Some studies assume that interventions can be readily generalized to all leaders, regardless of role. But there is increasing evidence against this proposition. In this article we asked how can the different available methods be combined and deployed for different populations for different needs. We reviewed the state of the art of the leadership development field in order to propose a typology of available LD developments that help designers and consumers make their choices. We noted that leadership development is affected by life stages and proposed a model of leadership transition and consolidation over the managerial life-cycle and we exposed how the different learning methods are intertwined with these life stages. Implications of this proposal for research on leadership development interventions are drawn.
