  • 4 Things Introverts Do that Makes Them Effective Leaders By Margarita Tartakovsky

  • Getting beyond the BS of leadership literature By McKinsey and Company
    This will resonate with many people who read books on leadership. The basic premise is that most books oversimplify leadership and offer very few actionable ideas for today's growing leaders. The authors look at a few books they like, and pull out some central ideas from each one. (Added: 29-Jan-2016 Hits: 789 )

  • Leadership Theories - Eight Major Leadership Theories By Kendra Cherry
    Actually, more like a quick summary of eight different leadership models or approaches. It's interesting that there are so many divergent approaches to the Psychology of leading. Good place to start though. (Added: 19-Oct-2011 Hits: 1617 )
  • The Evolutionary Psychology of Leadership:Theory, Review, and Roadmap. Organizational Psychology Review By Van Vugt, M
    Evolutionary leadership theory (ELT) argues that humans possess specialized psychological mechanisms for solving coordination problems through leadership and followership. We discuss the evolutionary functions and psychological processes underlying leadership, and how to study leadership and followership from an integrated evolutionary perspective. An evolutionary perspective offers novel insights into major barriers to leadership effectiveness in organizations. These obstacles include (1) mismatches between modern and ancestral environments, (2) evolved cognitive biases affecting leader decision-making and (3) innate psychological mechanisms designed to dominate and exploit other individuals. Understanding the evolved psychological mechanisms underlying leadership, in terms of adaptive functions, mismatches, and psychological processes, is critical for the development and integration of leadership theory, research, and practice.

  • The New Psychology of Strategic Leadership By Giovanni Gavetti
    Gavetti, aiming at Porter's influence on strategic leadership begins the article as follows: I suggest that strategic leaders must also be practitioner psychologists who expertly analyze and manage their own and othersí thought processes. To broaden the strategistís role in this way, I pursue an interpretation of the competitive game that differs from Porterís. (Added: 27-Apr-2015 Hits: 721 )
  • The Psychology of Leadership in Rapidly Changing Conditions: A Structural Psychological Approach By Patch et al
    A structural psychological approach to understanding effective executive leadership is presented. It is argued that effective leadership requires the capacity to respond in an adaptive manner to emergent, dynamic, and complex situations. This capacity, in turn, depends on the readiness to acquire new skills and strategies for coping with complexity and change. In this approach, the whole (the personality organization, the self-system), in addition to being different from and greater than the sum of its parts, causally determines the fate of the parts, so that the emergent, holistic properties of the whole at all different levels become causally real in their own form. The psychological construct of active coping (Shanan, 1990) is used to demonstrate the conceptual link between personality structure and effective leadership. Propositions toward a general psychological model of leadership are outlined, and suggestions for investigating the model empirically are made. In this article, we address the relationship between personality and effective leadership in business settings. (Added: 27-Apr-2015 Hits: 931 )
  • The Psychology of Leadership: Part I By Edward Hoffman, Ph.D.
    Do you have the right stuff? What exactly is the right stuff, anyway? Can you still have it if you're not an astronaut, a general, or a famous sport coach? Can you be a leader if you're a computer scientist, a biotech engineer, an international marketer, an educator, or an organizational consultant? How about an artist or a writer? Currently, there are over 8,000 books on leadership available... (Added: 14-May-2012 Hits: 1045 )
