Abstract:

This thesis is a Human Resource Development project designed to train leaders in communication skills and behaviors that will produce organizational involvement in subordinates. It develops a concept of leadership called Developmental Leadership which stresses the importance of interpersonal relations and relationship building between leader and subordinate as a critical step in influencing and impacting upon the subordinate. The concept is developed in an organizational climate where the leader has responsibilities to his superiors and the organization and to this subordinates. As such, developmental leadership stresses subordinate development, both individually and organizationally. The goal of developmental leadership is to achieve internalization of organizational goals in the subordinate. This is done by getting the subordinate involved in the organization to which he belongs which is the focus of the training design. The communication skills and behaviors addressed in the design emphasize personal power as the means to influence subordinates and gain involvement. Author
