Abstract

Interest in the relationship between leadership and culture first garnered attention during the ‘cultural turn’ in management and organization studies in the 1980s (Peters & Waterman, 1982; Smircich and Morgan, 1982; Morgan, 1986) and has grown considerably in subsequent decades. We now stand at a point where there is a substantive body of literature on how leadership manifests itself within organizational cultures as well as across diverse national cultural contexts. In this chapter, we begin by introducing the reader to literature on leadership from various extant perspectives paying particular critical attention to social psychological and psychological approaches that currently dominate the field of leadership studies. We then proceed to explore new thought and emerging directions for culturally alert and sensitive research into relationships between culture and leadership. In so doing, we make no apology for privileging interpretative and critical approaches to the study of leadership and culture – particularly those drawn from disciplines of anthropology and postcolonial studies – as we contend that these offer means of addressing the most pressing issues faced in this area. We draw selectively on our own scholarship and empirical research to propose and illustrate possibilities for fresh research agendas.
