Leadership in the Appreciative Paradigm
Regardless of region, we see a world striving for a new way to live. We know that the traditional ways of leadership – those who knew “it” and were in control – are no longer sufficient and at the same time we see that the new generation is struggling in what the new form of leadership might be. This issue will address concepts of appreciative leadership, relational leadership, transformational leadership, servant leadership or other practices and theories of leadership that speak to similar phenomena.
