- For Experts
Lund University’s Mats Alvesson, Martin Blom and Stefan Sveningsson offer a different take on leadership. Their leadership theory proposes that organizations don’t always need leaders. The authors base their recommendations on empirical studies, their original research and the concept of “reflexivity” in modern leadership. Though they can be pedantic, they are writing for an audience of leadership academics and industry consultants first and corporate executives second. Still, their call for thoughtfulness and reflection can help leaders in all settings think more deeply about their roles.
