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 strategic leadership development in 2016, playing it safe leadership development, figuring out why employee development is so elusive, and the search for hidden talent treasures.

From John Schwarz: How to Tackle Talent Strategically in 2016

“Today the employment landscape is much different. Educated and skilled workers are in short supply and average turnover is more than 10%, with the best and brightest being the most mobile. Offshore outsourcing and contracting is now the business norm for all but the most proprietary and differentiated business processes.”

From Roisin Woolnough: Learning and development: report finds organisations still “playing it safe”

“Learning and development (L&D) teams have, for some time, been accused of failing to adapt their practice to a more agile business environment. The latest benchmarking report from Towards Maturity suggests that there is still room for improvement.”

From Kim Janson: Why Is Employee Development So Elusive?

“The excuses—such as it’s too expensive and takes time—are all rubbish. The apathy toward this critical business imperative has a significant ability to damage a business and is doing so across the world. Here’s how to make it different.”

From Eric J. McNulty: The Search for Hidden Talent Treasures

“Once people are inside, it’s almost as if some kind of reset button is pressed: The details of their backgrounds seem to get dumped onto a far-off slag heap, and they become known only for what they do at the new organization. I call this phenomenon resumenesia — a malady causing massive cases of forgetfulness about past experiences that may be the key to unlocking extra value in your organization’s existing talent pool.”
