Abstract : This report examines relationships between the leadership of entering leaders and antecedent measures of personality, ability, temperament, interpersonal style, experience, and physical fitness. The data described a sample of cadets/students during their first 2 1/2 years of education and military training at a state military college. The primary purpose was to track longitudinally leader development and emergence and, in this reporting of the data, to identify antecedents which differentiate cadets characterized by a transformational leadership style from those cadets more characterized by transactional styles of leadership. Results suggested potential discriminators, but more definitive trends will possibly appear as the cadets progress in education and transition into positions with greater leadership discretion.
