Practitioner's Corner: Leadership Emergence Theory In The Corporate Context
Source: Regent University
Numerous leadership theories describe the characteristics, values, attitudes, and behaviors that are indicative of leadership. However, Avolio and Gardner (2005) asserted that the actual process by which individuals develop leadership has not been adequately studied. Lord and Hall (2005) contended that this may be because the theories have neglected to address the deeper aspects of character that develop over a lifetime. The findings from this research provide insight that can be used by practitioners to broaden corporate leadership development approaches, enhance executive coaching programs, revitalize mentoring initiatives, and improve succession planning strategies.
