Reimagining leadership development: A Rostian perspective

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNConference contribution with ISSN or ISBNResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Whilst the International Leadership Association awarded J.C. Rost a lifetime achievement award in 2008, his work has largely been overlooked within management and organization studies. This may be due to the radical nature of what Rost was proposing or Rost’s critical attitude towards management studies. In this paper, Rost’s potential contribution to leadership development is highlighted with particular emphasis placed upon Rost’s three central themes of influence relationships, real intended change and mutual purpose. Conclusions are drawn about Rost’s contribution specifically in terms of implications for researching leadership development which focuses beyond leaders, developing theories in terms of a kaleidoscope metaphor and the particular relevance of Rost’s writings to leadership development within public and voluntary sectors.
