Special Issue "Servant Leadership, New Directions in Research, Theory and Practice"
A special issue of Administrative Sciences (ISSN 2076-3387).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2016)
Servant leadership is an area of research that is fast growing. Originating in the last century with Greenleaf’s original work, we are moving into a new era where the relevance for servant leadership is as current as ever. Research is teaching us about core elements that work and help move servant leadership into an evidence-based approach; organisations are working with its core principles, which teaches us about how it works in day-to-day, highly competitive markets.
For this Special Issue, we are looking to bring together a group of articles that together provide an overview of current thinking, empirical research and practice of the determinants, underlying processes and consequences of servant leadership (e.g., outcomes for employees, customers, patients); and add to the literature a continued understanding of how servant leadership works. We welcome papers that are purely conceptual, test theoretical models with quantitative survey data, or are grounded in qualitative data.
The current Special Issue is directly linked with the upcoming third Global Servant Leadership Research Roundtable in Iceland (see: thjonandiforysta.is/roundtable2016/). We encourage presenters at the roundtable to submit their paper to this special issue. Additionally, we also welcome submissions from people that are unable to join us in Iceland.
