Abstract

Leadership is the most written about subject in business and management and it continues to attract the attention of academics and practitioners from all walks of life to research and write about leadership. A common theme that tends to emanate from the literature is that effective leadership makes a difference and is an important, even essential factor in producing desirable outcomes for people, their teams and organisations. But what makes a 'good' leader and how can organisations develop leadership capability?
