A new model for promoting leadership development in programs emphasizes individuals' psychological development. The model, which is intended for use by individuals responsible for leadership development in organizations or by leadership development program planners/evaluators, is based on a cyclic process of three time-linked categories: readiness for development, developmental processes, and outcomes. First, individuals' readiness for development is assessed by evaluating them with respect to a series of trait, state, environmental, and sociocultural readiness factors. The assessment results are used to design a leadership development program based on the following five requisite, interwoven processes: experience, disequilibrium, equilibrium, construction, and potentiation. The model specifies the following categories of potential leadership development program outcomes: competencies and taking action, meaning structures, the particular kind of superordinate meaning structures termed developmental stages, and holding environments. Each category must be considered when programs are planned, implemented, followed up, and/or evaluated. The model is currently being used to design a new organizational simulation to help individuals develop by responding to scenarios representative of emerging organizational issues. (The bibliography lists 70 references. Appended are a case example of applying the model to an individual in a development program and an example of one concept of stages of development.) (MN)
