Main Abstract Content: StateOfTheArt:Research on leader development aims at facilitating the development of leadership capabilities and to promote the transfer of learning into effective leadership (Day & Dragoni, 2015). Peus and colleagues (2010) outlined that ethically-oriented leadership is an important part of effective leadership. This symposium aims at integrating research streams on leadership development and value-oriented approaches to leadership.
NewPerspectives/Contributions:In line with recent discussions, this symposium will focus on both a) the leaders and the values and beliefs they bring and b) development approaches to facilitate value-oriented approaches to leadership:
Egorov and colleagues examine leaders’ and followers’ moral foundations and the importance of their (in)congruence in relation to ethical leadership. 
Similarly, Solinger and colleagues focus on the dynamic leader-follower (in)congruence between what is framed and perceived as morally right.
Schmid will present findings on the dark side of this: narcissists in leadership positions and their implicit leadership theories.
In their case study, Kark and Preser discuss the challenges of developing collective leadership from a critical feminist perspective.
Netzel and colleagues present the design and outcomes of a training to enable leaders to “see beyond their own nose” and focus on interdisciplinary perspective taking.
Knipfer and colleagues uncover the learning process through which leaders make sense of challenging leadership situations in order to derive lesson learned for the future.   
ResearchPracticalImplications:We seek to capture different approaches to leader development in this symposium, while focusing on the common threat: Developing leaders with values. In doing so, we hope to stimulate critical and constructive debates.
