Highlights the number of approaches taken to leadership development and presents a framework which can be used by organizations to evaluate their current approaches and modify them to develop an integrated leadership development programme. Outlines a seven stage model which can be used to plan leadership development which is in line with the business objectives of the organization. Extends the discussion to look at how to ensure that the training/learning methods contribute to individual learning, setting out the goals of the programme and the techniques which can achieve this (job rotations, case studies, self development, etc.). Believes that this model will ensure that the leadership development programme will contribute to improved business performance by improving leadership and team skills through enhancing leaders’ self-development and self worth.
