Research on Leadership: Running in Place or Fermenting Old Wine in a New Bottle?
Watkins, J. Foster; Watkins, Sally R.
A retired professor of educational leadership/higher education looks back to the literature review in his dissertations (1966) and moves forward over some 50 years of his personal research and his collaboration with his colleagues and doctoral students. The resulting document from the reflective process is shared in this submission. As reflected in the title, the position is taken that the leadership research has been "running in place" and the summary position is advanced that "we have been fermenting old wine in a new bottle". A bibliography is included.
