One of the troubling aspects of Western leadership theories is the claim that the functions and features of leadership can be transported and legitimated across homogenous educational systems. and revolutionary movements (Rejai, 1979). between leaders, managers and followers, CLS .

Obscured by the rationalist truth claims of positivist accounts of school leadership and carried out in a predetermined field of power relations, the current rendition of this struggle has been revealed as asymmetric in its formulation – pushed to the margins by the portentous public demands that policy makes for performative acquiescence in principal practice. interdependent processes that have multiple, ambiguous and contradictory conditions, mean-, control and resistance as discursive and dialectical, practices, they argue that the meanings of such, practices are to some extent open-ended, precari-, ous, shifting and contingent. Many efforts to develop “alternative” views thus at the same time partly break with and reinforce the domination of “leadership” … Nuances involved in the efforts to revise “leadership” are easily lost as the major framing reinforces a dominating “mega-discourse,” weakening others. Thinking Differently about Leadership asks why and how we have come to understand leadership in the way we now do, and the consequences which arise from these understandings. The analysis examines (1) what ‘leadership learning’ involves when viewed through an ‘entative soft’ leadership-as-practice lens and (2) how individual attempts at exercising power and influence can be understood and represented in leadership-as-practice terms. Is it possible to see ourselves as free when we admit that we need leadership? Collinson and Tourish’s work reinforces an understanding that ‘the alternative to leadership is leadership’ by, for instance, encouraging students ‘to draw on their own experiences of leadership and followership dynamics in schools, workplaces and families’ (2015: 581). As for Nāgārjuna’s work, I choose to focus on his masterpiece and mostly valued one—Mūlamadhyamakakārikās (中論).The focus of this study is to attempt a mapping (characteristic of rhizomatics) of how their special dialectics of will/desire (Nihilism), without ever attempting to create another Absolute Truth, sets forth the non-totalizable multiplicities that characterizes the world of becoming. Combined Insurance goes further than McDonald's in attempting to standardize the workers' very selves, instilling in them adroit maneuvers to overcome customer resistance. Contemporary leadership scholars and researchers have often been questioned about the nature of their work, and its place within the academy, but much of the confusion surrounding leadership as a field of study may be attributed to a lack of understanding regarding transdisciplinary, int… Giddens’ structuration theory (1984, 1987), seeks to overcome the individual/society dualism, in social theory by rethinking the ‘dialectics of, power relations’. Psychology focuses primarily, on individuals and on their internal (psychologi-, cal) dynamics, giving much less attention to the, socially and discursively constructed nature of, leadership dynamics (Fairhurst, 2007, and, Fairhurst, Chapter 36, this volume). 179-192. Surely not!

David V. Day and Zhengguang Liu. Ray, T., Clegg, S., and Gordon, R. (2004). Where followers perceiv, such inconsistencies, they can become increas-, ingly cynical about leaders. 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. The routinization of service work has both poignant and preposterous consequences. What this change does, however, is markedly to alter the tone of the two extracts. By not being ‘critical’ enough about its own discursive practices, critical leadership studies risk reproducing the very kind of leaderism it seeks to condemn. He suggested, that voice is less likely where exit is possible and, more likely where loyalty is present and when exit, Critical researchers reveal that oppositional, practices can take numerous forms (Ackroyd and, Thompson, 1999), including strikes, ‘working to.

On behalf of the other women, Rita subsequently finds herself taking on a male-dominated trade union movement ambivalent about equal pay for women, and eventually, the UK government’s Employment Secretary, Barbara Castle. So, for example, the dialectic of control in, the context of leadership dynamics focuses on the, simultaneous interdependencies and asymmetries, between leaders and followers as well as their, ambiguous, shifting and potentially contradictory, conditions, processes and consequences. Despite changes that have been made in definitions and descriptions of educational leadership to provide a focus on gender, there is the implicit assumption that while educational leadership might be practised differently according to gender, these discourses essentially remain both raced and classed. This tradition is often referred as critical theory- meaning a special kind of social philosophy from its inception in 1923 by Felix Weil (Seiler, 2004). Leadership is a concept that starts from an assumption of authority, that there must be some people in organizations who give orders, make decisions and expect obedience.Without the acceptance of authority, there is no way to ensure that orders are taken seriously or that people will be persuaded to do anything. ‘Leader’ and ‘follower’ are increasingly replacing ‘manager’ and ‘worker’ to become the routine way to frame hierarchy within organizations; a practice that obfuscates, even denies, structural antagonisms.

The articles comprising this collection suggest that power is fundamental to leadership theory and practice. This product could help you, Accessing resources off campus can be a challenge. Today it encompasses a wide range of perspectives that are critical of traditional theories of management and the business schools that generate these theories. The paid workplace (as, well as the domestic sphere) is an important site, for the reproduction of men’s masculine power, and status. (Collinson and Hearn, 1994, 2009). Thus, traditional analytical dualisms like manager/worker or capital/labour (as opposed to leader/follower) leave rhetorical space for solidarity and radical resistance; whereas those starting to be constructed as followers might well assume that they can legitimately offer no more than (what their so-called leaders would see as) ‘constructive resistance’ (Uhl-Bien et al., 2014: 93). … It involves a complicity or process of negotiation through which certain individuals, implicitly or explicitly, surrender their power to define the nature of their nature of their experience to others. recognized, being aimed at multiple audiences, such as the media (Real and Putnam, 2005) and, customers (Leidner, 1993). 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). House, 1971). A. 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. But to keep things simple, while the pairing is hardly entirely unproblematic in itself, simply going back to the language of manager and worker seems to us to be one step in the right direction. Alternatively, we might confine our use of leadership to obviously subversive contexts. By critically explor-.

Studies suggest that followers are, frequently more knowledgeable and oppositional, than has typically been acknowledged in the. Developing such a processual leadership meaning, however, is not easy, especially as formal leaders are embedded in a business world that still supports the heroic image of a leader. ‘Critical Leadership Studies’ (Collinson, 2011) as a field of study within organisation studies, has come to be associated with research that intends to explore previously ignored issues of power, resistance, performativity, identity and gender. Critical studies emphasize that leadership, dynamics can emerge informally in more subordi-, nated and dispersed relationships, positions and, locations, as well as in oppositional forms of, organization such as trade unions (Knowles, 2007). The leader/follower dualism does not fit Marx and Engel’s list of oppositions – both leader and follower stop being merely nicer- or more fashionable-sounding synonyms for manager and worker in certain important contexts. One is left to wonder, therefore, whether the article is about leadership merely because it uses the terms leader and follower.

Indeed leadership depends on the existence of individuals willing, as a result of inclination or pressure, to surrender, at least in part, the powers to shape and define their own reality. generate subtle forms of disguised dissent. Such a reading of leadership is rarely, if ever, explicit in the corporate courses that have proliferated in recent years, nor in responses to remotely administered questionnaires that much mainstream work in the field pursues. It begins by putting critical approaches to leadership in the context of broader debates about leadership.

This paper aims to add to the recent scholarly search for African leadership philosophy to improve leadership effectiveness in Africa. Cockburn (1983) illustrates how, male-dominated shop-floor counter-cultures and, exclusionary trade union practices in the printing, industry elevated men and masculinity while sub-, ordinating and segregating women. This international meeting was hosted at Lancaster in 2003, 2005 & 2015, and has also been held at Oxford, Exeter, Cranfield, Warwick, Auckland, Birmingham, Lund, Bristol, Perth, Rome, Copenhagen, Edinburgh and Richmond Va. A number of eminent speakers from different parts of the world have delivered keynotes and papers at these meetings. It is still critical in the sense that it says uncomfortable things to those elites, i.e. His notion of the ‘dialectic of control’ holds that, no matter how asymmetrical, power relations are, dialectic of control is that leader–follower rela-, tions are likely to be characterized by shifting, interdependencies and power asymmetries.

This study is supervised by Professor Marius Van Dijke. Nevertheless, Harding’s article is already being commended as a model of writing in CLS (Collinson and Tourish, 2015; Tourish, 2015). Whereas, power and gender are sometimes assumed to be, separate, critical studies also argue that they are, inextricably linked. Recently, I was asked to speak at a business conference where I took the opportunity to talk about leadership skills and I also want to share them here with you. Good management is the backbone of successful organizations. tion of working-class manhood (e.g. in Local Government, Health and Public Services. Fairhurst (2001) highlights the, ‘primary dualism’ in leadership research as that, between the individual and the collective, arguing. a concern to examine leadership power dynamics, critical studies do not constitute a unified set of, ideas, perspectives or a single community of prac-, tice. 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’. It is as if the 2014 version were addressed primarily to and written for so-called leaders – leaders who seem to be equated, a priori, with elites. Originally published in J. Jermier, D. Knights, Collinson, D. (2003) ‘Identities and insecurities: selves at. sexual harassment of women managers in insurance sales’. The first thing that strikes us from this juxtaposition is just how radically Collinson has chosen to re-present his earlier work in the language of the leader/follower. It is important to emphasize that CLS writers who nowadays prefer to talk about leaders and followers leave no doubt that they propose a critical reading of organizational life. TY - JOUR. 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. In P. A. And they’re right to do so: earlier McKinsey research has consistently shown that good leadership is a critical part of organizational health, which is an important driver of shareholder returns. Our intent is not so much to debate what leaders and followers are, but to show what the use of these terms does; particularly when deployed as apparently routine and more-or-less unnoticed generics for hierarchical groups within organizations.

In contrast, a processual perspective views leadership as an ongoing social interaction involving all organisational actors. © 2008-2021 ResearchGate GmbH. We feel that critical leadership studies should embrace and include a plurality of perspectives on the relationship between workers and their bosses. 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.

However, this slippage between manager/leader and worker/follower is more than merely rebranding with a more fashionable label. 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. In particular, we identify two hindering dynamics that show how a leader-centred leadership meaning becomes reconstructed and reinforced over time, despite receiving training inputs on a processual leadership meaning.

When workers can be controlled through their freedoms the defenders of capitalism no longer have to crush labour resistance. Redefining themselves – the defenders of capitalism – as leaders (with workers now cast as followers) is appealing as one potential avenue towards such control, not least because it tends to hollow out classical notions of organizational politics, reducing debate about alienation and exploitation to problem solving and team building (Lears, 2015).

The emergence of Critical Leadership Studies (CLS) should have been a welcome antidote to this particular discursive practice. It challenges the prevailing conventional understanding of work, management and organisations.

Management is essential for an organized life and necessary to run all types of management. Fleming and, Spicer, 2007).

Our other main observation about the above table concerns the practice of calling people like shop-floor workers followers. 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.

Existing accounts of leadership are underpinned by two dominant approaches: functionalist studies, which have tried to identify correlations between variables associated with leadership; and interpretive studies, which have tried to trace out the meaning-making process associated with leadership. 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. Corruption, poverty, injustice, and lack of legitimacy and accountability have continued to be the images of Africa and its leadership. For instance, if we begin by thinking in terms of leader/follower, it takes us closer to a pro-hegemonic ideal: that a core part of what leaders do is to frame reality for their ‘followers’.
