Consequences of leadership

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the consequences of leadership, rigorously questioning the extent to which the claims of a link between leadership and performance are justified, both in terms of evidence of causation and also because of attributional processes. The discussion explores evidence of impact by using the public value chain (covering inputs, activities, partnerships, outputs, user satisfaction and outcomes) and emphasising the need to consider the contribution to the common good not just contribution to organisational or network effectiveness.

Keywords: leadership consequences; leadership performance; network effectiveness; user satisfaction; public value chain
