Leadership in Changing Times

Conference Brochure:- Click here

The conceptualization of the construct of leadership has changed with changing times. The rapid change in the political, economic, social and cultural environment of the organization has created a need to relook at the leadership research.

The journey from heroic to post heroic leadership has brought forth different dimensions of leadership. On one side transformational, charismatic and authentic leadership focus on individual’s trait, behavior and competence, the post heroic leadership researcher’s focus on collective and relational aspect of leadership. Research has also shifted the focus of leadership from leader to followers and to the larger situational context. While majority of the researchers have been studying the positive dimension of leadership, a smaller section brought to the fore, the darker side of leadership. Thus, with the times, the dimensions of leadership that are researched have only increased.

In the past, researchers have used various lenses to comprehend leadership phenomenon. The most frequently used lenses include influence, power. However, recent research in the area of leadership addresses questions such as online leadership, substitutes for and neutralizers of leadership.

In the 7th International HR Conference 2020, we invite submissions that seek to gain insight on the emerging trends in the leadership research. We invite research paper, conceptual paper, literature review, working paper, case study and view point from academicians, research scholars, consultants, practitioners from the industry, members of professional bodies and students, across the world to contribute on the following themes. The list is indicative but not exhaustive.
