A myriad of definitions and conceptual models has been developed to understand the concept of leadership. To further contribute in broadening the knowledge, we propose a leadership framework consisting of the four Ps, namely person, participant, performance, and perspective. A content analysis of critical incidents that were retrospectively self-reported by 58 MBA and Masters of Management students in an Asian business school will be discussed. More than 200 incidents were collected and independently clustered into the four Ps. Examples of incidents will be presented. There is preliminary support for the proposed model and we a follow-up research using deep interviews with leaders to capture the essence of the clusters representing the dimensions in the proposed leadership framework.
