Abstract:

The context of organizational leadership is changing, as challenges emerge from widespread social change. Authoritarian styles are becoming less useful, while democratic styles increase in usefulness. With education and political maturity, groups become less responsive to Great Men, packaged leaders, and assumptions of correct opinions. Pluralistic styles of leadership will be in demand, as groups with different interests proliferate. It will become more difficult to achieve success for leaders who have to fake concern about their followers interests. Author
