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 basics of leadership, executive education, and talent development in the age of digital disruption.

From the Savannah Group: Is It Time To Go Back To The Fundamentals of Leadership?

“Ron [Ashkenas] argues that what’s needed in the leadership sphere now more than ever is a back to basics approach. At a time when organisations are demanding more and better leaders in the face of global competition, changing markets, new technology, and shifting social norms, there has been an explosion of new leadership approaches. Unfortunately, this quest for new answers has often led to gimmickry, simplistic self-help, heroic modelling and ultimately a disconnect with what the organization needs to succeed.”

From Bruce Court: The Importance of the Basics in Developing Leadership Skills

“In today’s rapidly changing world, where terms like cultural transformation, big data, digital leadership, and many others are thrown around like confetti, it can be challenging to design and deliver leadership development programs that produce the desired business outcomes. What’s more, new technology has added another layer of complexity to the successful design and delivery of training solutions.”

From Russ Banham: Out-Of-The-Box Approaches To Executive Education

“No surprise, then, that many companies are taking a fresh look. Led by CEOs who are firm believers in the value of continuous education, such organizations are sponsoring a wide range of internal programs customized to specific business needs and goals. Like more traditional Exec Ed, the programs are intended to fill skills gaps, but they’re also designed to produce more tangible results”

From Anita Bowness: Talent Development in the Age of Digital Disruption

“A 2014 study from Constellation Research concluded that industry-leading companies’ ability to adapt to digital disruption was a key factor in their long-term success, by analyzing the average tenure of companies that make the Fortune 500 list. Since 2000, they found that digital disruption caused 52 percent of these companies to declare bankruptcy, go through an acquisition, or simply cease to exist – no industry is immune to digital.”
