Leadership development has been in the research spotlight for several decades now; however, it remains a mystery why to date only few studies have taken a longitudinal perspective. This far leader development literature has also mainly focused on the acquisition of well-defined skills, while ignoring the deeper structures of adult development. To address these gaps, the thesis advances and empirically tests various components of an integrative model of leader development grounded in an identity perspective. The three empirical studies help to advance a more comprehensive understanding of how leaders develop over time and which factors influence this development.
