Abstract and Keywords
Management and leadership are intertwined constructs. Early theories of management focused on issues of power and authority, and there were attempts to provide organizational leadership through controlling the situation and the behavior of subordinates. More modern theories of leadership recognize the important role of followers in co-creating leadership in organizations, and the important role that ethics play in leadership. Historical and contemporary theories of management and leadership are reviewed, and issues of leader assessment, selection and development are discussed. Finally, attention is given to emerging leadership and management concepts, and there is discussion of future trends in leadership research and practice.
Ronald E. Riggio, Ph.D., is the Henry R. Kravis Professor of Leadership and Organizational Psychology and former director of the Kravis Leadership Institute at Claremont McKenna College.
