Leadership On Demand: Followers as initiators and inhibitors of managerial leadership
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
A key aspect of leadership is the followers’ constructions of its value and relevance. Based on two empirical, qualitative case studies, this paper highlights the importance of the ‘demand’ for leadership when leader–follower relationships are established. We further discuss how followers influence, inhibit and initiate managerial leadership (i.e. leadership acts from their formal superior targeting themselves), and suggest ‘Leadership On Demand’ as a useful metaphor when trying to conceptualize the leader–follower dynamics in our study.
