Dugan & Komives (2007) provide ways to assist student in developing leadership skills:: 1. Leadership development should include opportunities for deliberate discussions on a wide range of issues.

Leadership Styles According to Hersey and Blanchard, there are four main leadership styles which are paired against four levels of maturity.

The mentor and coach (OJT trainer) need to acquire the knowledge and skills of mentoring and coaching; to learn the process of making meaning from experience and assist the individual (technician) to construct their own meaning and take account for their action.

Using the Kolb’s(1984) reflective model as an example, the OJT trainer need to help the technician to decipher concrete experience to meaningful concept through reflection and translate the new concept into action. A technician who is guided through this cycle by the OJT trainer would demonstrate a change in cognitive, behavior, learning and practice.

Transformational leadership refers to the leader moving the follower beyond immediate self-interests through idealized influence (charisma), inspiration, intellectual stimulation, or individualized consideration.
Pull and push strategies can be used, too (Moshinskie, 2001).Moshinskie (2001) describes push as requiring the completion of a course and monitoring progress.
