Definition: Leadership development is typically embedded in other types of community capacity-building strategies and attempts to engage the participation and commitment of current and potential leaders, provide them with opportunities for building skills, connect them to new information and resources, enlarge their perspectives on their community and how it might change, and help them create new relationships. (Chaskin, 27) Apply: Leadership development can be used as a training tool for a small group of community members to build solidarity and learn how to work together to help achieve goals for their community. Even if only a few members participate in the leadership development training, their participation can be useful to the entire community. A group of community members empowered with leadership skills can potentially provide broad representation for the community and engage community members in realizing strategic goals and objective. Adapt: Leadership development cultivated in small groups (cadres), such as in the example above, can also play an important role in business, to train managers and other employees to work together to achieve the strategic goals of the business. In the same way as with community development, leadership development can be used in business to provide multiple points of leverage within the organization and engage employees in working towards a common goal.
