The guide is a two-phase intervention designed for leadership development through psychological capital. Each of the two phases is designed to be a stand-alone intervention. Phase 1 of the intervention can be applied to a wide array of populations including students and professionals. It is designed to build participant psychological capital. Phase 2 requires that participants be at some level of leadership responsibility where they are providing direction to followers under their direct influence. The second phase is designed to provide strategies for -- and efficacy to -- build follower psychological capital.
Both phases are best accomplished in conjunction with the Multi-rater Report of Psychological Capital so that the trainees have a perspective of how their Psychological Capital is viewed by those around them.
