Here's a review of my posts on leadership and talent development this week. There were posts on big data, the wonder of "I wonder," talent development as pinball, and wondering about what happened to Ron. There were also pointers to other resources by and about leaders, on talent development, to top posts from the independent business blogs, and my Boss's Tips of the Day.

Big Data means big promises but also big danger. Here are some articles and posts to help you think about Big Data and what it means for you and for all of us.
5/5/13: Leadership Reading to Start Your Week
Here are choice articles on hot leadership topics culled from the business schools, the business press and major consulting firms, to start off your work week. They're about leadership and strategy, success and failure and important issues of the day. This week, I'm pointing you to articles about leadership, Tim Cook, innovation, product management, serendipity, professors as brands, eliminating long lines, and the workplace of the future. There's also a special piece on Charles Handy.
The Wonder of "I wonder"
Innovative companies and teams respect the power of curiosity.
5/7/13: By and About Leaders
Studying individual leaders is a great way to learn about leadership. Think of each article as a mini-case study in leadership. This week I'm pointing you to posts Fred Deluca, Jeffrey Weinstein, Wendy Lea, Candace and Charles Nelson, Robert Diamond, Shellye Archambeau, David Goldberg, and Steve Case.
5/8/13: A Midweek Look at the Independent Business Blogs
Every week I select five excellent posts from this week's independent business blogs. This week, I'm pointing you to posts on lessons learned the hard way, honoring yourself, thinking about the humans, making leadership more human, and how to take an interest in people.
What happened to Ron?
Once upon a time, everyone thought Ron was going to be a star.
5/10/13: Stories and Strategies from Real Life
Some of the best learning happens when you read stories real people and real companies. Read them for ideas, for lessons, and inspiration. This week's stories and strategies from real life are about Intel, HP, movie theaters, Donaldson Company, and Sony.
Talent Development as Pinball
I spent an awful lot of time standing in front of a pinball machine, feeding it nickels, flipping the flippers, watching the ball, and listening to the score ring up. Scores on most machines reached astronomical levels, but pinball wasn't about the score as much as getting to play again.
5/9/13: Top Talent Development Posts this Week
Every week, I review blogs and other publications that cover talent development to find the very best talent development posts. This week, you'll find pointers to pieces on redesigning your leadership development program, recruiting, why human-capital-smart manufacturers outperform their peers, and big data in hiring.
When you follow me on Twitter you'll receive a stream of pointers to interesting blog posts, articles, and resources throughout each business day.
I'm writing blog posts for two clients. I'm helping working on a book about what Professor Clay Christensen says could be "more important than disruption." I'm writing a training manual for a client and coaching two authors through the process of writing and publishing their first book.
If you're interested in writing a book, hiring someone to write for you, or just improving your own writing, you should check out my Zero Draft blog about creating or acquiring the writing that makes a business or career grow.
If you want to get a book done or improve your performance as a boss, let's talk about options. My coaching calendar currently has space open.
