Top Leadership Development Blog Posts this Week: 11/11/16

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 micro-learning, hiring great leadership, a look ahead at leadership development, and a free individual development plan template.

From Jennifer Gerves-Keen: Is Micro-learning the Next Big Thing?

“According to a recent study by Bersin by Deloitte looking at the modern learner, only one per cent of a typical work week is available to employees to focus on learning and development. Contrast that to statistics from the Association for Talent Development, which estimates that the average time spent training is still over 30 hours per employee in any given year, and we can see that many people are being asked to spend time they do not have in training courses that may or may not be relevant or useful to them.”

From Rita Barreto Craig: The Value of Hiring Great Leadership

“Spotting that perfect person may not be so difficult if you use some interviewing strategies and simple questions to determine how the candidate will handle certain situations. This can help you to assess whether or not the individual will be able to transition into someone of leadership potential. You can use strategic examples of behavioral interviewing, functional interviewing and other tactics. These types of questions help you, as a recruiter or HR personnel, to determine the best candidates based upon their answers.”

From Dani Johnson: A Look Ahead at L&D 2016 / 2017: Invisible, Contextual & Systemic

“Stop us if you’ve heard this one before: L&D is in crisis. L&D must evolve or become irrelevant. We’ve heard this declaration so often during the past few years that it’s beginning to lose its shock value. Indeed, it seems this conviction has become common knowledge among L&D leaders: According to Deloitte’s Global Human Capital Trends 2016 report the gap between the importance of employee development and L&D’s perceived ability to meet that need has jumped by 430 percent during the past two years.”

From Dan McCarthy: Free Individual Development Plan (IDP) Template

“The most popular post on this blog continues to be one of my first posts written in 2008 called How to Write a Great Individual Development Plan (IDP).”
