Six models of leadership….
Six different models of leadership are offered as examples:
- James MacGregor Burns;
- Robert K. Greenleaf (see Spears);
- Warren Bennis and Burt Nanus;
- John P. Kotter;
- James M. Kouzes and Barry Z. Posner; and
- Joseph C. Rost.
In the 1980s and 1990s, management researchers, scholars, and consulting “gurus” published a plethora of books on leadership. A number of claimed both Burns and Greenleaf as intellectual antecedents. The models that follow are meant to be illustrative; more will emerge as class participants report on the books they are currently reading, and digest and discuss the examples offered by Rowitz.
