Abstract and Keywords

Leadership continues to dominate the focus of individuals seeking to understand and advance organizations, and thus the literature on it has attempted to provide a solution for seemingly endless problems that confront organizations. This review aims to further advance understanding of the interrelationships between leaders, their followers, and the contemporary challenges that face them by identifying the current state of play and the indisputable but not undebatable leadership ideas. It also explains how the leadership phenomenon has been sliced up, and where contemporary leadership knowledge is going. While previous reviews have assessed leadership knowledge as being very complex, not complete, and difficult to apply, the current review presents several themes that are indisputable but not undebatable, in order to establish the knowledge boundaries of leadership and enable future needs to be identified.

Keywords: leadership ideas, organizations, challenges, leadership knowledge, future needs
