What is it about?
The quest to find definitive answers about leadership has proved elusive. Leadership defies a single definition – it changes with the situation, and with shifting expectations and demands. It changes in everyday practice. This raises important questions for leadership development and for the pedagogies on which our development practice is based (Reynolds and Trehan 2008). Some would say that ‘leadership’ and by implication leadership development, is poised to become an expanding site of interest and development for students of organization as well as for those of us involved in leadership programmes. This editorial explores the practice of leadership as a social and political process, and leadership as practices (Raelin 2014).
