7 7 Leadership & Management Development Framework - Principles A progressive approach which recognises that development support is required from the moment potential leadership talent is identified through to the most experienced and senior leaders. Leadership development is an on-going process which leaders return to at different stages of their career. Leadership development activity is differentiated for different groups and individuals. Leadership occurs at all staff levels and is fundamental to successful activity. Future leadership potential is nurtured by the framework
