However, and paradoxically, calling someone a leader just because they inhabit a role, or carry out a kind of work goes against the prevailing construction of leadership in the literature. Collinson, D. L. (2005) ‘Dialectics of leadership’, Collinson, D. L. (2006) ‘Rethinking followership: a post-struc-. Unfortunately, when it comes to foundational terms like leader and follower, such reflexivity appears to be largely absent in CLS. However, no one would ever have called Rita a follower, surely – please, no! Naomi Klein's second book, The Shock Doctrine, was hailed as a "master narrative of our time," and has over a million copies in print worldwide.In the last decade, No Logo has become an international phenomenon and a cultural manifesto for the critics of unfettered capitalism worldwide. However, all three share an important blind spot: an apparently unreflexive use of leader and follower. So, rather than, as Collinson and Tourish (2015: 577) believe, being ‘fundamentally about the effective or ineffective exercise of power, authority, and influence’ we suggest that the terms leadership and followership are at root performative (Gond et al., 2015). It discusses these principles by comparing with Ubuntu and other indigenous African leadership philosophies on the one hand with UN principles of good governance on the other. This chapter reviews the emerging body of literature on critical theories of leadership. According to Zoller and Fairhurst, activists and trade unionists – among other oppositional groups – appropriate some of the influencing tools of leadership to advance causes that go against the interests of elites. It concludes by considering, the CLS challenge to contemporary leadership, theory and practice of leadership. Professor David Collinson explains how to critically study leadership. Lipmen-Blumen, (2005) extends these arguments in analysing the, ‘allure of toxic leaders’, where she contends that, followers frequently seem to be fascinated by, toxic leaders despite, and possibly even because, of, the latter’s dysfunctional personal characteris-. It also includes Smircich and Morgan’s (1982: 258) critique of leadership as the management of meaning: The leader exists as a formal leader only when he or she achieves a situation in which an obligation, expectation or right to frame experience is presumed, or offered and accepted by others. Employees privately complained, saying things like ‘this is the kind of bullshit that brings in a union’, and ‘this place is getting too Japanese around here’. The leadership development industry regularly claims to aid in developing effective, ethical leaders, using 360-degree psychometric assessments as key tools for so doing. What we are against, however, is the a priori use of leader and follower to represent different hierarchical groups – as a kind of master category for representing and understanding social and organizational dynamics.

It tends to undermine shared understandings about individuality and social obligations, sharpening the tension between the belief in personal autonomy and the domination of a powerful corporate culture. Only now we are calling the managers leaders (Ford and Harding, 2007; Martin and Learmonth, 2012; O’Reilly and Reed, 2011). Nevertheless, if Rita can usefully be thought of as a leader then she was only a leader because of the explicit and enthusiastic consent and support of her colleagues. rule’, output restriction, ‘working the system’, 1995). feature of leadership dynamics (Fletcher, 2004). leadership practices (see also Guthey and Jackson, North American societies typically subscribe to, meritocratic principles based on individual, privilege, for example, kinship and age. gender, ethnicity, origin, etc.) Login failed.

If people are led well and inspired by their leaders, their commitment and effort will be guaranteed to a degree not possible if rewarded solely in terms of gains of status or money. The book offers critical understandings of key areas of management theory and practice such as accounting, strategic management, marketing, business ethics and environmental management. They illustrate, for example, how power is enacted in the decisions, statements and claims that leaders make, in their practices and the many ways they influence followers, and through the organizational structures, resources, information and technologies they have at their disposal. Framing the field: Alternatives to leadership, leadership? We apply a critical perspective on leadership development discourses and practices to the case of student leadership development programs in the US universities and colleges. 5 critical skills for effective global leadership Image Component needs to be configured.

Take the opening scene of the1960 British film Saturday Night and Sunday Morning (available at the time of writing on https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zJAeb0wiQjA). The prominence attached to this feature of CLS certainly reflects a critical point of view because rather than reproducing officially sanctioned corporate hierarchies it challenges and subverts them.

She certainly never got more pay than the others, nor got any sort of other reward. Create a link to share a read only version of this article with your colleagues and friends. The majority of leadership studies, are North American in origin and much research, (unconsciously) articulates (positivist) US values, (Hartog and Dickson, 2004). Key issues of power/knowledge relations across these areas are addressed and new agendas both for these fields and for management studies as a whole are introduced. With service sector work becoming increasingly important in American business, her timely study is particularly welcome. An a priori use of formulations like leader and follower is as useful to those at the top of big business – and as congruent with their interests – as other forms of neoliberal rhetoric; say, the redefinition of job insecurity as free agency or the portrayal of billionaire tycoons as regular guys. I hypothesize that acceptance of the idealized rational self leads philosophers to underestimate the influence of implicit bias on their own judgments and prevents them from enacting the reforms necessary to minimize the effects of implicit bias on institutional decision-making procedures.

Just as Arthur Seaton and Sergeant Warden did, she clearly despised those, like Mr Clarke (one of the Ford bosses) who were supposed to be in charge of her. turalist analysis of follower identities’, Collinson, D.

Well, what about the 2010 British film (and subsequent successful London West End musical) Made in Dagenham? The terms ‘leader’ and ‘follower’ are increasingly replacing expressions like ‘manager’ and ‘worker’ and becoming routine ways to talk about hierarchical groups within organizations. This shift to discourse about leaders could be attributed partly to a mushrooming literature on leadership (Alvesson and Spicer, 2014; Grint, 2005; O’Reilly and Reed, 2010; Tourish, 2013). Unfortunately, this possibility is not – as far as we can see – even raised by Collinson and Tourish. This leads to the conclusion that the leadermanager is someone who is both powerful and powerless. For more details, please contact the researcher. A Feminist Communicology of Organization. They, show how control is not so much a ‘dependent, feature of leadership structures, cultures and, practices. Thus the questions, why a manager in a particular situation is successful while in the other situation is unsuccessful, is answered by this theory.

It is still critical in the sense that it says uncomfortable things to those elites, i.e. The interplay between the particularity of care and the universality of justice highlights the significance of power, not least because it highlights the power dynamics of the choice over who receives our attention and solicitude. Additionally, we generate insights on two patterns that explain why it is so difficult to abandon a heroic image by revealing the crucial role of one’s sense of self-as-a-leader. The first is Harding (2014), a paper we use to explore our claim that Critical Leadership Studies seems to be different from Critical Management Studies only because of its preference to use leader and follower – and that manager and worker would do just as well – at least in terms of semantics. suppression of gender conflict in organizations’, Meindl, J., Ehrlich, S.

They provide extended examples of the leadership of dissent, focusing ‘on the role of perceived unfairness and injustice as a key resource of dissent mobilization’ (2007: 1340). In other words, the leader/follower dualism is hard to read as anything other than a denial of the central tenet of Marxian-inflected organizations analyses – the structured antagonism between capital and labour. Managing life means getting things done to achieve life's objectives and managing an organization means getting things done with and through other people to achieve its objectives.

These critical readings of CLS’s representational practices are reinforced when we observe that the exponential growth in leadership’s appeal since the 1980s has occurred during a period which also witnessed the rise of neoliberalism and the consequent widespread defeat of trade union power (Brown, 2015). We feel that critical leadership studies should embrace and include a plurality of perspectives on the relationship between workers and their bosses. leadership’, in G. R. Goethals and G. L. J.

However, exemplary work includes for us landmark papers such as Meindl et al.’s (1985: 79) analysis of the romance of leadership, something which is: ‘hinted at in the observations made by a number of social and organizational analysts who have noted the esteem, prestige, charisma, and heroism attached to various conceptions and forms of leadership’.

M3 - Chapter. As Collinson and Tourish (2015: 577) argue: [I]t makes sense to see management as somewhat more concerned with day-to-day operational activities than leadership [nevertheless] the term leadership [as opposed to management] has heuristic value in that it captures the approach, perceptions, and interactional dynamics of varied organizational actors when they encounter uncertain environments, powerful others, and complex strategic dilemmas, and in which the salience of leadership issues is therefore heightened. As Alvesson and Spicer (2014: 40; italics in original) argue: In many instances, embracing the idea of leadership does not involve any significant change to practice but merely indicates an interest in relabeling managerial work as “leadership” to make it sound more fashionable and impressive.

Finally, we examine the work of Collinson and Tourish (2015) to demonstrate the dangers of the universalization of leadership that an unreflexive use of leader and follower can imply – even in an article that is otherwise highly successful in critiquing mainstream leadership studies.

We draw on Foucault’s notion of pastoral power to argue that these quasi-therapeutic practices help to produce and to normalize what we describe as a confessional culture of leadership development that prepares would-be student leaders to submit themselves to similarly or even more psychologically demanding regimes of governmentality in the workplace after they graduate. I’ve now written several books on leadership … Anarchist thinkers believe in a collective form of organization that does not depend on assumptions about authority, about the need to be led and to have leaders (Walter, 2016). We can see that a case might perhaps be made for calling such people followers built on notions like multiple subjectivities or identities. as well as co-leadership (Alvarez and Svejenova, 2005).

Indeed, given the extent to which they share strikingly similar unitary and individualizing impulses, the current popularity of the language of leadership might be read as a direct analogue for today’s neoliberal consensus.

Critical Leadership Studies Leadership Mainstream Effect: Abstract: This paper critically examines the effect that mainstream leadership ideas have on the leadership development initiatives in a highly technical, engineering dominated, Swedish public sector organisation. The study highlights that participants are not given equal scope to exercise power within the emerging, hybrid agency orienting the flow of leadership, and that one task of leadership learning at an individual level is to develop reflexive knowledge about one’s own and others’ contribution to the unfolding of leadership process. They can also exercise po, ‘managing meaning’, and defining situations in, ways that suit their purposes (Smircich and, Morgan, 1982). that studies typically concentrate either on leaders, in ways that overlook the dynamics of the collec-, basis for action. Covering a diverse set of theories and approaches, critical perspectives hold that, whether for good and/or ill, and whether focussing on individuals and/or collectives, power in all its forms is a central, under-examined issue for leadership studies. I am often dismayed when I observe that those who are charged with leadership so often struggle to know what leadership means, and what it takes. In this chapter, we discuss how authority is created and how it is possible to challenge it. Leadership studies focusing on race–ethnicity provide particularly rich contexts to illuminate the human condition as it pertains to leadership. Globalization may, facilitate trade and global capital flows and more, integrated financial markets, and reduce transpor-, tation costs. The emergence of Critical Leadership Studies (CLS) should have been a welcome antidote to this particular discursive practice. After all, for every leader, there is at least one person who is being led, at least one follower. This is a valuable undertaking because, in contemporary industrial societies, it is through such structures that many people are often constrained and dominated. In other words, they fail to signal any reflexivity about their representational practices. These critical studies raise important questions, for the development of CLS, highlighting the, significance of gender and other aspects of, diversity and inequality in leadership dynamics, as, well as the conceptual value of intersectionality, simultaneity and asymmetry. 13. A primary purpose of this SI is to showcase how, why and with what consequences power dynamics can reflect and reinforce leadership practices: in short, the articles illustrate how leadership and power are frequently inextricably-linked. and diversity management’.
