Leadership Against Demand

Leadership Against Demand This article focuses on leadership as a job: what challenges leaders actually face and what they need to do to meet them. It argues that leaders of organisations in the public sector need to focus on improvements to frontline services to the public, while also satisfying government agendas and targets. A leader's role should not focus on managing people but on improving the system with the people and this systems view requires leadership against demand. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png The International Journal of Leadership in Public Services Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This article focuses on leadership as a job: what challenges leaders actually face and what they need to do to meet them. It argues that leaders of organisations in the public sector need to focus on improvements to frontline services to the public, while also satisfying government agendas and targets. A leader's role should not focus on managing people but on improving the system with the people and this systems view requires leadership against demand.
