Recasting Leadership Development

To the extent that leadership is learned, it is learned through experience. This article begins with seven conclusions about the role of experience in leadership development, ponders the reasons that what is known is so rarely applied, suggests some ways to put experience at the center of leadership development efforts, and concludes with a series of recommendations for practice and for future research.

Topics covered by this article on leadership development include:
• Evidence to support the theory that leadership is learned from experience
• Classifying experiences that support leadership development
• Identifying the challenges that enable leadership development through experience
• The different lessons learned by different experiences
• Making jobs and assignments more developmental
• Matching leadership development needs to opportunities
• The role of the journey of leadership development

Here, you can download and view this report on recasting leadership development. The full report is accessible for CRF members only. If you are not a member and are interested in discussing membership, please contact Richard Hargreaves on richard@crforum.co.uk.
