Dynamics of Leadership.
Gibb, Jack R.
Examined are two types of leadership. The first type is authoritarian or paternalistic and seems appropriate to a world of machines. This is a defensive leadership built on fear and little trust between people. Techniques for control are developed which often produce undesired results such as apathy or resistance. The alternative is emergent leadership, built on trust and confidence in others. Goals and controls come from the group process, rather than the leader. The author suggests these concepts of leadership as particularly challenging to the university. Current student-administration conflicts emphasize the need for participatory or emergent leadership by administrators. (NS)
