Abstract and Keywords

This chapter summarizes the existing theory and research on leader training and development. The theoretical advances around the issues of leader identity and expertise development are emphasized. Then, programs of training and development research are outlined, highlighting the recent work on charting and the developmental trajectories of leaders. The team-leadership capacity can provide the resources needed for team resilience and adaptability, even under the most challenging circumstances. The results from the leader-training studies indicate that training is efficient in improving specific leadership-related skills. It seems that the role of leader identity construction is emerging as a central process in the effective development of leaders. Initial evidence reveals that individuals do not experience or benefit from leader development in the same ways. Examining issues of successful aging and their relationship to ongoing, lifelong learning and development could offer insights into how to keep older adults engaged and productive in later life.

Keywords: leader training, leader development, leader identity, expertise development, charting, leadership, learning
