Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 12/11/15

December 11, 2015 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 winning in the workforce revolution, leadership development in 2016, ATD’s 2015 State of the Industry Report, and aligning leadership development to the broader organization.

From C. J. Prince: Talent Management: Winning in the Workforce Revolution

“One consensus among CEO panelists was that, given both the expense of turnover and cost of hiring externally, developing internal talent must be a key job of the CEO going forward. Robert Weiss, CEO of the The Cooper Companies, spends more than 50% of his time developing the capabilities of his top people and pushing them beyond their comfort zone. ‘My job is to look at every one of them, to know them, to figure out where they’ve never been exposed and how they can be the best they can be.'”

From Chris Edmonds: Leadership Development in 2016

“Merriam-Webster declared ‘culture’ the word of the year in 2014. We anxiously await the announcement of the 2015 word of the year. I’m hoping it’s ‘servant leadership.’ (OK, that’s two words!)”

From Maria Ho: Commitment to Learning Continues

“Despite the increasing use of technology to deliver training, there’s still a high use of traditional classroom-based training across organizations, according to ATD’s 2015 State of the Industry report.”

From Dani Johnson: Aligning L&D to the Broader Organization

“Over the past few months, I’ve spent significant time thinking about L&D and its relationship to the rest of the organization. I’ve been hearing more and more about how L&D is not keeping up with the needs of the business, how employees are turning to outside sources to spend their developmental hours, and how business leadership has completely lost confidence in L&D.”
