Abstract

Purpose – This article aims to discuss who should take responsibility when it comes to harnessing and developing leadership qualities. Design/methodology/approach – The authors sought the possible existence of unique features in the developmental process of leaders, comparing a group of individuals perceived as leaders with another group distinctly perceived as non‐leaders. Findings – The evidence collected seems to indicate that theory and research in the psychology of learning, and social and developmental psychology, can provide a firm conceptual base for institutionalized processes of leader development. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives, researchers and parents alike hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy‐to‐digest format.
