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 what managers can learn from football coach firings, the culture-career development connection, peer-to-peer learning, and how to avoid the pitfalls of a CEO transition.

From Boris Groysberg: What Football Firings Teach Managers About Staying Relevant

“This story is not unique to sports, of course. Based on our surveys with executives from a wide range of fields, the rate at which managers lose relevance has increased dramatically, even over just the last decade. The world is changing faster than ever before; technological advances are occurring at a lightning pace due to the increased rate at which we now exchange information.”

From Julie Winkleh Giulioni: The culture-career development connection

“Being heard. Being recognized. Being valued. Being trusted. Being developed. This resonates deeply with employees. And this is what happens when managers commit to a regular cadence of career conversations.”

From Sharyn Lauby: Peer to Peer Learning: Why It Should Be Part of Your Training Strategy

“I recently sat down with a friend and colleague of mine, Kathy Shurte, CPLP, CPM, district organizational development manager for the Florida Department of Transportation, to talk about peer to peer learning programs and the value they bring to employees and organizations. I’m thrilled that Kathy agreed to share her expertise with us.”

From Tom Axbey: How To Avoid The Potential Pitfalls Of A CEO Transition

“I’ve had the opportunity to participate directly in CEO transitions…and have witnessed how such a circumstance can be executed well, despite the potential for pitfalls. To do it right, the board of directors and executives involved in the transition of power should consider the following actions.”
