Leadership Roles & Role Models

Phil Hodgson and Randall White review how leadership has been understood over the past five decades and offer three broad ways to describe the ways leaders approach the world. Drawing on their research into leaders coping with uncertainty and ambiguity and including possible role models from outside the business community, they offer eight future personal ‘enablers’ which will help leaders be more effective when facing ambiguity and uncertainty.
