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 for frontline leaders, coaching for leadership development, strategic self-awareness, and leadership development at MUSC.

From Vikram Bhalla, Deborah Lovich, Jean-Michel Caye, Christopher Daniel, and Liza Stutts: How Frontline Leaders Can Deliver Breakout Performance

“Imagine this scenario: Josh, one of the top-performing employees in a key division of your company, gets promoted to his first management role. Josh is excited by the trust you’ve put in him, not to mention the pay increase and opportunity to oversee a team. But he’s also nervous because he’s never managed employees before. The company provides him with some training sessions, including a quick ‘welcome to management’ meeting and a few online modules, which he’s supposed to pull up when he has specific questions. The trouble is, most of the modules seem disconnected from his real work. They’re based on abstract concepts with little or no connection to the daily challenges he faces.”

From Carol Patton: Strategic Self-Awareness

“Next-generation leadership programs produce whole leaders by getting them to turn inward and critique themselves.”

From Michael Bungay Stanier: Great Leaders Coach for Development, Not Just Performance

“What does great leadership really look like? It’s easy to say something vague like ‘To be a great leader, you must be a good coach.’ After all, a good coach has the ability to help team members unleash their potential, and isn’t that the perfect example of great leadership?”

From Debra Walker: A “Quest” for Leadership Development

“Angela Egner envisioned a culture where leadership is viewed as a privilege and a responsibility. A culture where leaders personally seek development opportunities, and where leaders see ‘leadership’ as a collective endeavor where all leaders commit to the common good of the organization.”

Wally Bock is a coach, a writer and President of Three Star Leadership.
