Can leadership be taught? (Doh, 2003) The dramatic growth of leadership academies, institutes, and programs from political science to business and psychology to reserve officer training corps for U.S. military services makes this a compelling question. We say "yes" and then: How can it be taught? And how are leaders developed? Ours is a developmental theory for teaching leaders and suggests that emotional competence is at the heart of developing authentic leaders with personal integrity.
