September 1, 2017 by Wally Bock

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 agile leadership, culture, learning for leadership development and training the way people want to learn.

From Rick Lepsinger: 3 Innovative Companies With Agile Leadership

“What sets the most innovative companies apart? Having a great product only goes so far; sustaining that success requires agile leadership.”

Frmo Ben Slater: 4 Ways to Shape Your Culture So It Matters

“Can we blame people for judging companies on their culture? We all spend such a high proportion of our lives at the office nowadays, that it’s unsurprising that we care about our working environment. Most conversations on culture inevitably end.”

From Carol Anderson: Trainers Need to Become Learning Curators

“When my family moved to Florida eight years ago, we bought a house with a pool. We loved looking outside at night with the pool light on; peaceful and beautiful. But a few months later, the bulb burned out.”

From Carol Leaman: Are You Training the Way People Want to Learn?

“According to an Ipos poll, 30% of workers say they haven’t received any formal workplace training from their employer. Of the remaining employees who did receive some form of training, 46% say it just wasn’t effective. There is more than one reason, including the Forgetting Curve and lack of practice and reinforcement. One common problem is that antiquated methods and technology fail to engage workers in the training. Chances are, like many other employers, you are using antiquated technology that doesn’t deliver the mobile, engaging and adaptive learning experience that your modern employees demand. Developing top performers means paying attention to the needs of the modern learner.”
