What is good Leadership Development?

This posting about Leadership Development, at Be Excellent, stimulates a number of different thoughts.

For now, let's focus on two statements:

~ "Most American businesses don't understand the difference between management training and leadership development."

~ "There is a big difference between management training and leadership development."

What do most American businesses consider a "leadership development program" to be? And why would they make an investment in it?

Contrarian OD Guy Kenny Moore has said that much of what passes for leadership development is a whole lot of hooey.

While I don't fully subscribe to the hooey school of thought, I definitely appreciate his point, that a lot of leadership development is crap.

So then: What is good Leadership Development?
