Positioning leadership: an overview of the academic debate on leadership in the voluntary sector


The Centre for Voluntary Sector Leadership has produced the first of three briefing papers exploring the topic of leadership in the UK voluntary sector.

This paper concentrates on reviewing literature that is best characterised as broadly concerning the debate about leadership within the UK voluntary sector, but it goes on to open this up wherever possible to explore the broader influence of debates on leadership which have influenced thinking about leadership in the sector.
