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 performance ranking, learning, creating a talent pipeline, and retaining your talent.

From Bob Rogers: Performance Rankings are Immoral

“Attempting to capture an individual’s performance over a business cycle with one word or one number is dishonest at best. Labels that use single words or numbers may uplift a few, yet demoralize almost everyone who didn’t get the highest rating.”

From David Grebow: The Learning Curve and The Pivot Point

Here are seven tips for ensuring that your top talent not only sticks around, but also continues to deliver discretionary effort, day in and day out.”
