In many adolescent developmental models, it is proposed that having a clear and positive identity is an important developmental task for adolescents. In this chapter, the conception of positive and healthy identity and the related theories are outlined and the determinants and effects of having a positive and healthy identity are presented. The relationship between healthy and positive identity and leadership is then explored. Finally, the question to know how positive and healthy identity can be promoted is examined. Issues surrounding the ways of how to teach students to develop the attribute of having a clear and positive identity as a leader are discussed.
