From sleeping well to being a good follower, here are five articles focusing on leadership and corporate development training.


From Danielle Westermann King: When Leadership Development Misses the Mark

“Organizations that understand this need place high priority on learning and development and, in turn, have greater revenue growth, market position and future growth potential than organizations that don’t leverage L&D as an avenue for success.”


From Gerald C. Kane and Doug Palmer: Learning and Leadership Development in the Digital Age

Today’s corporate development training and digital business environment “is faster, more distributed and more collaborative—differences that are forcing organizations to rethink how they develop leaders and improve their workforce capabilities.”


From Cassandra Fragos: 3 Transitions Even the Best Leaders Struggled With

“The capacity for reinvention is the single-most-important career attribute for executives today. Successful reinvention may look different for each of us, but if we do not attempt it, we are sure to fail.”


From Christopher M. Barnes: Sleep Well, Lead Better

“My research shows that sleep deprivation doesn’t just hurt individual performance: When managers lose sleep, their employees’ experiences and output are diminished too.”


From Kim Peters and Alex Haslam: Research: To Be a Good Leader, Start by Being a Good Follower

“There is no shortage of advice for those who aspire to be effective leaders. One piece of advice may be particularly enticing: if you want to be a successful leader, ensure that you are seen as a leader and not a follower. To do this, goes the usual advice, you should seek out opportunities to lead, adopt behaviors that people associate with leaders rather than followers (e.g., dominance and confidence), and — above all else — show your exceptionalism relative to your peers.

But there is a problem here. It is not just that there is limited evidence that leaders really are exceptional individuals. More importantly, it is that by seeking to demonstrate their specialness and exceptionalism, aspiring leaders may compromise their very ability to lead.”
