Abstract/Summary This chapter reports on how a group of EFL teachers developed leadership skills by participating in a professional development (PD) program. The study is based on a transformative PD model using a Community of Practice (CoP) framework. Data were collected from multiple sources: (1) interviews with the teachers who volunteered to participate in the CoP; (2) audio transcriptions of ten PD meetings; (3) blogs, (4) reflective journals, and (5) a follow-up electronic interview six months after the teachers completed the PD program. The analysis of the data showed that the participants took charge of their professional development and developed leadership skills through collaborative activities, social interaction, reflection, and sharing ideas within the group.
