CLS recognize that leaders exercise, considerable control, and that their power can, have contradictory and ambiguous outcomes that, leaders either do not always understand or of, which they are unaware. Critical perspectives have the potential to develop new insights into the dynamics of leadership and followership by exploring their constructed, asymmetric, situated and contested nature.

There is no loss in meaning or resolution with these changes – showing how manager and worker here are direct synonyms for leader and follower. We conclude with a call for future research on the central role of such leadership development practices—and the institutions, industries, and actors that promote them—in folding together the ways that individuals seek to claim agency and to develop themselves as leaders with the ways that organizations function to constrain that agency and to govern them as willing but compliant subjects. organizational cultures and practices generally, and in shaping the models, styles, language, cul-, tures, identities and processes of leadership and, management more particularly (Collinson and, Hearn, 1996).

Lead- ers are often described as being charismatic and being capable of making people feel they are important to a company or other type of organization. Social identity theorists argue that effective, leaders are typically perceived as ‘prototypical’, 2003). To be an effective leader in business, you must possess traits that extend beyond management duties. Critical Leadership.

Just, as workplace resistance may paradoxically repro-, duce the very conditions of control that give rise to, opposition, critical writers may question specific, dualisms, but simultaneously reinforce others. However, they appear to overlook the possibility that at the root of the problem may lie the very terms themselves: that leader and follower semantically entail coalescence. Jepson, D.

What we are against, however, is the a priori use of leader and follower to represent different hierarchical groups – as a kind of master category for representing and understanding social and organizational dynamics. The, This paper aims to explore the correspondences between the dialectical analysis (the unique way of logical argumentation) of Nietzsche’s will and that of Deleuze’s desire—the discursive axis of two influential thinkers whose critiques of representation dominate the formation of postmodern theory and beyond. about the complex dynamics of leadership. Covering a diverse set of theories and approaches, critical perspectives hold that, whether for good and/or ill, and whether focussing on individuals and/or collectives, power in all its forms is a central, under-examined issue for leadership studies. This framing forecloses radical resistance and is more easily assimilated with dominant albeit unexamined ideals in the leadership literature.

For us, this movie subverts the mainstream notions of both leader and follower in interesting ways – while also linking notions of leadership with ideas about capitalism and patriarchy. For example, situational leadership views followers through, the rather static and objectified categories of.

Critical management studies (CMS) is a largely left-wing and theoretically informed approach to management and organisation studies. What we call things sanctions certain forms of discourse and knowledge, while disqualifying other possible ways of knowing and being in the world. One of the troubling aspects of Western leadership theories is the claim that the functions and features of leadership can be transported and legitimated across homogenous educational systems. Whereas white middle-class women, are often found in managerial and higher-paid, work, women of colour typically predominate in, lower-paid positions. These, arguments in turn raise important questions about, the meaning of resistance, about who resists, how, why and when they do so, what strategies inform, their practices, and what outcomes ensue. resistance in contemporary organizations’.

They also remind readers of ‘the twin perils of hype and hubris’ (580) in teaching students to be leaders, along with the need for ‘the teaching of leadership … to go beyond a “rotten apple” theory of dysfunctionality and corruption to examine the barrel within which the apples have soured’ (586). For example, what was once ‘management development’ has frequently become ‘leadership development’; ‘senior management teams’ have often morphed into ‘senior leadership teams’ and CEOs typically present themselves, apparently unquestioningly, as their institution’s ‘leader’ (and are generally described as such in the media).

I discuss ways that the idealized rational self is susceptible to broader critiques of ideal theory, and I consider some of the ways that the picture functions as a tool of active ignorance and color-evasive racism. Indeed, there remains a significant, challenge for CLS to examine the interrelations, between multiple inequalities and to show how, This in turn raises complex questions about how, to theorize the interrelations between multiple dia-, lectics within particular practices and contexts.

Furthermore, given that many workers are indifferent to (and others despise) their bosses, assuming workers are ‘followers’ of organizational elites seems not only managerialist, but blind to other forms of cultural identity.

We say re-present, because throughout the whole of the 1988 paper he used neither term (leader nor follower) at all. One thing that did unite the newly up-titled managers with the clinicians, however, was a shared intuition: that an apparently simple change in job title – from administrator to manager – represented a shift in power dynamics (Bresnen et al., 2014; Learmonth, 2005), one that would serve the interests of some (e.g. In Paradox and the School Leader, I have taken the constitution of principals under conditions of neoliberal governmentality to be fixed by the ontology, epistemology and practice of principal subjectivity. This is significant because at the same time as editing out terms which potentially signal divergent interests (e.g. As opposed to a leader in a corporate setting, Rita was not a boss in any sense. Labels are never innocent though. We feel that critical leadership studies should embrace and include a plurality of perspectives on the relationship between workers and their bosses. Indeed, given the extent to which they share strikingly similar unitary and individualizing impulses, the current popularity of the language of leadership might be read as a direct analogue for today’s neoliberal consensus. This chapter explores the growing impact of Critical Leadership Studies (CLS). Yet insights about the leadership experience of people of color from context-rich research within education, communications and black studies … In so doing, critical approaches also, question the reliance in mainstream studies on the, artificial and excessive separation between leader. By which we mean, in a nutshell, that if someone is called a leader or a follower often enough the very act itself tends to bring about what it says; typically to the bosses’ benefit and to workers’ disadvantage.

These features all signal leadership as a problem in itself, something which is hardly the mainstream view. We examine the Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire, a widely used 360-degree tool that measures transformational leadership, as an illustrative case study to substantiate these criticisms. Our aim in this paper is to demonstrate the problematic effects that accompany the routine use of a leader/follower rhetoric – what one might call the language of leadership – especially in the context of critical leadership studies (CLS) research. Within the mainstream paradigm there are signifi-, cant differences between theories such as the fol-. Despite their, espoused concern to critique the exercise of power, and control, many CMS writers ignore the study of, leadership, focusing more narrowly on manage-, ment and organization.

In discussing how musicians such as Duke Ellington, Miles Davis, Art Blakey and Winton Marsalis might be thought of as ‘leaders’ the authors move decisively away from any sort of corporate setting and into an arena where leaders generally emerge with the consent and enthusiasm of their musical peers. CLS also challenge both, mainstream and critical researchers to be more, reflexively aware of their underlying (and often, implicit) theoretical assumptions and how these, can shape leadership theory, research, de, ment and practice. We suggest, therefore, that CLS stops trying. This paper aims to add to the recent scholarly search for African leadership philosophy to improve leadership effectiveness in Africa.

It draws on a co-constructed (auto)ethnographic account of an individual’s longitudinal experience of leadership in the context of an international development project in Laos. Professor Collinson also explains how leadership has changed over time. He discusses different theoretical perspectives of leadership and explains how the critical perspective fits into the current research landscape. If people are led well and inspired by their leaders, their commitment and effort will be guaranteed to a degree not possible if rewarded solely in terms of gains of status or money. Today it encompasses a wide range of perspectives that are critical of traditional theories of management and the business schools that generate these theories.

The routinization of service work has both poignant and preposterous consequences. We draw on Foucault’s notion of pastoral power to argue that these quasi-therapeutic practices help to produce and to normalize what we describe as a confessional culture of leadership development that prepares would-be student leaders to submit themselves to similarly or even more psychologically demanding regimes of governmentality in the workplace after they graduate. Fleming’s (2005), research in an Australian call centre found that, in, the face of a corporate culture which treated, workers like children, employees constructed.

This particular line is probably a reflection of the preoccupations and cultural scripts of the early 21st century when the screenplay was written (although men referring to adult women as ‘girls’ is no doubt, rather more characteristic of the 1960s). The reader is left to resolve the contradiction within their formulation – presumably by concluding that at the level of identity the person is a follower – and that their dissenting and resistant behaviours must merely be temporary aberrations.
