fierce battle over the talents of the American worker – one that’s expected to rage for the next two decades.”
