Effective leadership has a significant impact on the ability of organizations to implement and sustain strategic change initiatives and meet performance expectations. Many organizations devote considerable resources and energy to develop effective leadership capacity through extensive training programs. This paper aims to examine the impact of the Full Range Leadership Development Program (FR-LDP) on effective leadership behavior and leadership outcome performance. The participants were 31 middle managers at a Thai furniture company, who attended a six-month development program of three alternating training sessions and on-the-job practice. Integrated multi-methods with action research design were employed, including training workshop, assessment of multi-rater feedback, peer coaching, and self- and group reflections. The 360-degree feedback survey of the MLQ 5X Short was used to collect data that measure change in effective leadership (transformational leadership and active transactional leadership) and the overall leadership outcome performance of both pre- and post OD interventions. The study revealed that the FR-LDP intervention was effective in improving middle managers’ effective leadership and overall leadership outcome performance. Participants perceived it as a reliable intervention that can prepare them to perform effective leadership in their normal workplace setting.
