MGT 506 Disc 2: Lifecycle of Leadership Development

There are four “E” phases to the “Lifecycle of Leadership Development” process that leaders go through.
The most basic phase is the “embryonic leader” phase where leaders observe the leadership skills of others.
The next phase is the “evolving leader” phase where leaders develop or “fine-tune” their natural propensity to influence, motivate, and empower followers.
The next phase is the “effective leader” phase where leaders feel comfortable leading teams, making big decisions, and creating new opportunities.
The final phase is the “enlightening leader” phase where seasoned leaders are able to influence or teach new leaders who are at the embryonic stage. This ongoing cycle produces leaders who are able to reach the enlightening phase and give back to others.
For this threaded discussion, please describe where you are the lifecycle of leadership development process and where you see yourself in three years. Justify your answer by relating it to the literature you read in this module, and by other background readings. Then, explain how you will make the transition (e.g., more education or experience) to the next level. This can become in essence a “Leadership Development Plan” for yourself.
