Title

Leadership and sustainable entrepreneurship: classical approaches and contemporary contexts


Abstract

The purpose of this research paper is to develop a theoretical framework of leadership behaviours and attributes which are unanimously endorsed. The model investigates a set of independent variables encompassing leadership behaviours. Leadership behaviours examined this research include task oriented, charismatic, visionary, team oriented, servant leadership and authentic. The literature review examines prior research studies on various aspects of leadership dimensions. A theoretical model clarifying the significance and establishing justification of selection of the abovementioned leadership behaviours and prior support for universal endorsement for some these dimensions e.g. Charismatic and Transformational leadership. Planned Methodology, measurement, empirical testing and application of the theoretical model is investigated where qualitative and quantitative approaches could be applied. A quantitative approach is employed to design a survey questionnaire to identify the appropriate conceptualisation of integrated leadership attributes and behaviour items. Higher Education, Banking, Insurance and telecommunication industries are potential industries that could be targeted and investigated in this research study. The competitive advantage of the theoretical model is characterised by the combination and integration of various characteristics and attributes of leadership which have elements of contradiction and consistency. The model argues that in spite of the divergence between different leadership attributes, they transcend national and organisational borders and maintain their importance in rather different contemporary contexts.
