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 corporate universities, measuring the results of executive coaching, critical leadership skills, and leadership development for Millennials.

From Mark Allen: Talent Management and Corporate Universities

“Corporate universities are strategic levers[1] typically thought of as having a major role in employee development. But what if corporate universities can be used to provide value in all of the talent management functions? We could gain the power of applying a lever to a lever to propel our organizations forward. This article explores that notion and provides real-world examples of corporate universities that are being used in a variety of talent management functions beyond employee development.”

From Anne Perschel: 4 Steps to Measure Results of Executive Coaching

“How do you know if you’re achieving results from your work with an executive coach and whether people who matter see positive gains? It’s important, and not complicated, to measure results of executive coaching. Sam’s case study illustrates how.”

From China Gorman: Leadership Challenges, Critical Skills and the Importance of Gender Diversity

“Let’s start by looking at top challenges of leadership cited in the report. According to the research, the top four CEO challenges are Human Capital, Customer Relations, Innovation, and Operational Excellence. When responding CEOs were asked to identify strategies to address the human capital challenge, four of the top strategies cited included a focus on leadership.”

From Don Tennant: Companies with More Millennials in Leadership Roles Perform Better, Study Finds

“Last week, I wrote about a new study that showed that companies with a higher percentage of women in leadership roles perform better. Interestingly enough, the same study also found that the more millennials a company has in leadership positions, the better it performs, as well.”
