The development of the private sector version of the (Engaging) Transformational Leadership Questionnaire (ESQ)

By Beverly M. Alimo-Metcalfe and R.J. Alban-Metcalfe


NoNotions of leadership change over time. The last two decades have been dominated by US models of ¿heroic¿ leadership, based largely on predominately male-biased samples, which have been focused on studies of ¿distant¿ leaders, but these are being challenged by the findings from more recent studies which question the potential dangers of adulating the few ¿gifted¿ ¿charismatic¿ individuals, not least of which because of the disasters they may cause. In addition, there is a growing interest by organisations of identifying how they can increase ¿engagement¿ amongst their employees, since this process appears to contribute significantly to organisational success. This study seeks to replicate an earlier study of ¿nearby¿ leadership in UK public sector organisations
