This chapter distills leadership development programs into their critical components. Alignment between individual behavior and organization behavior is necessary in advance of the implementation of any developmental intervention. This alignment is viewed as a necessary but not sufficient condition for change. Development is examined as a by-product of a dialectic that is constructed purposefully. Delivered in many forms, the dialectic serves as the fulcrum that brings transformational power to leadership development programs. Leadership development is recognized as a process incorporating experiences that are crafted to compel behavioral, emotional, and intellectual transformation.
