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 mentoring, making your business successful through leadership development, why your people need leadership development now, and what CEOs want from coaching.

From Lauren Trees: Developing employees through mentoring at Cardinal Health

“As organizations jockey to attract and retain in-demand talent, an increasing number are looking to workplace mentoring programs to decrease time-to-competency and boost employee satisfaction and engagement. Last month, I shared highlights from APQC’s recent mentoring research, including 4 reasons to support workplace mentoring and how mentoring helps prepare new hires at Praxair. This post highlights another organization featured in the research: Cardinal Health, a health care services company with more than 36,000 employees headquartered in Dublin, Ohio.”

From John Hawkins: Making Your Business More Successful With A Leadership Development Program

“Many business owners and managers take for granted the responsibility that comes with leading their business and their people. True leaders are more than just day-to-day managers. They lead with vision and purpose, and inspire those around them to do the same. In my experience coaching organizations in leadership development, I’ve seen firsthand the kinds of benefits that happen when companies invest in their people’s future.”

From Thuy Sindell: An Important Message to Today’s CEOs from the Leaders of the Future

“If you want strong leaders in the future, start developing them now—don’t wait until they’re already in leadership positions to give them the coaching they need.”

From Oliver Staley: The No. 1 thing CEOs want from executive coaching? Self-awareness

“In a survey of coaches employed by Korn Ferry, an executive search and advisory firm, ‘self awareness’ was the No. 1 topic the coaches worked on with CEOs. The second most popular? ‘Interpersonal relationships, listening skills and empathy.’”
