Leadership and the undermining of lasting firm-level capabilities

J. Sillince, Sarah Gilmore

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


This paper suggests that leadership, as a source of competitive advantage, can actually work against the development of lasting firm-level capabilities. That is, to the extent that leaders want to maintain their own uniqueness, and thus their viability in the marketplace, this actually prevents them from using their capability to build a lasting organization. This is not something that has been addressed in the RBV or managerial capabilities literature (e.g. Castanias & Helfat, 2001).
