Abstract: Qualified managers who could respond quickly to internal issues and external competitions, serve as important cornerstones of any sustainable organization. Therefore, leadership has been long play a central role in human resource management. However, past research shows that a person holding higher ‘Motivation to Lead (MTL)’ may not have sufficient degree of ‘Motivation to Develop Leadership (MTDL)’ or ‘Self-Development of Leaders (SDL).’ On the other hand, someone holding a higher MTDL may have lower MTL The main purposes of this study were to investigate whether MTL has any association with Motivation to MTDL and SDL of workers. There were four steps in this study. The first step developed questionnaires from literatures. The second step asked senior managers conducting expert validity. The third step was reviewers for face validity. The last step requested 102 workers from public service and schools completing the survey. Data analysis included one-way ANOVA, Person’s product moment correlation, and multiple regression analysis. Major results show that Workers’ MTL positively affects their SDL and MTDL; and that the relationship between MTL and SDL was mediated by MTDL. Finally, suggestions based upon conclusions were provided for slection of manager candidates and suggestions for future research.
