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 leadership development on the job, leading from a distance, hot leadership topics for 2019, and leadership development secrets.

From Jeff Weber: Five Ways New Managers Can Learn Leadership On The Job

“In a perfect world, all new managers would undergo extensive, industry-specific leadership training prior to assuming their new role. However, research reported in the Harvard Business Review indicates the average age of first-time managers is 30. The same study found they aren’t receiving leadership training until they’re 42, more than 10 years after most of them started supervising junior staff.”

From Darleen DeRosa: Leading From a Distance: Five Lessons For Success

“Leading a team of diverse employees with different needs is hard enough. Scatter those employees across different geographic areas, where face-to-face contact is infrequent, priorities are constantly shifting, and there is little time to address individual needs, and you can begin to understand why leading a virtual team is one of the most difficult jobs in business today.”

From Stephanie Neal: 10 Hot Leadership Topics for 2019

“For the past four years we’ve been tracking the topics that stand out according to top HR and leadership influencers. This year there are distinct upward trends in some issues that continue to drive impact in business and the workplace, as well as new challenges that are rising for HR and business leaders to confront in the years and decade ahead.”

From the Association of Equipment Manufacturers: 3 Secrets to Successful Leadership Development

“However, even though the task of leading others is often deemed a priority within organizations of all sizes and types, a significant percentage of employees today find themselves promoted to supervisory roles without formal leadership training of any kind. It’s an overlooked problem for many companies, and it’s one they simply can’t afford not to address.”
