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

From Vibhas Ratanjee: Experience Reigns in Development

“Gallup finds an alarming deficit in the experience piece. Too few programs can clearly define the experiences that lead to excellence in leadership; they don’t individualize, they can’t match leader to experience at the time it’s most needed, and they don’t help leaders analyze their experiences so they can effectively apply them in the future.”

From Heidi Grant, Mary Slaughter, and Andrea Derler: 5 Mistakes Companies Make About Growth Mindsets

“Hoping to learn how organizations put growth mindset to use in a rapidly changing work environment, the NeuroLeadership Institute has spent the last two months interviewing HR practitioners at more than 20 major organizations around the world. Our goal is to find out what, exactly, leaders are doing when they implement growth mindset around their organization.”

From Rick Lepsinger: Can You Groom Everyone To Be An Effective Leader?

“Today’s organizations understand the value of leadership. Every year, companies invest billions of dollars on leadership training to identify, prepare, and develop effective leaders. With so much emphasis on leadership, it’s worth taking a step back to reassess why leaders are important for an organization, and to ask whether or not anyone can step into a leadership role successfully.”

From the Economist: More staff training is vital

“AMERICAN companies spent $91bn on staff training last year, almost a third as much again as they did in 2016. That equated to more than $1,000 for every staff member being taught, according to a survey by Training magazine.”
