The authors of this impressive work examine six strategies for leadership development, along with illustrations of how each is used in practice. The strategies are: 360 feedback; feedback intensive programs; skill-based training; job assignments; developmental relationships; and hardships. They show how to use a systems approach, enhance ability to learn, and to evaluate leadership development initiatives. Other chapters are devoted to leadership growth for women and people of color, cross cultural issues, and the development of leaders for global roles. A top-notch book for the OD practitioner.

This is an excellent overview on leadership development and is a great starting point for further reading. Anyone who's taken a course at CCL will recognize the techniques referred to in the first half of the book especially the description of Feedback Intensive Programs.
Keep in mind that this is an overview and no topic is dealt with in great detail. This should provide a good foundation for exploring topics in more detail. I found the section on cross cultural differences very enlightening and am encouraged to read more on the topic.
This is not just for OD professionals but for anyone with an interest in leadership.

Perhaps the most distinguishable characteristic of the "Handbook" is its integration of complex, conceptual material with applied practical examples and illustrations. It is truly a "must have" for any human resource development professional. (permission granted by the Asheville Citizen-Times)
