Balancing The Leadership Equation - Good Organization And Holding Leaders To Account
Leadership studies invariably focus on only part of the leadership equation. Studies generally cover individual leaders, particularly those at the top of an organization. They are prone to ignore an important part of the leadership equation - the context in which a person has to lead. Furthermore leadership is needed throughout an organization, not just at the top. This is distributed leadership. If it is not effective throughout the organization the negative impact multiplies as the number of ineffective leaders increases. But little attention seems to be focused on this impact of wider leadership capability.
