The changes in University students after taking a subject on leadership and intrapersonal development (?Tomorrow's Leaders? at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University) are presented in this chapter. Adopting a pre-experimental design (one group pretest-posttest design), 1,029 students responded to a questionnaire assessing different aspects of development, including measures of positive youth development and life satisfaction. While students showed positive changes in self-determination, thriving and life satisfaction, their scores declined in some measures of positive youth development. The present findings are consistent with the previous findings that the subject is able to promote the holistic development of University students in Hong Kong, but it also generated some odd findings to be clarified in future studies.
