Note: Although Psychological Capital (PsyCap) can be a useful resource for developing leaders, research also shows that PsyCap is a domain-specific. This means that to maximize the potential of PsyCap, one has to adjust this concept to fit with a specific context, which in this case is leader development.

We have recently published an article on Journal of Leadership and Organizational Studies, “Psychological Capital for Leader Development.” We discuss in detail of how PsyCap can be applied to the leader development context.
