Social Media and Management Development

How do you develop managers? Train them. Coach them. Give them challenging assignments. The list of approaches goes on.

Recently, while chairing a webcast on Management Development, I found myself thinking, What about social media? Is there a role for social media in a comprehensive approach to developing managers?

In today's networked world of virtual organizations, social media has to come into the management development picture.

For example, how do you manage at a distance, say a global team that has members in different countries, different time zones, and different cultures? What technology can you use to provide social linkage that builds the cohesion you need to develop a fully functioning team?

What do you think?
