Responsible Leadership in Global Business: A Contingency Approach
IOU Working Paper No. 106
56 Pages Posted: 12 Mar 2010
The paper advances an understanding of responsible leadership as a political conception and offers an agenda for future research in this field. Our conceptualization of responsible leadership draws on deliberative practices and discursive conflict resolution, combining the macro-view of the business firm as a political actor with the micro-view of leadership. We discuss the concept in relation to existing leadership concepts (e.g. authentic, ethical, transformational, servant leadership). Further, we propose antecedents, outcomes and moderators that can affect or are affected by such an understanding of responsible leadership.
