Women in History: Mary Parker Follett--A Leadership Theorist Ahead of Her Time
Gaspar, Sandy
Journal of Women in Educational Leadership, v2 n4 p211-213 Oct 2004
This article profiles Mary Parker Follet, a management and leadership voice in the 1920s and 30s who was far ahead of her time. Throughout her lifetime, Follet refused to accept the dualities and dichotomies that threatened to divide individuals and organizations. In her book, "The New State," Follet argued that group organization and local networks were keys to the advancement of democratic societies (1918). Follet wrote "Creative Experience" in 1924 as the result of a growing interest in industrial relations and management. Until the end of her life, Follet wrote, lectured, and served as a management consultant for organizations in the United States and Britain.
