Purpose – This paper aims to review the latest management developments across the globe and pinpoint practical implications from cutting-edge research and case studies. Design/methodology/approach – This briefing is prepared by an independent writer who adds impartial comments and places the articles in context. Findings – This paper examines different kinds of leadership – the transactional and the transformational (which typically is displayed by more charismatic, open-minded bosses), via data from a survey of police officers in the USA. A leadership challenge model created by the authors captures aspects of both kinds of leadership. Practical implications – This paper provides strategic insights and practical thinking that have influenced some of the world’s leading organizations. Originality/value – The briefing saves busy executives and researchers hours of reading time by selecting only the very best, most pertinent information and presenting it in a condensed and easy-to-digest format.
