Chapter 5: Knowledge development of leadership
This chapter looks at leaders as a function in society, and tries to define the characteristic thoughts and behaviours of people trying to excel in pursuing leadership. It explores contextual theories of the leadership phenomenon and its results and effects, and the concept that understanding followers better leads to a clearer understanding of what leadership actually is. The chapter ends by categorising leaders as considering followers, versus understanding them as co-creators of leader-follower outcomes; this concept guides the rest of the book.
