How HR Should Reinvent Leadership Development

How HR Should Reinvent Leadership Development | Strategies for Managing Your Business |

HR professionals rely too much on formal training for leadership development. More strategic ways of learning and experiences outside the norm will help create future leaders.

My opinion would be human resources really need to listen and get in the trenches with leaders in all areas of an organization, including seeing how everything operates on a day to day basis for at least one week. Just my opinion.

'outsight' based leadership development; radical new thoughts there!

Probably nothing too new here, but a good synthesis of all the approaches.

The End of a Job as We Know It

The End of a Job as We Know It | Strategies for Managing Your Business |

The concept of a job, as we know it, is starting to go away.


Over the last year I've been speaking with many corporate business and HR leaders and have heard a common theme:we need our organizations to be more agile. We need to redesign the organization so we can learn faster, communicate better, and respond more rapidly to change. This quest for the agile organization has changed the nature of what we call a job.

Trumans's insight:

This is a good article.  Note that whilst expereince and skills are important, achieving results has to be up there too. What needs to be said though, is that very often results are achieved through a collaborative effort, and that gets back to the relationships that you build with your colleagues.

I one wrote a course, called Building GREAT Relationships, where GREAT is an acronym for:



I believe the ability to build a great telationship is more necessary now than  ever before...

Yes David, a long time ago that things have changed ... finally happily. I think you gave good advice to your children, who will always be on the safe side if they focus on life and relationships.

@ Don - I read an article last week on the same subject and I think you say right that deep skills are (or should be) the currency of the job. More and more companies have understood this reality today.
Martin Gysler's comment, January 16, 2013 4:54 AM
@Trumans - Yes, I totally agree with you. Relationships and our network is more important than ever. It is sometimes simply complicated, for me, to set a limit ... :-). Your training seems to be great, if you can put together five acronyms and if those who follow the training understands the strong message sent.

How to Be a Better Coach, According to Neuroscience

How to Be a Better Coach, According to Neuroscience | Strategies for Managing Your Business |

Sure, running a business is about maximizing the bottom line, but few entrepreneurs care only about the dollars and cents. For most, going into work every day is also about making the world a slightly better place and helping your team get better at what they do.

In other words, most business owners aspire to be not just managers but coaches.

How do you learn to be a great coach?

how do you coach your insight team members?

Steve Bavister's curator insight, May 4, 2015 3:17 AM

Understanding the function of the brain is essential if you want to be effective as a coach

Bruno V Gallo's curator insight, August 3, 2015 10:35 AM

A new study finds that great coaches don't focus on finding and fixing their team's weaknesses. They do this instead.
