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 creating an environment of lifelong learning, the power of data, individual leadership development versus a company’s leadership development, and how to make learning a habit you enjoy.

From Ted Bililies: How To Create An Environment Of Lifelong Learning As The Leader

“Over the past several years, CEOs have begun to embrace the importance of becoming lifelong learners. Gone is the ‘authority figure’ ideal of the past, and with it the idea that the person at an organization’s helm is a fully formed individual who simply must now take action based on years of stored knowledge. Instead, what more people are realizing, is that the best leaders consider themselves to be in a constant state of growth and development. They never stop learning.”

From Joseph Folkman: The Power Of Data: The Recipe For Leadership Development

“It is interesting that many times we know the difference between when something is good versus when it is great, but it is more difficult to understand precisely what makes that difference.”

From Jack Zenger: Individual Leadership Development Versus A Company’s Leadership Development

“But what is the overall key to success at the organization level? Ironically, it is almost the polar opposite of the ‘choose one thing and work on it’ mantra that works for individual development. Success at the organizational level depends on several elements being in place simultaneously. The more elements in place, the better the outcome.”

From Liz Guthridge: How To Make Learning A Habit You Enjoy

“If you’re serious about learning, it will be easier to find time to learn if you redefine your relationship with education. For example, think of yourself as an adult learner, not a student.”
