The purpose of Leadership update
The steady stream of new ideas, models and experiences make leadership an elusive and contested phenomenon. Leadership is sometimes praised as the moste distinct competence in organizations and the main driving force for change in society, and at other times dismissed as a field of fads with little or no impact.
Leadership Update is a forum where different perspectives will be investigated and discussed, using a critical research perspective, says professor Ingalill Holmberg, Managing Director of CASL and publisher of Leadership Update.
Thus the forum aims to be of relevance to anyone who has an interest in leadership issues. According to editor Pernilla Petrelius Karlberg it can be practicing managers and leaders, co-workers, consultants, journalists and researchers from different discipline.
- From IFL’s stand point the ambition is to offer clients, participants and networks a challenging view on leadership trends and buzz words, that will help them to reflect on their own leadership practice and to develop sustainable leaders and leadership, says Kristina Nilsson, Director of Faculty and Product Development at IFL.
The forum offers content in various forms, such as columns, interviews and podcast. They will be in English or Swedish. The forum is updated approximately once a month.
