This Special Issue offers deeper insight about Leadership, Sustainable Operations and Occupational Stress. The aim is to encourage authors and readers to discuss and question the existing trends in leadership and their linkage with occupational stress and sustainable operations.
The context, complexities, and connectedness encompassing the theories and practices related to various application domains within the social sciences, especially related to leadership, remain the focus of this Special Issue. It offers a scope to have more practical solutions to businesses facing the issues of leadership crises.
With the rapid changes in the environment, there is continuous flux creating occupational stress and intensifying competition, which further questions the approaches of leaders to retain psychological capital while not compromising on sustainability. The volatile environment is driving leaders to be more responsive, authentic, inclusive, and ethical in their daily operations so that they can achieve sustainability.
This Special Issue covers the wide range of leadership theories and practices under the sustainability umbrella, examining the relationship with various types of occupational stress and other contributing factors. We welcome the submission of theoretical and practical developments related to existing studies revising, revisiting, and further exploring the modernized methods to fill the gaps in existing leadership-related knowledge by recommending sustainable means.
The existing literature has focused on the general notion of the linkage between leadership and sustainable operations, while only briefly touching on occupational stress. However, questioning the leadership and vision of leaders while dealing with occupational stress remains understudied. The most effective leadership trends in the wake of the current context, complexities, and connectedness requires a fresh insight. How global and domestic leaders implement sustainable operations is missing from the existing literature. There is still no conclusive evidence from the multinational perspective to find the most appropriate methods of leadership. Whether there are certain types of leadership and sustainable operations which are more concerned with “means” or “ends” remains unknown. Thus, this Special Issue is a path-breaker aiming to offer more practical and comprehensive solutions for dealing with various types of occupational stress.
The objective of this Special Issue is to promote path-breaking research on impact leadership, optimized sustainable operations, and human capital, dealing with various stressors to formulate a new body of knowledge to assist businesses, leaders, and top management in the creation of sustainable organizations.
