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.

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.
