Abstract

A bounded sub-field of leadership and organizational change informed by both leadership studies and organizational change studies is not evident within leadership studies. If we think in terms of a bridge between these two fields of study four metaphors may be applied ‘effective bridge’, ‘no bridge’, ‘broken bridge’ and ‘multiple pathways bridge’. In drawing conclusions about conceptualizing leadership and organizational change, firstly working at the intersection between fields of study is potentially fruitful. Secondly, preferred bridge metaphors determine how leadership and organizational change is understood. Thirdly, leadership and organizational change’s inclusion within leadership studies depends upon the metaphor.
