Taking its theme from the fifth annual Studying Leadership conference held at Cranfield School of Management, Leadership Perspectives offers new formulations of the concept of leadership. Making a clear link between research and practice, it explores the task organisations undertake in constructing leadership concepts and developing people to rise toleadership challenges in their organisation. Drawing on the knowledge of conference contributors, plus additional authors, this work explainshow new ideas about leadership will lead to new approaches to leadership practice, leadership learning and development. This is the first of two books to emerge from this conference, taking the theme of ₁knowledge into action₂. While the second book will focus on the challenge of learning and developing leadership, this first volume offers new formulations on the concept of leadership. It also explores new leadership research, providing a nuanced understanding of leadership in context
