The article presents the 7 principles of leadership development. These principles drive the leadership development program of the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The agency's Leadership Alchemy is a program designed to develop forward thinking leaders by developing internal change catalysts who can lead the innovations that most support the agency's mission. These principles are based on the notion that leadership is a way of being and that doing things differently begins with a shift in thinking about things differently.
