Asking the Wrong Questions about Leadership
Graen, George B.
American Psychologist, v62 n6 p604-605 Sep 2007
Comments on the article by R. J. Hackman and R. Wageman (see record 2006-23492-007) which presented some directions for leadership research. Hackman and Wageman organized their article around their five reject-accept questions suggesting new directions. The current author discusses how each of the questions appears far too timid for real progress in sorting out the chaff from the grain, but points out that the Hackman and Wageman article was a critique of five companion articles and made a substantial contribution to the literature.
