Abstract: Social identity research shows that leadership is a process of group identity development but has not examined how leaders can develop and manage group identities in the workplace. We address this issue by introducing the 5R leadership development program. This takes leaders through a five-stage process of (1) Readying: explaining the importance of social identity processes for leadership; (2) Reflecting: ascertaining identity resources; (3) Representing: clarifying goals and aspirations associated with different subgroup identities; (4) Realizing: identifying superordinate goals and developing strategies to achieve both them and subgroup goals; and (5) Reporting: assessing progress towards goals. Results of an initial study suggest 5R is a useful framework for leadership development that translates insights from social identity theorizing into structured intervention.
