"Psycho- dynamic issues in leadership studies"
This chapter reviews psychodynamic issues in leadership theory, leadership in organisations, and leadership development. It begins with an overview of pertinent psychodynamic concepts. In addition, the chapter touches on some of the psychodynamic issues at play in leadership development. In leadership development, experiential programs in business schools have created powerful learning opportunities for leaders who need to take the time out to reflect. At the same time, equal attention must still be paid in these programs to skill-building and technical expertise.
