This monograph is a phenomenographic study on intentional changes among Kenyan college students' conceptualization of leadership during an introductory leadership course. The interest in the subject arose from the researcher's experiences in leadership education in an African context and the need to understand the process of conceptual change and the factors influencing it. The aim of the research is to contribute to the understanding of intentional conceptual change in an African collectivist cultural setting. Conceptual change has interested researchers for a long time, but as in scientific research in general, research done in an African context is not profuse. In a similar fashion, much of the conceptual change research has been conducted from the constructivist epistemological perspective. This present thesis utilizes the phenomenographic approach both in its approach to conceptual change and as the research methodology.
