Abstract : Individual self-awareness is a strategic leader's greatest asset, and the importance of efforts to enhance such awareness is clearly demonstrated by research concluding that leaders have significant effects on the competitive advantage of organizations. Organizations that ensure leader development are degrees better at mission accomplishment than those that focus their attention elsewhere. Optimizing strategic leader development efforts, therefore, is a fundamental challenge for almost all large organizations in today's environment. Some observers have argued that developing leaders should be the predominant strategy in organizations that wish to excel in the future. Other researchers postulate that the entire body of literature on transformational leadership should focus on activities specifically designed to create differing types of leaders. Consequently, the development of leaders at every level becomes the priority of any organization that depends on achieving a competitive advantage for long-term success.
